66 Lenten Songs & Hymns Handpicked for Worship

Lent is a special season to ponder Jesus and His unbelievable work of salvation.

It’s useful to set aside a specific season in the church calendar to reflect on the price of our sin and the outrageous grace with which Christ saves us!

Lent is also a time to consider our response to our God and renew our commitment to Him.

During church services in this season, appropriate worship songs can help us in such reflections.
