Last week the kind folks over at God’s Kids Worship sent me their new “A Big Basket of Easter Songs” resource. I’m very impressed and I hope that they continue to offer seasonal resources like this. When Easter comes around, usually our curriculum takes advantage of the season to teach specific content to connect kids to the Easter story. However, curriculum doesn’t always provide music, and if they do, it may or may not be geared specifically to your opportunity to teach about Easter. There are so many songs with deep biblical and theological significance when it comes to Easter and God’s Kids Worship has gathered together some of the best for you this Easter.
It’s a great mix of hymns and modern worship songs. Depending on your church and worship style, many of the 15 songs might be just what you’re looking for. As I watched the videos, I found a handful that I really liked and thought we could incorporate into our worship environments. There were other songs that didn’t fit my church stylistically, but the content and words are so significant, I’d consider using the song to play during a quite moment of the service where kids can listen to the words and contemplate the message.
It’s a great resource and certainly worth checking out. It’s likely to have songs you’ll use year after year as well as mixing in some songs all throughout the year, not just Easter.
Personally, some of my favorites were:
- If I don’t praise him (Great fast song)
- Beautiful Savior
- Jesus Paid it All (What a powerful song)
- Nothing but the Blood (It’s not what I was expecting, a new take on this old song)
- This is the Way God Loved (Great message in the lyrics)
If you haven’t ever used God’s Kids Worship, you might beÂ surprised. It’s a power-packed resource that includes:
- Lyric Videos on DVD
- Both Mac and PC video files to use in your presentation software
- Lyrics on PDF format to print
- Audio files to burn CD’s for volunteers to practice
All the music is split-track soÂ thatÂ you can just use the music if you would like. The other component is that God’s Kids uses only kids vocals.
So, it’s a greatÂ resourceÂ that you shouldÂ definitelyÂ check out! Feel free to click here to learn more and order this Easter DVD Pack. God’s Kids has also been a proud sponsor of this site for many months, so you can always click on the ad to the right to see everything that they offer.

Thanks for the additional resource. Its always a struggle to find new music that is relevant and good at the same time.
Would you say within the average Kids Ministry the kids prefer music with kid voices or adult voices?
