This page is a resource for discovering Christian contemporary music. Every few weeks, we will be introducing new music and videos, which will range from more traditional worship videos (videos that operate as slide shows, often with lyrics included) to official music videos, which are more polished. Whenever we are about to sing new songs in church, we’ll post them here so parishioners can learn them in advance. As the Creation Festival draws near, the attention of our youth is turning to today’s most popular Christian songs: the following videos represent the top Christian songs in America as reported by Billboard magazine for the week of May 11. We hope that you are blessed by what you see and hear!
Note: YouTube videos sometimes have little commercials in them – usually an ad that can be closed within a few seconds. (This is not part of our website, but theirs.) When a YouTube video ends, the screen suggests other related YouTube videos. We are not responsible for what you watch next, so please keep in mind that we recommend only what we share!
1. Chris Tomlin ~ Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)
Chris Tomlin continues to be one of the most sincere and affecting Christian composers of the modern age. His latest single continues to top the Christian charts and is likely to be a highlight of his live set this summer at the Creation Festival!
2. Matt Redman ~ 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)
Add up the video views for different renditions of this song, and the total is nearing 15 MILLION! We sang this song in church a couple months back and we’re overjoyed to see how successful it’s become!
3. MercyMe ~ You Are I Am
It’s taken a while (we first featured this video last year!) but MercyMe’s ode to God’s miracles – including those found in the books of Ezekiel and Daniel – has found a national audience!
4. Matthew West ~ Hello My Name Is
A very simple concept helps this video to make an instant impact. Matthew West’s latest album was just released, and this is the very first single!
5. Hawk Nelson ~ Words
This expansion on the passage from James 3 (“The Tongue”) has struck a chord in Christians across the nation. Our words are SO important! As James writes, “Be quick to listen and slow to speak,” and as Paul writes, “Speak to each other with psalms, hymns and sacred songs” (Ephesians 5:19).
