Here be lions


It’s that time again for us to compile our favorite Christian songs for 2018.  This year’s list is inundated with lots of worship songs from veteran acts such as Darlene Zschech, Hillsong Worship, Lauren Daigle and Lincoln Brewster.  However, never acts have not been disappointing either.  So, here’s our list:

10. I AM THEY “Scars” from “Trial and Triumph”

Few are the songs that the church needs to sing; yet one that is quintessential is the ballad “Scars.” Too often our sagacity in worship is too superficial. “Scars” is a much needed worship song as it teaches us to even thank God for our hurts: “So I’m thankful for the scars/Cause without them I wouldn’t know your heart.”

9. New Wine Worship “You Restore My Soul” from “You Restore My Soul”

“You Restore My Soul” is ambulant to the hurting soul.  Harkening us back to Psalm 23, worship leader Lauren Harris first seats our turbulent souls onto the Shepherd’s verdant grass before making His presence palatable to us.

8. Worship Central “Stir a Passion” from “Stir a Passion”

Give “Stir a Passion” a spin and within a couple of listens you will find yourself  humming. And this is one of the rare instances where we actually hear the congregation singing louder than the worship leader; a testament to the power of the song’s accessibility.
