Top 10 Tenth Avenue North Songs Of All Time

Tenth Avenue North was formed in 2000 when original band members Mike Donehey, Jason Jamison and Brian Homan started playing in their dorm room. They produced three albums before landing a recording contract with Reunion Records, so they had to work hard to raise funds the first few years. Their first album Over and Underneath was released in 2008 and they are working on releasing their fourth album Cathedrals this coming November. The band has toured with many other Christian artists, including David Crowder Band, Casting Crowns and MercyMe.

Here are the top 10 Tenth Avenue North songs of all time:

#10. “Strong Enough to Save” from The Light Meets the Dark

Favorite Lyrics

now is not too late
lift up your head
let the rain fall on your face
you’re not far from grace
your not too far from grace

#9. “Times” from Over and Underneath

Favorite Lyrics

I hear You say
My love is over
It’s underneath
It’s inside
It’s in between
The times that you doubt me
When you can’t feel
The times that you question
Is this for real
The times you’re broken
The times that you mend
The times you hate me
And the times that you bend

#8. “Hold My Heart” from Over and Underneath

Favorite Lyrics

One tear in the driving rain,
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart?
One life, that’s all I am
Right now I can barely stand
If You’re everything You say You are
Would You come close and hold my heart

#7. “Love Is Here” from Over and Underneath

Favorite Lyrics

Love is here
Love is now
Love is pouring from His hands
From His brow
Love is near
It satisfies
Streams of mercy flowing from His side
‘Cause love is here

#6. “No Man Is an Island” from Islands – EP

Favorite Lyrics

No man is an island, we can be found
No man is an island, let your guard down
You don’t have to fight me, I am for you
We’re not meant to live this life alone

#5. “Losing” from The Struggle

Favorite Lyrics

I can't believe what she said
I can't believe what he did
Oh, don't they know it's wrong, yeah?
Don't they know it's wrong, yeah?
Maybe there's something I missed
But how could they treat me like this?
It's wearing out my heart
The way they disregard

#4. “Healing Begins” from The Light Meets the Dark

Favorite Lyrics

This is where the healing begins, oh 
This is where the healing starts 
When you come to where you're broken within 
The light meets the dark 
The light meets the dark 

#3. “You Are More” from The Light Meets the Dark

Favorite Lyrics

You are more than the choices that you've made, 
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes, 
You are more than the problems you create, 
You've been remade. 

#2. “Worn” from The Struggle

Favorite Lyrics

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
That’s frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause I’m worn

#1. “By Your Side” from Over and Underneath

Favorite Lyrics

Here at my side wherever you fall
In the dead of night whenever you call
And please don't fight these hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you 

'Cause I, I love you
I want you to know
That I, yeah I'll love you
I'll never let you go, no, no

I love so many songs by Tenth Avenue North and appreciate how they show their faith and give glory to God. They have won three GMA Dove Awards, including “New Artist of the Year” in 2009, “Song of the Year” in 2010 for “By Your Side” and “Short Form Music Video of the Year” in 2012 for “You Are More”. They are also strong supporters of Compassion International and are passionate about supporting the mission of helping children around the world. If you have not been to a Tenth Avenue North concert you have many opportunities now through November with 30 tour dates announced all over the United States with the From Islands to Cathedrals Tour starting in October.

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. I also write for and love connecting with readers, so please don't hesitate to contact me! When I'm not writing I enjoy watching movies and laughing with my busy toddler and husband.
