We are now in the Easter Season. Pentecost is coming soon. Pentecost is the traditional celebration as to the birth of the Church, when the Holy Spirit (which Jesus had promised to His followers) descended upon those in the upper room, giving them power to evangelize and to heal.
I am preparing a music resource that will employ the use of many traditional hymns and current worship songs to celebrate the events that occurred in Acts 2. My question is: What are your favorite traditional hymns and praise choruses for Pentecost?
The first section of songs are all in the public domain. The second section of songs are not. They are culled from every resource I have at my disposal–ccli.com, hymnary.org, and the many songbooks, hymnals and various missallette publishing resources. They cut across all denominations.
I need your help, so to ascertain which songs people are hungry for, and which songs are blind spots. I am discovering there’s so many riches in our Christian faith, we can truly benefit from making these songs our own. Your assistance will ensure that we can help discover anew our heritage and grow from these songs.
Thank you for participating!
