I thought it would be nice to have a thread to share your favourite Christian worship and praise songs. I had Joanne in mind for making this thread and would hope that some of the older Christian music I grew up listening to would be beneficial to her and to others. I'm personally very passionate about music as some of you know and I find that I connect to God through worshipping and praising him through songs. I hope that some of you will not be shy in sharing some of your favourite songs in hopes of touching others. I'll probably share the most songs at first that I grew up listening to as a child. I hope some of you will like them. A lot of them are from the 80's and early 90's. Here is just a few to start. I will add only a couple a day.

I will start with Benny Hester songs as they really speak to me and hit home. I can really relate to most of his songs. They have helped me in some of my most darkest hours of my life. I will admit, some of these songs make me cry real hard, it's like God reaching in and touching your very soul....

Now this thread is strictly for Christian songs only. If you want to share your religious music, you need to create your own separate thread for that, thank you.

Hashem Melech original version


Hashem Melech 2.0


=====
This is unrelated with (Judeo-)Christian songs.

But, it is very interesting that the melody of the first video ("Hashem Melech original version") is VERY similar with this video:

You are in "love and hate" relationship with Christianity?

Tanya, I asked God what I should search for and the phrase came to my mind - the struggle.


TENTH AVENUE NORTH LYRICS
"The Struggle"

There's a wreckage, there's a fire
There's a weakness in my love
There's a hunger I can't control
Lord, I falter and I fall down
Then I hold on to chains You broke
When You came and saved my soul. Save my soul

Hallelujah
We are free to struggle
We're not struggling to be free
Your blood bought and makes us children
Children, drop your chains and sing

So, why, Lord, do I still fail,
Do I wear thin?
Why do I still give in to temptation?
On my own, I am bankrupt,
I don't trust You or take You at Your word
What You've promised, yeah.

Hallelujah
We are free to struggle
We're not struggling to be free
Your blood bought and makes us children
Children, drop your chains and sing

Hallelujah,
Death is overcome and we are breathing
Hallelujah,
Our stone hearts become flesh that's beating
Hallelujah,
Chains have been undone and we are singing
Hallelujah,
The fire has begun. Can you feel it?

Hallelujah,
Death is overcome and we are breathing
Hallelujah,
Our stone hearts become flesh that's beating
Hallelujah,
Chains have been undone and we are singing
Hallelujah,
The fire has begun. Oh, can you feel it?

Hallelujah


We are free to struggle
We're not struggling to be free
Your blood bought and makes us children
Children, drop your chains and sing

I hear your hollow laughter
your sighs of secret pain
pretending and inventing
just to hide your shame
plastic smiles and faces
blinkin' back the tears
empty friends and places
all magnify your fears

If you're tired and weary
weak and heavy laden
I can understand how
it feels to be alone
I will take your burden
if you'll let Me love you
wrap My arms around you
give your heart a home

It hurts to watch you struggle
and try so hard to win
but trade your precious birth rite
for candy coated sin
wasting priceless moments
restless and confused
building up defenses
for fear that you'll be used

If you're tired and weary
weak and heavy laden
I can understand how
it feels to be alone
I will take your burden
if you'll let Me love you
wrap My arms around you
give your heart a home

Take My yolk upon you
and walk here by My side
let Me heal your heartaches
and dry the tears you've cried
never will I leave you
never turn away
keep you through the darkness
lead you through the day

If you're tired and weary
weak and heavy laden
I can understand how
it feels to be alone
I will take your burden
if you'll let Me love you
wrap My arms around you
give your heart a home
wrap My arms around you
give your heart a home


Like a king who hides in shadows while a thief usurps his throne
You stumbled down through all your days without direction.
While the soldiers and the servants who should be at your command
Are all abandoned to surrender and defection.

As the kingdom groans beneath the load,
Your feet go running down the road
In panic you've forgotten all I've told you.
If you'll just call you'd see Me there
At the very instant of your prayer
But you've bought a bill of goods the liar's sold you.

