After hearing her singing abilities, he decided to write this song for her voice only after she agreed to do it free of charge as long as they could use it in their own services and recordings.[1]

The song became very popular after being featured on Michael W. Smith’s 2002 album Worship with Integrity: Hymns of Worship Vol 2,[2] which reached number one on Billboard Christian Albums chart [3] while also peaking at number four on Billboard 200.[4][5] It was later included in other albums such as Women of Faith Unplugged (2003),[6] United We Sing (2005) etc.,[7][8] making this track popular among churches all over America today.[9][10][11]

by Keith Green

This song was written in 2003, but it continues to be one of the most highly rated and played worship songs today.

The Power of Your Love is a contemporary Christian song from the album The Heart of Worship by Hillsong Live which was released in 2004. It was written by Darlene Zschech. The lyrics deal with praise for God’s love and manifestation through Jesus Christ as well as faith in his salvation for all people regardless of their achievements or righteousness (1 John 4:10).

Lord I Lift Your Name On High is written by Gloria Gaither (music) and William J Gaither Jr (lyrics) who wrote other famous gospel songs like “In His Presence” (1977). This hymn refers to God’s involvement in bringing about redemption through his son Jesus Christ who died on Calvary’s cross so that we may be saved from our sins by believing in him alone (John 14:6).

Shout to the Lord was originally composed as an instrumental piece titled “Praise Him” while they were rehearsing together during their youth group days at Trinity Bible College near Lancaster PA USA where they attended day school sessions together during those times under Dr James Fogleman professor of Old Testament Studies. Later after graduation from Trinity Bible College both musicians moved back home along with other friends from college; it wasn’t until 1999 when Phil Wickham asked David Crowder if he could record some instrumentals for solo projects that this song came about which later became “Shout To The Lord,” since then it has become one of David Crowder Band’s most popular songs being covered by many artists around world including Michael W Smith whose cover version reached No 1 position on US Billboard Christian Hit Radio Singles chart as well

Most Popular Praise And Worship Songs Lyrics

The Lord is my Shepherd

I shall not want

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures, He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; and my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.*

I just want to say thank you

To the One who made a way

For me

To be here with you today

I’m so grateful for this moment, Lord.

God is Alive – Michael W. Smith

Now, we don’t know about you, but when we hear that a Christian worship song was released in 1980, we immediately assume it’s going to be epic. Well, this one is! Michael W. Smith and Wayne Kirkpatrick wrote it, and it is based on the story of Jesus’ resurrection. To top it off, it was produced by Michael W. Smith and Brown Bannister, so you know this is going to be some good stuff. Let’s read the lyrics together:

Come Adore Our God – Jeremy Riddle

Come Adore Our God

Come, all you faithful people, come adore our God. Come, all you that in Him do trust; come, O come with a humble mind to His courts above. Come and worship at His feet with praises loud and long. Come and worship at His feet with praises loud and long. He is so worthy of the highest praise who gave himself for your sake; he has done for you what no other could do; He has pleased his Father on your behalf; he rose from death to life again! He has done for you what no other could do: He has made us meet again at the banquet of his love, where as many as were lost are found!

The album is a powerful instrumental collection, but it’s also full of uplifting lyrics that are perfect for singing along to on Sunday mornings or other times when you want to get your church family in the spirit. “Fireflies and Songs” does well in being Christian without sounding dated; if you have never heard of Jason Gray before, “Fireflies and Songs” will be an easy introduction to his work. It would be great to listen while reading scripture together, because these songs remind us why we’re there in the first place.

You Make Me Brave – Bethel Music & Amanda Cook

You make me brave, you call me out beyond the shore into the waves. You make me brave, you call me out beyond the shore into the waves. No fear can hinder now, the love that made a way. Through you the dead are raised, in you the blind will see.

Through your spirit I will rise up on eagles wings. Before you here I stand, there’s no God like Yahweh. It is finished and it is done, Jesus Christ has overcome!

This is Amazing Grace – Phil Wickham

This is an amazing song of worship and the lyrics are really powerful and encouraging. This song is written by Phil Wickham. I would highly recommend listening to this song no matter what mood you’re in, it’s a great way to be uplifted and encouraged!

This is Amazing Grace Lyrics:

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness

Whose love is mighty and so much stronger

The King of Glory, the King above all kings

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder

And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder

The King of Glory, the King above all kings!

We Believe – Newsboys Bethel Music, Passion & Kristian Stanfill

You are the Lord

You are the King of kings, Lord of lords

My heart will sing, how I love You!

Lord I Need You (Live) – Matt Maher, Christy Nockels, Jesse Reeves, Kristian Stanfill & Chris Tomlin

The lyrics of the song talk about how we, as humans, need salvation and for God to search our hearts to deliver us from evil. It is apparent in the song that we are not perfect and so we need His help. The chorus of the song tells us that there is a crying out to God and even though sometimes people fall short on their promises, they remember that the Lord has never failed His people.

The words “Teach my heart to surrender” tells us that people still want to learn more about God and they are willing to submit themselves to Him. In this case, it means submitting ourselves to His will and trusting in Him. In addition, it may also signify a willingness on our part to give up worldly desires as a way of repentance or atonement for our sins.’
