5. Words, Hawk Nelson ft. Bart Millard

Favorite Lyric – “Words can build you up. Words can break you down. Start a fire in your heart or put it out. Let my words be life. Let my words be truth. I don’t wanna say a word unless it points the world back to You.”

4. Hello, My Name Is, Matthew West

Favorite Lyric – “These are the voices. These are the lies. And I have believed them for the very last time. Hello, my name is child of the One true King. I’ve been saved, I’ve been changed, and I have been set free. Amazing grace is the song I sing. Hello, my name is child of the One true King.”

"The Truth" (2 Corinthians 5:17) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

3. One Thing Remains, Passion ft. Kristian Stanfill

Favorite Lyric – “In death. In life. I'm confident and covered by the power of Your great love. My debt is paid. There's nothing that can separate my heart from Your great love.”

2. Whom Shall I Fear, Chris Tomlin

Favorite Lyric – “You crush the enemy underneath my feet. You are my Sword and Shield. Though troubles linger still, whom Shall I Fear? I know who goes before me. I know who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side. The One who reigns forever, He is a friend of mine. The God of angel armies is always by my side.”

1. My God, Jeremy Camp

Favorite Lyric – “My God, You are the unchanging love. My God, Your heart sends hope from above. The Great Creator, Beautiful Savior. I've been redeemed. There is life now from Your victory. You are my God (You are my God).”

Bonus Lyric – “There is no other one who's given a greater love, laying aside His own life on the cross, reaching out to us.”
