Easter Song is a song written by Annie Herring of the Jesus music group the 2nd Chapter of Acts that tells of Jesus Christ’s resurrection and the elation Christians feel about this resurrection on Easter. It was first recorded in 1974 and released on the band’s debut album, With Footnotes. It continues to be performed, appearing in church hymnals and Easter songbooks as well as on Wow Gold CD. It has been covered by several other artists, including GLAD and Keith Green. According to Tori Taff of CCM Magazine, “The opening notes to ‘Easter Song’ just may be the single most recognizable intro in contemporary Christian music”. The song even achieved moderate success as a crossover on mainstream radio stations. In 1998 CCM Magazine named “Easter Song” as the No. 4 Christian song of all time.
