It’s no longer a secret because I will expose this to the world. Have you heard that there are some songs you need to add to your playlist this Easter period? Well, I know a lot of people, especially those who are enveloped by the secular world but want to try the church boy thing this season, may find it difficult to select songs to add to their playlists. Weep no more cos I gat your back. Here is my list of songs you should not just add to your playlist but put on replay.
1. “Via Dolorosa” by Sandi Patty
If I don’t mention this song, everyone around me will be shocked. I don’t know why I’m glued to this song since my friend, Sarah told me about it. This song could fit in anywhere; you can sing to it, slow dance to it, use it for your pantomime; you can listen to it with your earpiece, and allow the striking voice of Sandi Patty to take you on a ride through the emotional street where hope is the bus stop. Via Dolorosa is a Latin word that means “Sorrowful way” or “Way of Suffering”. It’s a route through the old city of Jerusalem that is believed to be the path Jesus walked to his crucifixion.
2. “Glory” by Moses Bliss
I’m a fan of homemade, so don’t expect me to just dish out foreign songs alone here. This particular song by Moses Bliss is powerful. It talks about love and commitment.
3. “Nothing but the Blood of Jesus” by Carrie Underwood
How many of us are familiar with this traditional hymn?
“…What can wash away my son’s
Nothing but the blood of Jesus…”
Carrie Underwood really did her homework well, she gave this hymn her own distinctive melodic spin.
4. “My Redeemer Lives” by Nicole C Mullen
When last did you listen to this song? Oya, go and listen to it again. This time focusing on the lyrics, you will return to this page with your chicken, goat, and bags of rice for Thanksgiving.
5. “Thief” by Third day
This band called “Third Day” is killed when it comes to dishing out songs that can fit in for this season. “Thief” is told from the point of view of one of the thieves crucified alongside Jesus.
6. “I Have a Saviour” by CeCe Winans
The deep genuine words and incomparable voice of the best-selling and most-awarded gospel singer of all time will leave you breathless.
7. “Thank you Jesus” by Charity Gayle
I don’t really know Charity Gayle that well but I assure you that this track is dope. It’s a tribute to honor. A song of gratitude to Christ for the ultimate sacrifice. It is a song everyone can relate to.
8. “Kumama” by Grace Lokwa
Knowing the meaning of this song will help you relate better.
Ah zwa nga bomwana
(He adopted me as His child)
Ah zwa nga bomwana kumama, Papa eh
(My father adopted me as His child)
Eh Yahweh kumama, papa eh
(Yahweh be Praised, My father)
Kisi ya Soni kumana, papa eh
(My father wiped away my shame)
Eh Yahwe kumama, Papa eh (Yahweh be Praised, My father)
There are so many versions of this song, whichever you chose to listen to will still do the job.
9. “Tobechukwu” by Nathaniel Bassey
Well, the song is trending, so what do you expect? It has to be in everyone’s playlist. We were lifted the very moment he died and rose on the third day.
10. “Mary, Did You Know?” by Pentatonics
Someone will say it’s a Christmas song. But we can’t have an Easter without his birth.
