Worship & Song
During Lent, our church will be holding a March Madness tournament featuring 64 Christian hymns and songs. The winner will be named on Easter Sunday. While preparing this year’s tournament entries, we were particularly interested in the endurance of some songs over time, especially those that written before even our oldest member was born.
All of these songs ~ even “Amazing Grace” ~ were once new and unfamiliar. Some of the more recent Christian songs to catch on have been “Oceans” and “10,000 Reasons.” Each of these appears on Billboard‘s list of the decade’s top worship songs and is a congregational favorite. What song will be the next to endure? On this page we’ve chosen some of the best new Christian music of 2020. We hope you enjoy our selections!
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 video ends, the screen suggests other related videos. Please keep in mind that we recommend only what we share!
Cory Asbury ~ The Father’s House
It’s still very early, but we’re always looking for great songs to sing on Father’s Day! This brand new track from Cory Asbury (“Reckless Love”) is a contender, especially as it turns into a gospel track in the finale.
Steffany Gretzinger / John Wild / Jesus Alive Choir ~ Way Maker
“Way Maker” was written by Sinach and popularized by Leeland. Now it’s been covered by the Jesus Alive Choir in what may be the definitive version. Yes, we know it’s half an hour long! But it’s quite a blessing ~ you’ll have to hear it to believe it!
David & Nicole Binion feat. Steffany Gretzinger ~ Living Proof
Yes, it’s Steffany again! What a great season she’s having. The album version (from Glory of Eden, release date February 21) is five minutes long, but this worshipful offering extends the praise and culminates in “Nothing But the Blood.”
Harvest ~ Rest On Us
This understated gem remembers the Holy Spirit moving over the face of the water and prays, “rest on us.” The track is taken from the album There In the Middle, released January 21.
