Top 12 Extra- Worship

Sunday, January 31, 2021



I have been a worship leader or part of a team for close to 20 years. I have sung many worship songs during that time. I look for songs that are fitting for congregational singing- they have a sound biblical theme and it's easy for people to sing. Some songs have worked very well and continue to be used in my worship planning.

Praise Charts is a very popular website for sheet music for worship leaders. They have put together the Top 100 Worship Songs of All Time.  These are the Top 20-

20. Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)- Casting Crowns
19. Noel- Lauren Daigle/Chris Tomlin
18. Oceans- Hillsong UNITED
17. Living Hope- Phil Wickham
16. In Christ Alone- Travis Cottrell
15. Jesus Paid It All- Passion
14. Lord I Need You- Matt Maher
13. O Come To The Altar- Elevation Worship
12. Who You Say I Am- Hillsong Worship
11. Our God- Chris Tomlin
10. Jesus Messiah- Chris Tomlin
9. Forever- Kari Jobe
8. How Great Is Our God- Chris Tomlin
7. What A Beautiful Name- Hillsong Worship
6. Joy To The World (Unspeakable Joy)- Chris Tomlin
5. This Is Amazing Grace- Phil Wickham
4. Mighty To Save- Hillsong Worship
3. Cornerstone- Hillsong Worship
2. Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)- Chris Tomlin
1. 10,000 Reasons- Matt Redman

In the top 20, Chris Tomlin had six songs, while Hillsong (UNITED & Worship) had five songs, and they had many more songs in the top 100. Two of the top 3 songs are contemporary versions of classic hymns. 

There are many great worship songs that are out there today. When I plan my worship sets, I make it a point to mix in some of these tried and true songs with a new song. My goal is to make sure the music emotionally and spiritually connects people to Jesus. These songs continue to do that!