Chorus

I have chosen you
There's no need to run away.
I have chosen you
Why do you doubt the words I say.
Through it all I've been right by your side.
Ask me and you will not be denied.

Like a slave who wears the collar of a hard and cruel man
And is convinced that he deserves the treatment given.
Tortured to believing nothing's ever going to change
Till you've forgotten there was ever more to living.

But as you struggle with your load
The messengers come down the road
And the slaver flees in fear as he beholds them.
They break your chains and set you free
To stand amazed in liberty
And at last they give the word that God has told them.

Chorus

I have chosen you
And I will not turn you down,
I have chosen you
You were born to wear a crown.
I'll give you what you need to carry on
Till all that stands opposed to you is gone.

I have chosen you
And I will not turn you down,
I have chosen you
You were born to wear a crown.
Through it all I've been right by your side.
Ask me now, you will not be denied.

Ask me now, you will not be denied.
Ask me now, you will not be denied.


Crowds were in the streets that day
When Jesus came to town
All the synagogue was there
And more from miles around

So I asked Him home to dinner
So I could see what I could see
Of this famous local Prophet
From here in Galilee

And I don't know just how that woman
Got into the room
But you couldn't miss her gaudy clothes
And her strong and sweet perfume

She went straight to Jesus' feet
And stopped and stood right there
And then cried and wet His feet with tears
And dried them with her hair

Now of all the women in my town
None was more well known
For the flagrant scent she'd left them
And the wickedness she'd sown

But He didn't move to stop her
It seemed this Prophet couldn't tell
That the woman who was touching Him
Was the kind they buy and sell

And I had no idea just what this Jesus planned to do
When He said Simon, there's somethin' I need to say to you
So I said, Teacher, if it's on Your mind then tell me what you will
But as He began to speak to me, the room grew quickly still

He said, take a good look at this woman now
In spite of all her fears,
She's kissed me, and anointed me
And washed my feet with tears

She's honored me
And you've been only rude to me instead
You gave no kiss of greeting
And no anointing for my head

And her sins were red as scarlet
But now they're washed away
The love and faith she'd shown
Is the price she has to pay

For the depth of God's forgiveness
It's more than you can see
And in spite of what you think of her
She's beautiful to me

Well my anger flamed to hatred
I wanted nothing more
Than to take this Prophet by the throat
And throw Him out the door

To act like God, forgiving sins
And then speak so to me
As itinerant from Nazareth
And backwards Galilee

But instead I sat and trembled
Shaken to the core,
The woman still was weeping
As she knelt there on the floor

Jesus turned to her
Said your chains have been released
Your faith has saved you from your sins
Rise and walk in peace

Your sins were red as scarlet
But now they're washed away
The love and faith you've shown
Is all the price you have to pay

For the depth of God's forgiveness
It's deeper than the sea
And no matter what the world may think
You're beautiful to me

Your sins were red as scarlet
But now they're washed away
The love and faith you've shown
Is all the price you have to pay

For the depth of God's forgiveness
It's deeper than the sea
And no matter what the world may think
You're beautiful to me

Your sins were red as scarlet
But now they're washed away
The love and faith you've shown
Is all the price you have to pay

For the depth of God's forgiveness
It's deeper than the sea
And no matter what the world may think
You're beautiful to me


Not to win, not to fight
Not for profit, or to prove that I'm right
Not for show, no facade
Sackcloth and ashes alone aren't accepted by God
But to give, and to unlock the doors
To take from my hand and to place it in yours
To break every yoke and to cut loose the chains
To give clothes to the naked, and a roof from the rain

Not to steal, or demand what is due
Not to lie, and pretend that it's true
Not to speak, nor to do as I please
Not to harden my heart to the dying and to live at my ease
But to give You my life without keeping a part
To return to my God and repent with my heart
To throw open the door to the One locked outside
Then to worship the King without falseness or pride

Then Your light will arise and break through like the sun
And Your righteousness shine when obedience is done
Guarded by God and led forth by the Lamb
When you cry out with your voice, He will say, "Here I am!"

