He Is Risen • An Easter Playlist

March 4, 2013 1 Comments

***Edited to add: There is now an updated version of this playlist available here. I hope you enjoy!*** 

Well, as you probably know– and if you don’t, you should— there are four weeks until Easter Sunday.

I love this time of year. While the crisp days of early autumn are my favorite time of year, the weeks leading up to Easter are a close second. And Easter itself is my most favorite holiday of all.

While I’ve been getting in the Easter spirit for awhile now (see my recent post on Lent here), I thought now would be a pretty good time to share the playlist I’ve been listening to lately as I strive to deepen my personal meditation on the atoning sacrifice of our Savior.

This is a group of songs that I have put together over the last few years, consistently adding to it over time– just like my other playlists that I’ve posted. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as my family has.

(If you are reading this post on an RSS feed reader, please be aware that there is a widget link to my Spotify playlist on my site which will allow you to listen to the entire playlist for free.)
