Below are the top 10 Christian songs of all time that your praise team can use.

Top 3 Best Worship Songs of All Time

Worship songs refer to music that honors God for who He is, describing His character and attributes. These are the three most popular worship songs of all time that reminds the church of the God they serve:

1. “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)” by Matt Redman and Passion

This song describes how there are more than enough reasons for us to worship God, and it names many of the reasons in its multiple verses. It's also ideal for large crowds, as the song is slow and easy to learn.

Lyrics include: “Bless the Lord, oh my soul, oh my soul. Worship His holy name. Sing like never before, oh my soul. I worship Your holy name. The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning. It's time to sing Your song again. Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me, let me be singing when the evening comes.”

“You're rich in love and You're slow to anger. Your name is great and Your heart is kind. For all Your goodness, I will keep on singing. 10,000 reasons for my heart to find. And on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my time has come. Still my soul will sing Your praise unending. 10,000 years and then forevermore.”

2. “Cornerstone” by Hillsong Worship

Hillsong Worship is arguably one of the most well-known Christian worship groups. The band has given us more than a handful of excellent songs like “Cornerstone” – an anthem emphasizing God’s sovereignty and glory.

Lyrics include: “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness. And I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly trust in Jesus' name…Christ alone, cornerstone. Weak made strong in the Savior's love. Through the storm, He is Lord, Lord of all.”

“His oath, His covenant, His blood support me in the 'whelming flood. When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay…When He shall come with trumpet sound, oh, may I then in Him be found. Dressed in His righteousness alone. Faultless, stand before the throne.”

3. “What a Beautiful Name” by Hillsong Worship

Hillsong Worship also gave us the song "What a Beautiful Name," which talks about all the goodness and grace God has showered upon us. It also expounds on God's character and how Christians should respond in great worship and gratefulness.

Lyrics include: “You were the Word at the beginning, one with God the Lord Most High. Your hidden glory in creation now revealed in You our Christ. What a beautiful name it is, what a beautiful name it is, the name of Jesus Christ my King. What a beautiful name it is, nothing compares to this. What a beautiful name it is, the name of Jesus.”

“Death could not hold You, the veil tore before You. You silenced the boast of sin and grave. The heavens are roaring, the praise of Your glory, for You are raised to life again. You have no rival. You have no equal. Now and forever, God You reign. Yours is the kingdom, Yours is the glory, Yours is the name above all names.”

Top 3 Best Praise Songs

Praise songs focus on celebrating God for what He has done, so the church can appreciate the blessings, guidance, wisdom, and unending love that He showers on His people. Moreover, these songs are easy to learn, have a clear message, and fit the taste of all ages. Consider this list of high-praise songs to get the church singing in no time:

1. “Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone)” by Chris Tomlin

Chris Tomlin gives us a twist on the classic gospel song “Amazing Grace”, empowering both young and old church people to find insight and inspiration in God’s grace. The song talks about how God came to save everybody from eternal death, so Christians may find everlasting life with Him.

Lyrics include: “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I'm found. Was blind, but now I see. 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved. How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed.”

“My chains are gone, I've been set free. My God, my Savior has ransomed me. And like a flood His mercy reigns. Unending love; amazing grace. The earth shall soon dissolve like snow, the sun forbear to shine. But God, who called me here below, will be forever mine.”

2. “This is Amazing Grace” by Phil Wickham

Another praise song about grace is "This is Amazing Grace" by Phil Wickham. While the premise is similar to the earlier piece, this one is more lively and can get the congregation jumping. The song talks about how powerful God is, reminds us of everything He's done, and encourages all to respond in praise.

Lyrics include: “Who breaks the power of sin and darkness? Whose love is mighty and so much stronger? The King of glory, the King above all kings. Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder? And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder? The King of glory, the King above all kings.”

“This is amazing grace; this is unfailing love. That You would take my place, that You would bear my cross. You laid down Your life that I would be set free. Oh, Jesus, I sing for all that You've done for me.”

3. “Mighty to Save” by Hillsong Worship

We all have probably attended one of Hillsong Worship's concerts where they blasted this song in full volume, with everybody turning on their flashlights for the bridge. "Mighty to Save" is an iconic song about how God is mighty enough to save all souls.

Lyrics include: “Savior, He can move the mountains. My God is mighty to save, He is mighty to save. Forever, author of Salvation. He rose and conquered the grave, Jesus conquered the grave. So take me as You find me, all my fears and failures, fill my life again. I give my life to follow everything I believe in. And now I surrender.”

“Shine Your light and let the whole world see. We're singing for the glory of the risen King, Jesus. Shine Your light and let the whole world see. We're singing for the glory of the risen King.”

Praise and Worship Songs for God’s People

Music is a powerful force that can influence our emotions and mood. Worship songs are particularly impactful as they are focused on God and His goodness. When we sing these songs, we are reminded of who God is and what He has done for us. Doing so increases our faith and hope in Him, just like what David and Solomon experienced after writing the songs in the Psalms and Song of Solomon.

As Scripture tells us, “Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise His name; proclaim His salvation day after day. Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise…Strength and glory are in His sanctuary.” (Psalm 96:1-6).
