Some songs I don’t ever want to get out of my head. They’re my forever favorites. Most hold a special memory for me. If I happen to hear them on the radio, I will wait until the song is finished before leaving the room or getting out of the vehicle. They mean that much to me.
I would like to share them with you. My forever favorites a few at a time. We’ll start with some songs you probably all know. But not too recent as I need time to ensure they will be forever favorites!

In no particular order, here are 10 Christian songs I never grow tired of:
1. “Rescue” by Desperation Band
♪♫ I need you, Jesus, to come to my rescue. ♪♫
♪♫ No one else will do. ♪♫
♪♫ Capture me with grace…This world has nothing for me. ♪♫
Love this song! No one else will do. Wish we sang this more in church.
2. “Never Let Go” by Matt Redman
♪♫ I can see a Light that is coming for the heart that holds on and there will be an end to these troubles, but until that day comes, still I will praise You! ♪♫
To be fair, I also like David Crowder’s song of the same name. Make no mistake, they are different songs entirely. I can’t sit still when hearing this one and I LOVE when he adds ♪♫ You keep on loving and You never let go! ♪♫ during one of the choruses (around 2:30). Makes the whole song for me.
3. “How He Loves Us” by David Crowder Band
♪♫ And I realize just how beautiful You are and how Your affections are for me. ♪♫
Like most songs over-played on the radio, I really fought this one. My sister blessed me with a cd after I delivered my son stillborn and this was on it (along with both Never Let Go songs). I would play this on repeat over and over and was able to find some comfort as you cannot deny any of these lyrics. This song was there when I needed it most and will always have a special place in my heart as a result.
On a side note: I LOVED seeing the YouTube video of the child in the car belting out this tune. (especially around 1:02 if you take a peek) The artist on that video is John Mark McMillon who I believe originated this masterpiece.
4. “Peace With You” by Ten Sheckel Shirt
This song speaks for itself. And was released when I was finally able to proclaim the same:
♪♫ It’s nice to be at peace with You. ♪♫
So bummed I couldn’t find an audio to link to this one! It’s a great song. Feel free to download it here. Song 7.
5. “My Desire” by Jeremy Camp
There are a few songs on this album I enjoy, but this one gets my hands in the air every time.
♪♫ This is my desire to be used by You…So I give my hands to be used by You ♪♫
6. “I Can Only Imagine” by Mercy Me
Now, who would I be if I didn’t include this classic. We all know it and I still love it. Can YOU imagine what it will be like?!?
7. “Worlds Apart” by Jars of Clay
Love.This.Song. It speaks for itself. Have you ever sat down and read the lyrics? Please do.
8. “Faithful to Me (Reprise)” by Jennifer Knapp
When this album was released it quickly became my favorite cd. Nearly 14 years later, I can still sit down and listen to it in its entirety.
I may not be too happy about her current lifestyle choices, but two things are certain: God is Faithful
and I still sing this song in the shower.
9. “While I’m Waiting” by Jon Waller
♪♫ I’ll be taking every step in obedience. And while I’m waiting I will serve you….worship…run the race. ♪♫
This song is really helping me get through some dry seasons lately. I haven’t seen the movie this song is in “Fireproof.” Have you? I’m worried it will take away the place this song brings me to when I hear it.
Have a listen HERE. Please worship while you’re at it!
10. Last but not at all least: “If You Want Me To” by Ginny Owens
I always have a song running through my head. And 7 times out of 10, it’s this song. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, Ginny adds another verse which brings me to my knees every time.
♪♫ So when I cross over Jordan I’m gonna sing and I’m gonna shout ♪♫
I’m gonna look into your eyes and say
♪♫ ‘You never let me down.’ ♪♫
♪♫ So take me on the pathway that leads me HOME to You
and I will walk through the valley if You want me to. ♪♫
I sing this song All.The.Time.
So much so that when my oldest started to speak more clearly, we discovered he was able to sing this song in its entirety. I pray he knows I always want to do what God wants me to do. Even when it hurts.
What are some of your forever favorites? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
