My Top 3 Worship Songs for January 2018

I want to try and start doing monthly favorites with everyone. These posts will be very laid back and casual, but I know that I love when other people share songs they love with me, so I figured this would be a fun way to open up some conversation within the community. I hope you enjoy!

1.) Sovereign God ~ Skyhook. So the first song I wanted to share with you is by a band that is not as widely known as you’d expect. The band itself is a Christian Rock band, who have a separate genre strictly dedicated to worship. This song is amazing and I highly suggest taking a look at it! It is from their worship album “Pneuma: A Worship Project”. (Fun fact, the word Pneuma [πνεῦμα] is an ancient Greek word for “breath”, and in a religious context for “spirit” or “soul”.) The song I want to emphasize today is called “Sovereign God”. Ill leave a link to the song on YouTube down below along with the lyrics to the song.

“Sovereign God, we are here.
We won’t leave until your glory fills the air.
Sovereign God we draw near.

We will wait until your voice falls on our ears.
Revive our hearts, renew our minds.
Your words ignite, our lives, our lives.
Sovereign God we are here.
We won’t leave until your glory fills the air.
Sovereign God we draw near, we will wait until your voice falls on our ears.
Revive our hearts, renew our minds.
Your words ignite, our lives, our lives.

Sovereign God hear our cries all our hopes and all our dreams are in your eyes.
Face to face we will rise.
We will lift the name of God on high.
Oooh-oooh-oooh-oooh Revive our hearts, Renew our minds.
Your words ignite, our lives, our lives.
Soverign God we are here.

We won’t leave until your glory fills the air.
Sovereign god we draw near.
We will wait until your voice falls on our ears.
Oooh-oooh-ooh-ooh-ohh-oooh-ohh-ooh-ooh-oh-ooh-ooh-ooh.”

2.) Reckless Love ~ Bethel Worship. Bethel is a pretty well known worship group, but in case you weren’t familiar with them, here is a little information. They are an American worship band that began with Bethel Church locatied in California. They have many worship albums and I happen to love a good majority of their songs. This song in particular is so powerful and it was introduced to me while I was at a young adults fellowship and worship night. This song truly brought me to tears when it was playing, and the lyrics are moving. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.

 

Before I spoke a word
You were singing over me
You have been so, so
Good to me
Before I took a breath
You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so
Kind to me
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it
I don’t deserve it
Still You give yourself away

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

When I was your foe, still Your love fought for me
You have been so, so
Good to me

When I felt no worth
You paid it all for me
You have been so, so
Kind to me

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it
I don’t deserve it
Still You give yourself away

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up

Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
No lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it
I don’t deserve it
Still You give yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God”

Reckless Love by Bethel Worship

3.) Thank you Jesus ~ Hillsong Worship. Hillsong is a worldwide known worship group, singing in churches across the globe. The song I really wanted to share with you all is a song about complete gratitude and thankfulness to the Lord for all that He has done. And even though there aren’t that many lyrics, every word is powerful and the Holy Spirit really moves through this song.What an incredible way to sing praise!!

“Grace that flows like a river
Washing over me
Fount of heaven, love of Christ
Overflow in me

Thank You, Jesus
You set me free
Christ my Saviour
You rescued me

Take this life delivered
A vessel of Your love
Wholly now devoted
To see Your kingdom come

Thank You, Jesus
You set me free
Christ my Savior
You rescued me x2
You’ve given me life
You’ve opened my eyes
I love You, Lord
I love You, Lord
You’ve entered my heart
You’ve set me apart
I love You, Lord
I love You, Lord x4
Thank You, Jesus
You set me free
Christ my Savior
You rescued me x2″

Thank You Jesus by Hillsong Worship

I pray you all enjoy this type of post. I know it is quite different from the way the blog posts usually are, but again, I really wanted to share some worship songs with you! I often add songs into my blogs when they coincide with the topic, but I think there should be something separate. If you have any songs you would like to suggest, please let me know! I love hearing new music, especially worship. I also would like to ask what you all think about blog posts like this once a month? Do you prefer to see more posts like this or did you rather the other blogs? Maybe both? I pray you all have a blessed day and that the Lord speaks to each of you through the songs in a personal and individual way. God bless!
