Best Good Friday Worship Songs

Good Friday is a big deal. It’s the day when we celebrate the son of God giving His life to rescue us from our sin. So we should pay special attention to making our Good Friday worship services as special and engaging as possible.

Great worship sets always start with great worship songs. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out which songs to sing for special services. Obviously for Good Friday, we want to pick songs centered on the Cross. So we’ve done some digging for you, and have surfaced the best congregational worship songs about the cross. Consider using some of these for your Good Friday service.

In fact, to make your life even easier…here is a sample worship set for Good Friday. Feel free to use it exactly as is, or use it as a starting point and tweak it from there!
