Top 10 Passion Songs You Should Know

Since 1997, 22 live albums have been released from Passion conference events - and the newest one, Passion: Even So Come from Passion 2015 has recently released! The focus of these conferences is to bring college-aged Christians together to worship God in unity, but the albums are for all ages, no matter what you are currently going through on your walk with Christ. The conferences are uplifting and life-changing, with speakers and some of the best worship music you will experience!

Here are the top 10 Passion songs you should know, regardless if you have attended one of the conferences.

10. “One Thing Remains” (feat. Kristian Stanfill) from Passion: White Flag

This song is a great reminder that God never gives up on us – never! His love can overcome anything that may be holding you back.

Favorite Lyrics

Your love never fails
It never gives up
It never runs out on me
Your love

Higher than the mountains
That I face
Stronger than the power
Of the grave
Constant in the trial and the change
One thing remains
One thing remains

9. “The Cross Of Christ” (feat. Chris Tomlin) from Passion: Even So Come

This is a brand new song from Passion: Even So Come! I think about the freedom we have in Christ and how, for this alone, He is so worthy of glory and praise.

Favorite Lyrics

On the altar of our praise
Let there be no higher name
Jesus Son of God
You laid down Your perfect life
You are the sacrifice
Jesus Son of God
You are Jesus Son of God

You took our sin
You bore our shame
You rose to life
You defeated the grave
A love like this, the world has never known

8. “My Heart Is Yours” (feat. Kristian Stanfill) from Passion: Take It All

“My Heart Is Yours” is a song of surrender and accepting Christ as your Lord. There is so much power to overcome in Christ, but we must first give Him our lives.

Favorite Lyrics

I lay down my life
I take up my cross
For You are my God
Whatever the cost

7. “God’s Great Dance Floor” (feat. Chris Tomlin) from Passion: Let The Future Begin

“God’s Great Dance Floor” is a song that demands that you get up and dance! Dance out the joy you feel because of how Christ is working through you.

Favorite Lyrics

You’ll never stop loving us
No matter how far we run
You’ll never give up on us
All of heaven shouts: let the future begin

I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor

6. “Let It Be Jesus” (feat. Christy Nockels) from Passion: Take It All

Do you run to Jesus when you are in trouble? Do you run to Him when your day is falling apart? Do you run to Christ when all seems hopeless? What you get in return is the freedom to live without the chains of bondage.

Favorite Lyrics

Let it be Jesus
From the rising of the sun
Let it be Jesus
When all is said and done
I'll never need another, Jesus there's no other

For me, to live is Christ
For me, to live is Christ
God I breathe Your name above everything
Let it be, Let it be Jesus

5. “The Lord Our God” (feat. Kristian Stanfill) from Passion: Let The Future Begin

Only God is faithful in keeping, promising, and taking care of all of our needs. He knows where you are right now and will faithfully lead you to better seasons. Embrace where you are with your eyes wide open.

Favorite Lyrics

The Lord our God is ever faithful
Never changing through the ages
From this darkness
You will lead us 
And forever we will say 
You're the Lord our God 

Promise maker, promise keeper
You finish what You begin
Our provision through the desert 
You see it through ‘til the end 
You see it through ‘til the end

4. “How Great Is Our God” (World Edition) (feat. Chris Tomlin) from Passion: White Flag

Do you realize how big, and great, and powerful God is? He is the only King clothed in majesty. This song brings together so many cultures and peoples to show His amazing creations.

Favorite Lyrics

The splendor of the King
Clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice, all the earth rejoice
He wraps himself in light
And darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice, 
And trembles at His voice

3. “At The Cross” (Love Ran Red) (feat. Chris Tomlin) from Passion: Take It All

Your new life begins at the cross. Accept the gift Christ is waiting to give you and breathe in your new freedom as He walks with you.

Favorite Lyrics

At the cross
At the cross
I surrender my life.
I'm in awe of You
I'm in awe of You
Where Your love ran red
and my sin washed white.
I owe all to You
I owe all to You, Jesus.

2. “Come As You Are” (feat. Crowder) from Passion: Take It All

Have you been waiting for life to fall into place to follow Christ? Now is the perfect time. Why delay when you are hungry to be fed, to get answers, and to finally find rest?

Favorite Lyrics

There’s hope for the hopeless
And all those who’ve strayed
Come sit at the table
Come taste the grace
There’s rest for the weary
Rest that endures
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t cure

1. “Even So Come” (feat. Chris Tomlin) from Passion: Even So Come

This is the title track from the brand new Passion album! It reminds me of what the day will be like when Christ returns. No more waiting. No more pain. No more suffering. I’ll choose to wait for Him.

Favorite Lyrics

Like a bride
Waiting for her groom,
We'll be a church
Ready for You.
Every heart longing for our King,
We sing...
Even so come,
Lord Jesus come

I love how the Passion albums feature songs that help bring you to a place of intense worship. The artists continue creating music as a ministry, which is why the songs are so heart felt. Does the church you attend play any of the songs from the list above? If so, which is your favorite? If not, which one should they start playing?

I am a Christian writer and editor that lives in northern Michigan and thoroughly enjoy music, movies, TV shows, books and other entertainment with a Christian focus. My favorite song is "Oceans" by Hillsong United because it reminds me that has big plans for me and everyone else who puts their trust in Him. There are many movies that have impacted my life, but a few include God's Not Dead, The Shunning and Letters to God. When I'm not writing I enjoy watching movies and laughing with my busy toddler and husband.
