Unlikely Easter Songs
by Molly Shorter
If you have been already been scheduled to sing for Easter... then you need to choose a song! If you haven't been asked to sing yet but want to be prepared when you are asked... then you need to find a song!
There are so many Easter songs available to choose from. Some are classics and some are brand new. As you begin to check out songs, I would like to bring to your attention some unlikely Easter songs - songs that are not considered Easter songs but would fit nicely into an Easter service. Check out these songs with a sampling of the lyrics.
