The Best Worship Songs…Ever

I always wonder who comes up with this stuff. The best worship songs ever? Who decides? Is this God’s top 50?

In all seriousness, what is your current favorite worship song? I’m always on the lookout for great songs that resonate with people’s hearts. Just for fun, if someone mentions my current favorite worship song, I’ll send you two of my CDs for free. One for you, one to give away.

Let me know. On your mark, get set, comment.

  1. I love the bridge to hillsong united’s hosanna. Every time I sing the lyrics it touches me. But overall, I’ve been a big fan of freedom reigns lately. An oldie but a goodie. Annnnnnd delirious’ rain down.

    • Bro, love all those tunes. Have you heard the new Jesus Culture version of “Freedom Reigns”?

      • I heard it in concert when they came to Cleveland but haven’t heard it on their new album yet

  2. My favourite is Chris Tomlin’s Our God is Greater – this has a special meaning to me and it is a very declarative song!

    • You know what, Kyra? That song is #2 on my list right now 🙂 Love it!

  3. I think Where the Streets Have No Name is brilliant 😉

    • Dude, seriously brilliant. I have yet to lead worship with that song, but I think I should 🙂 Btw, just subscribed to your blog. Didn’t know you had one!

  4. I LOVE the song ‘Just to Be with You’ by Paul Baloche. It’s so simple and refreshing. And a great congregational sing!

  5. I have to concur with Kyra on “Our God Is Greater” by Chris Tomlin. I always feel so fulfilled when I sing it. 🙂

  6. i love the song “we love you jesus” by shane and shane, all thier stuff is great. i have to agree jesus culture is great too, but my favorite right now is “God of Justice” by Tim Hughes

  7. I’ve actually been really into Beautiful Exchange from Hillsong. Been waiting for my copy of Jesus Culture to come in the mail though.

    • There’s also Cory Asbury – Shekinah which is gonna be on the new ihop album out this coming Friday. You need to check that song out. (Probably not one for a regular church service though)

    • Dude Jesus Culture listening party when you get back

  8. I Love the song My Savior My God By Aaron Shust. When my Grand father was a Hindu Guru/priest he was seeking for a Savior who Lives and a Savior who Loves, he found out that Jesus Christ is that Savior! How Great is our God who Lives and Loves us & worthy of All our Praise and Worship!

    • Wow, great story Raj. Great song too.

  9. My favorite is Chris Tomlins new one I will Follow!!

    Comment by Jason Nicholas | November 23, 2010 | Reply

    • Yea, dude. Have you lead worship with that tune?

      Comment by dsantistevan | November 24, 2010 | Reply

  10. By current, do you mean on the radio now? Or which ones are on my personal hit parade? Cause if it’s the latter, there’s no way I could limit it to 50!

    Some at the top of my list include: “Worshiping You” by Deluge, “No Sweeter Name” and “How He Loves” by David Walker, “Amazed” and “Ever Faithful” by Brad & Rebekah, “My Tribute Melody” by Israel Houghton, “Son of God” by Starfield, “You Deserve the Glory” by Aaron Keyes, and of course two of yours “For The Glory” and “Way of Surrentder”

  11. Couple of my favorites right now are “How He Loves” by John Mark McMillan and “Arms Open Wide” by Hillsong.

  12. “Forever Reign” by Hillsong (actually written by Jason Ingram of One Sonic Society) is pretty bomb too.

    Comment by Eric Haley | November 24, 2010 | Reply

    • Bro, we’ve been doing “Forever Reign” and loving it. Such a great declaration.

      Comment by dsantistevan | November 24, 2010 | Reply

  13. I changed my vote…as much as I love “Our God is Greater”, I feel totally empowered and uplifted by Skillet’s “Awake and Alive”. It may be unconventional, but Skillet is an excellent Christian rock band and I love them! 🙂
