The best worship songs of all time

There are a lot of worship songs out there, but this is a list of some of The Best Worship Songs of all Time, in no particular order. (At least for now)

Christian worship

Christian worship is the act of attributing reverent honor and homage to God. Jesus in John 4:23-24 teaches that we should worship God in spirit and in truth. So without wasting any more time, this is a list of some of The Best Worship Songs of all Time in no particular order.

1. Ekwueme by Prospa Ochimana Feat Osinachi Nwachukwu

This powerful song was released in 2017 and has had over 76 million streams. It is sung in both English and Igbo. Ekwueme is an Igbo word which means “The One who says and does” The song speaks of the awesome might of God and makes try to paint a picture of how omnipotent God is. Sadly, Osinachi lost her life on April 8th, 2022, aged 42. Her cause of death is alleged domestic violence suffered at the hands of her husband. No description can do this song justice, so check it out and tell me what you think.

2. Jireh by Elevation Worship & Maverick City Music Lyrics

“Jireh” is the lead single from Elevation WorshipMaverick City Music‘s collaborative album titled “Old Church Basement”. The song premiered on March 26, 2021, accompanied by its music video.

This song speaks of the love God has for his people. A love that is more than enough to sustain us in every circumstance we might find ourselves in. Jireh is one of the many names for God and it means “God will provide” If God, who is Jehovah Jireh, dresses the lilies with so much beauty and splendour, how much more will he clothe, feed, provide for you?

3. Hills and valleys by Tauren Wells

In This song, Tauren Wells celebrates God’s sovereignty over all of creation. He says “On the mountains, I will bow my life To the One who set me there
In the valley, I will lift my eyes To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own, when I’m walking through the valley, I know I am not alone! You’re God of the hi-hi-hills and valleys And I am not alone” At our highs, we should remember that God got us there and at our lows, He is there with us.

4. All that matters by Minister GUC

All that matters is a song by Nigerian gospel artist Gift Ugochi Christopher ‘GUC’ who goes by the stage name Minister GUC. 

In all that matters, Minister GUC praises God, telling Him He is all that matters, and acknowledges that His life would be meaningless without God.

5. 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) by Matt Redman

Matt Redman urges his soul to bless and worship the Lord’s Holy name – to sing praises to the Lord like never before. 

When the sun comes up and a new day dawns, we should sing God’s praises. We should praise God who is rich in love and slow to anger. Whose name is great and who is kind. Let us make a commitment to still be singing God’s praises on the day our strength failing and our time has come. 

This song more that deserves a place in my list of The Best Worship Songs of all Time.

This beautiful song by Meredith Andrews is drawn from Hebrews 13:5-6 “Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said,” I will never leave you nor forsake you.””

It is a celebration of God’s promise to never leave nor forsake us. After all, God is only good and constant and will not change. Not for a moment.

Released in 1994, shout to the lord by Darlene Zschech is one of the most popular praise and worship songs of the 90’s. Darlene Zschech wrote this song at a time when she was struggling with financial worries and the stresses of raising a young family.

How Great Thou Art is based on the original Swedish hymn “O Store Gud” written by Carl Boberg in 1885. It was loosely translated into English by Stuart K. Hine

The hymn was popularised by George Beverly Shea and Cliff Barrows during the Billy Graham crusades. The first two stanzas marvel at the wonder which is God’s creation. Stanzas 3 and 4 talk of how great God’s love for us is. A love that was so strong that He sent Jesus to come at be the atonement for our sins. We shall proclaim “how great thou art” when He comes again.

Amazing Grace” is probably the most popular hymn ever written. It was written in 1772 by English poet, John Newton (1725–1807). It is primarily a religious song but is also widely used secularly.  While the words of the hymn are deeply moving, the story of the life of the author makes it more fascinating and inspiring.

The words of this amazing song are from Psalm 34 from verse 4. The psalmist celebrates God’s graciousness in dealings with him, then calls on others to trust in the Lord as he has done. He instructs them on how to secure graciousness and then contrasts God’s care of His people and His punitive providence towards the wicked.
