This week, Josh preached from John 20:19-31. Our songs were gathered with the second week of Easter in mind. Below, you’ll find the list of the songs and artists. Clicking the song titles will take you to the lyrics. Below the songs, there is an example of one way you might think of these songs in light of this week's theme.

How They Fit In:
There are many ways to think about the significance of songs and the way they fit together–-this is simply one way you can look at these songs in light of this week’s theme.
Chariot: The chorus of this song is "we will become a happy ending." This statement captures one of the simplest truths we think about in light of Easter--Jesus' death and resurrection have changed history, and we can be confident that all that is broken will be fixed.
Jesus Paid It All: This song captures another implication of Jesus' death and resurrection: the things about us that should separate us from God are overshadowed by the fact that Jesus gave himself up for us.
Revelation Song: In the crucifixion, we see the glory of God correctly: God was willing to be made a fool, tortured, and killed to save us. The resurrection is the crown jewel of this moment, where we see that the risen Christ was not vengeful, but patient and loving. This song proclaims God's greatness in light of this.
Noise: This song rests in the simple truth that, though we have all amounted to broken promises in some way, God is working to redeem us.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
