As we go through life we have our ups and downs. Sometimes we even get hurt along the way. This could be a physical hurt from an accident, or something a little deeper like the hurt that comes when you have a strained relationship. As we wait for the healing that comes only from the Master Healer, our Heavenly Father, often times a great Christian healing song eases our pain.
Christian Songs for Healing
Here are my 8 favorite Christian songs about healing; they include a mix of great hymns of faith and as well as some more recent contemporary songs.
8. He Will Carry Me
Favorite Lyrics: “And even though I'm walking through the valley of the shadow I will hold tight to the hand of Him Whose love will comfort me. And when all hope is gone and I've been wounded in the battle He is all the strength that I will ever need He will carry me.”
7. Still my God
Favorite Lyrics: “In a world where so much seems uncertain You remain both for the strong and broken. No matter where we are You are never far and nothing changes who You are.”
Bible Truth: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. - Hebrews 13:8
6. Leaning on the Everlasting Arms
Favorite Lyrics: “What have I to dread, what have I to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms? I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, leaning on the everlasting arms.”
5. Give Me Jesus
Favorite Lyrics: “In the morning when I rise, in the morning when I rise. In the morning when I rise give me Jesus”
Favorite Lyrics: “I believe You're my Healer I believe You are all I need I believe You're my Portion I believe You're more than enough for me Jesus You're all I need.”
Bible Truth: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. - 1 Peter 2:24
Favorite Lyrics: “It's not about me, Jesus, and all this is for You, for Your glory and Your faith, It's not about me. As if You should do things my way, You alone are God and I surrender.”
2. The Blood will Never Lose its Power
Favorite Lyrics: “It reaches to the highest mountain, it flows to the lowest valley; the blood that gives me strength from day to day, it will never lose its power.”
1. Even If
Perhaps the healing won’t come in this lifetime. This song made popular by the contemporary group Kutless reminds us that regardless of our life circumstance, God is still the Mighty One and because of this we should continue to sing His praise. Sing along with the video below.
Favorite Lyrics: “You're still the Great and Mighty One we trust You always. You're working all things for our good we'll sing your praise”