Not to win, not to fight
Not for profit, or to prove that I'm right
Not for show, no facade
Sackcloth and ashes alone aren't accepted by God


There is strength for your weakness
Freedom for your chains
Healin' for your bruises
Peace for your pain
There's reward for your labor
Release when you're bound
Give it all to Jesus, let Him
Turn it around

Heart like a stone, all your fears locked deep inside
So all alone, never show the tears you've cried
You can't admit your weakness in a world so full of pride
But the emptiness you feel can't be denied

There is strength for your weakness
Freedom for your chains
Healin' for your bruises
Peace for your pain
There's reward for your labor
Release when you're bound
Give it all to Jesus, let Him
Turn it around

Why do you stay when it only brings you down
There is a way if you'll only turn around
You can trade all of your failures for a love that never ends
You can give up all your heartaches for a friend (He's got)

"Just Be Held"

Hold it all together
Everybody needs you strong
But life hits you out of nowhere
And barely leaves you holding on

And when you're tired of fighting
Chained by your control
There's freedom in surrender
Lay it down and let it go

So when you're on your knees and answers seem so far away
You're not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your world's not falling apart, it's falling into place
I'm on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just be held, just be held

If your eyes are on the storm
You'll wonder if I love you still
But if your eyes are on the cross
You'll know I always have and I always will

And not a tear is wasted
In time, you'll understand
I'm painting beauty with the ashes
Your life is in My hands

So when you're on your knees and answers seem so far away
You're not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your worlds not falling apart, its falling into place
I'm on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just be held, just be held

Lift your hands, lift your eyes
In the storm is where you'll find Me
And where you are, I'll hold your heart
I'll hold your heart
Come to Me, find your rest
In the arms of the God who won't let go

So when you're on your knees and answers seem so far away
You're not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your worlds not falling apart, its falling into place
I'm on the throne, stop holding on and just be held (stop holding on and just be held)
Just be held, just be held, just be held, just be held

"Flawless"

There’s got to be more
Than going back and forth
From doing right to doing wrong
‘Cause we were taught that’s who we are
Come on get in line right behind me
You along with everybody
Thinking there’s worth in what you do

Then Like a hero who takes the stage when
We’re on the edge of our seats saying it’s too late
Well let me introduce you to amazing grace

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

Could it possibly be
That we simply can’t believe
That this unconditional
Kind of love would be enough
To take a filthy wretch like this
And wrap him up in righteousness
But that’s exactly what He did

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

Take a breath smile and say
Right here right now I’m ok
Because the cross was enough

Then Like a hero who takes the stage when
We’re on the edge of our seats saying it’s too late
Well let me introduce you to grace grace
God’s grace

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

No matter what they say
Or what you think you are
The day you called His name
He made you flawless
He made you flawless

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

"Trust In You"

Letting go of every single dream
I lay each one down at Your feet
Every moment of my wandering
Never changes what You see

I've tried to win this war I confess
My hands are weary I need Your rest
Mighty Warrior, King of the fight
No matter what I face, You're by my side

When You don't move the mountains I'm needing You to move
When You don't part the waters I wish I could walk through
When You don't give the answers as I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You!

Truth is, You know what tomorrow brings
There's not a day ahead You have not seen
So, in all things be my life and breath
I want what You want Lord and nothing less

When You don't move the mountains I'm needing You to move
When You don't part the waters I wish I could walk through
When You don't give the answers as I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You!

I will trust in You!
You are my strength and comfort
You are my steady hand
You are my firm foundation; the rock on which I stand

Your ways are always higher
Your plans are always good
There's not a place where I'll go, You've not already stood

When You don't move the mountains I'm needing You to move
When You don't part the waters I wish I could walk through
When You don't give the answers as I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You!

I will trust in You!
I will trust in You!
I will trust in You!
