Top Hillsong - No.10

10. Who you say I am - from There is More

Identity is the buzzword of the moment. It shapes politics, ethics, culture and our social relationships. Identity is, for many, everything. That is a lot of pressure for something that can be so very slippery for many. 'Who You Say I Am' is the anthem for the age of identity. It shows how being God's creation is a firm foundation for life and the means to a more stable and secure self. All we are is who Gods made us to be, and this epic song declares just that.

Top Hillsong - No.9

9. What a Beautiful Name - from Let There Be Light

Few songs manage to capture both the power and beauty of God. The two ideas, might and refinement, seems somewhat at odds of each-other. Yet, this track manages just that. Power and beauty. Taken from the group's 2016 album Let There Be Light, what a beautiful name is a pure expression of awe at the majesty of God. It raises high Jesus' name as a beacon for all hope.

Top Hillsong - No.8

8. This I Believe (The Creed) - from No Other Name

A back-to-basics of sort. This I Believe (The Creed) reaffirms the foundations of Christianity in the way only Hillsong Worship can; with epic scale and musical swells. The song shows the power of words to bring together a Church by transforming the Apostle's Creed into a song for all Christians. Part statement of faith and part song for Churches worldwide, This I Believe will help you get back to the core of your faith with each moving chorus.

Top Hillsong - No.7

7. Hosanna - from Saviour King Live

All too often, powerful words from the Bible fall out of fashion for being too archaic or hard-to-understand. Words like Hosanna. A word of praise that contains a wealth of history and worship in its three syllables, Hosanna was the go-to word of worship throughout the Bible. Used an appeal for deliverance, it was most used when Jesus entered Jerusalem before his death. And now it is given its rightful pride-of-place in the language of praise in this moving Hillsong anthem.

Top Hillsong - No.6

6. Forever Reign - from A Beautiful Exchange

In the same vein as Hosanna, Forever Reigh sings of the unchanging goodness of God.  With child-like imagery of running into God's arms, Forever Reigh feels like the closest Hillsong Worship has come to writing a love song for God. All about safety in God's arms, the song was a welcome cry for people searching for a place to be secure. To this day, the song has lost none of its power or simplicity.

Top Hillsong - No.5

5. From the Inside Out - from Mighty To Save Live

So much worship music was about the big things God has done. From the Inside Out changed that. A deeply personal song of thanks, it sang of the vulnerabilities we all have, and God's ability to work through it all when we surrender to Him. Quiet, meditative, simple. It offered millions of people quiet moments of healing from the inner turmoils and pains. It showed God of great changes as well as small mercies that can seem just as impossible. 

Top Hillsong - No.4

4. Tell the World - from God He Reigns Live

Coming at the peak of the pop-punk music movement, Tell the World was a sing of pure energy. It proved that worship could be fun and relevant. Exciting musically, whilst still having a powerful message, Tell The World was used to fire people up. It was filled with kick-drums, guitar riffs, and thousands of people jumping up and down as they worship. It's praise, but not as people knew it back then. 

Top Hillsong - No.3

3. My Redeemer Lives - from By Your Side live

Bouncy, cheesy, and full of joy. My Redeemer Live is peak Hillsong Worship (and peak 90s!). So catchy that you knew the song back-to-front after a single listen, it's hard not to get caught up in the ebullience of the song. Equal parts victory song of Jesus' life and praise party, there is a charming unabashedness of My Redeemer Lives. The kind that had a naked King David dancing in the street and had crowds of thousands dancing like no one was watching. 

Top Hillsong - No.2

2. Mighty to Save - from Mighty to Save Live

A distillation of everything Hillsong Worship is known and loved for, Mighty to Save is both intimate and anthemic. Filled with mission and heart, it sang of God's power to fix broken people and broken nations. It showed a God bigger than imaginations, bigger than the problems we all face. Mighty to Save contained the scope few songs have matched since, and mixes that awe with shining hope. 

Top Hillsong - No.1

1. Shout to the Lord - from Shout to the Lord

Of course it's Shout to the Lord. It's the song whose stirring words reverberated across the earth. It's what made Hillsong such a household name for Christians the world over. The song's rapturous sound and deep love of God touched millions. Even today the song keeps it's robust and moving qualities. It was deeply personal to each and every Christian who heard it. Reminding them that the only response to God's power if worship. That all we can do is shout, sing, and praise.
