Songs For Holy Week

Songs for Holy Week4:06 AM.   Since I can’t sleep anyway, I thought I’d put up a few songs you may want to ponder during Holy Week.

1. “Keeping Vigil” connects our own passion with that of Christ.

2. “Stay Awake” takes you through the dismal disorientation the apostle Peter felt while failing to keep watch with Christ in Gethsemane.

3. “This is Love” is taken from the prayer Jesus prays for his friends as he wrestles in the brutal isolation of his passion (John’s Gospel).

4. “Gone is the Light” keens Good Friday’s desolation.

5. “Was it a Morning Like This” sings the joyful astonishment of Christ’s resurrection.
