My 25 Favorite Christian Songs

Christian artists put so much heart and soul into their music, which is why I think many songs are so powerful and can almost touch your bones. I listen to Christian music a lot and it’s uplifting and encouraging. I find myself paying attention to certain lyrics more after listening to a life-changing sermon. I believe that this is not coincidental as I’m often reminded of where my relationship is with God and that He truly is in control.

Here are my 25 favorite Christian songs. I found it impossible to place them in a specific order, as I consider many of these tunes tied.

“The Truth" Isaiah 26:4 “Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.”

I need a miracle"”

“I know who goes before me

I know who stands behind

The God of angel armies

I hope these songs are a great reminder of what an awesome God we serve and He knows what you need every moment of every day. He knows your fear. He knows your excitement. He knows your uncertainty. Most of all, He knows what to do! I encourage you to send me your favorite Christian song and let me know why you love it so much!
