Top 20 Worship Songs of the Past 20 Years

Worship at Redeemer

Here's Worship Leader Magazine's list. What would you change?

20. “Days of Elijah,” Robin Mark
Behold he comes
Riding on a cloud
Shining like the sun
At the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice
It’s the year of jubilee
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes

19. “Heart of Worship,” Matt Redman
When the music fades
And all is stripped away

18. “Revelation Song,” Jennie Lee Riddle
Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come
With all creation I sing
Praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything
And I will adore You

17. “He Knows My Name,” Tommy Walker
He calls me His own
He’ll never leave me
No matter where I go

16. “Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble,” Martin Smith
Fling wide your heavenly gates
Prepare the way of the risen Lord

15. “Holy Is the Lord,” Chris Tomlin, Louie Giglio
We stand and lift up our hands
For the joy of the Lord is our strength
We bow down and worship Him now
How great, how awesome is He

14. “How He Loves,” John Mark McMillan
We are his portion and he is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in his eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
So heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way…
He loves us,
Whoa! How he loves us.

13. “O Praise Him (All This for a King),” David Crowder
Turn your ear
To heaven and hear
The noise inside

12. “Breathe,” Marie Barnett
And I, I’m desperate for you
And I, I’m lost without you

11. “Everlasting God,” Brenton Brown, Ken Riley
Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord

10. “Friend of God,” Israel Houghton, Michael Gungor
Who am I that You are mindful of me?
That you hear me
When I call

9. “Majesty (Here I Am),” Stuart Garrard, Martin Smith
Your grace has found me just as I am

Empty handed, but alive in your hands

8. “In Christ Alone,” Stuart Townend, Keith Getty
In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.

7. “Open the Eyes of My Heart,” Paul Baloche
Pour out Your power and love 

As we sing holy, holy, holy

6. “Blessed Be Your Name,” Matt Redman, Beth Redman
Blessed be Your name in the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name
And blessed be Your name when I’m found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed be your name

5. “Beautiful Things,” Michael Gungor, Lisa Gungor
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

4. “Here I Am to Worship,” Tim Hughes
And I’ll never know how much it cost
to see my sin upon that cross

3. “Shout to the Lord,” Darlene Zschech
… all the earth let us sing
power and majesty, praise to the king

2. “How Great Is Our God,” Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Jesse Reeves
He wraps himself in Light,
and darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice

1. “Mighty to Save,” Reuben Morgan, Ben Fielding
He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave
