Music is my favourite thing in the whole world. I mean, next to God and friends and family. But you can find me listening to music almost all the time. But finding music that I actually enjoy listening to is sometimes difficult. So I decided to list my top 10 favourite songs and tell you something quick about why I like each one.
1. O Come to the Altar – Elevation Worship
This song is that song that kept playing on the radio. I didn’t think too much of it until my pastor played it in church. We were to sit and listen to the lyrics and pray. But as it was playing I realized what an amazing song it is and how much it means to me.
Favourite lyric: Leave behind your regrets and mistakes, Come today there’s no reason to wait, Jesus is calling
2. Scars to your Beautiful – Alessia Cara
This song is a popular one. But it’s also something that people might not realize the depth of. The whole “self-image” struggle is very real to many people I know and hearing how she sings about how beautiful you are, really moves me.
Favourite lyric: You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are, And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
3. Reckless Love – Cory Asbury
This is one of my favourite songs EVER. I listen to this song at least once a day and love it more each time. There isn’t anything that really makes me love it, it’s just the way we can experience this song and how Gods love really is going to chase you.
Favourite lyric: There’s no shadow You won’t light up, Mountain You won’t climb up, Coming after me
5. Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You – Joseph Vincent
This song is one that I heard several times in New York City. It’s originally an old song but Broadway has adopted it. It’s super simple but catchy and it seems very sweet almost. And besides, if this song was written about me I would feel very honoured.
Favourite lyric: I love you baby, Trust in me when I say
6. Beautiful Addiction – NF
This song is one that I recently heard. It’s not something that’s new or well known but it’s something that really impacted me. It is also a simple song that means a lot.
Favourite lyric: God’s now in control, I’m finally addicted to this beautiful change
7. Hallelujah Here Below – Elevation Worship
This is a new song from Elevation Worship. It touched me when I first listened to it and I’ve been listening to it a lot. It’s a passionate but quiet song that tends to make me cry.
Favourite lyric: Ten thousand angels surround Your throne, To bring You praise that will never cease, But hallelujah from here below
8. Scars – TobyMac
This is also a new song. It’s an upbeat song with no less emotion than any slower ones. I think it really touched me because it specifies that no one is alone.
Favourite lyric: It doesn’t matter who you are, This world gon’ leave some battle scars
9. Ever Be – Bethel Music
A classic worship song that my church sings most Sunday’s. It’s something that I keep being reminded about that we should always be singing God’s praises.
Favourite lyric: Your praise will ever be on my lips, ever be on my lips
10. With You – Tyler Shaw
This is also a popular song. I first heard it while I was shopping and then it became one of my friend’s phone ring. But something that really made me think was that unlike a lot of songs now it ends happily. It’s about his wife, how they met, and how much he loves her.
Favourite lyric: Now you’re here as my wife, Remember how you met me, Two hearts on a cold street
