Our 20 Favorite Songs about Jesus
Before we look at some of our favorite Jesus songs for praise and worship, let us consider why we worship in the first place. We worship to show our gratitude for God for who he is, to magnify him, and to give appreciation to Jesus for what he has done. We come to worship in order to express our gratitude to God the Father and Jesus for everything he has done for us. We worship in order to come closer to the living God and to spend more time in his presence with him. We worship in order to have a taste of Heaven on earth.
In praise hymns, the sacrifice of Jesus and the gift of redemption that God provided through him are two of the most frequently encountered topics.
We honor the One who taught us how to live, who never sinned but bore the sins of the entire world upon his shoulders.
According to John 3:16, “For God so loved the world,” God sacrificed his only Son, “so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” The Bible says in John 3:16 For your convenience, we’ve produced a list of Our 20 Favorite Jesus Songs to serve as a reminder of who Jesus is and what he’s done for us.
How intense the agony of a piercing loss.

What are the 10 best songs about Jesus?
Hmv London; November 12, 2013
My chocolate HobNobs have been devoured in one sitting, much like the Phoenix from the tale of the same name. hmv.com’s editor in chief “Why should the Devil get all the greatest tunes?” says a phrase that is frequently credited to the founder of the Salvation Army, William Booth. Booth was not present to hear songs such as The Rolling Stones’ ‘Sympathy for the Devil,’ but it is unlikely that his view would have changed even if he had been present. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that songs about Jesus are typically performed by CountryWestern artists or ‘Christian Rock’ bands, respectively.
In theory, you can find them if you look hard enough.
10. Jesus Is Just Alright
The Doobie Brothers’ rendition of the song, which was originally penned by Arthur Reid Reynolds and earlier performed by The Byrds, became a hit for the California band in 1973. The song is the first to be released on their second studio album, Toulouse Street, and while the title isn’t exactly a hard sell to the big guy, the tune is nevertheless a stomper all the same.
9. If Jesus Drove a Motor Home
There are lots of Jim White songs to select from, and this one from his 2004 album Drill a Hole in That Substrate and Tell Me What You See is a good example of how the subject of religion may be explored via lyrics.
White re-imagines Jesus as a Winnebago-driving hippie who has come to town to dine at waffle shops and listen to live music. Regardless of whether you listen to Bob Dylan tapes, the song’s theme of putting religious differences aside is a durable and vital one.
8. Shine On Sweet Jesus
In a Priest Driven Ambulance (With Silver Sunshine Stares), the fourth studio album by The Flaming Lips, was released in 1990 as a concept album based on Wayne Coyne’s lyrical fixation with religion at the time. In light of this, we could have gone with almost any of the songs on the album, but the opener is the one that attracted our attention the first time. However, while the words of Coyne’s song are fairly up to interpretation, it is nonetheless one of the strongest moments on the album.
7. Jesus Hairdo
The Charlatans’ 1994 album,Up To Our Hips, wasn’t one of their best, but it did still reach No. 8 in the UK Album Chart and ‘Jesus Hairdo’ is probably the main standout track. Tim Burgess laments about America’s influence on the world over the band’s trademark baggy groove, with the closing moments serving as a reminder of the talents of the sadly departed Rob Collins on keyboards.
6. I Have Forgiven Jesus
In 2004, Morrissey released his solo albumYou Are The Quarry, which included the song “You Are The Quarry,” which made our list for its blend of comedy and utter arrogance, in which Moz continues to grind his own axe against the rest of the world. Even Jesus cannot escape the wrath of Manchester’s unhappiest man, but don’t worry, Moz has graciously absolved him of any responsibility. Despite Radio 1’s rejection to include the tune on its playlist, the track peaked at No. 10 in the UK Singles Chart during the Christmas week after its release.
5. I Saw The Light
Hanky Panky, the band’s debut studio album released in 1994, is completely comprised of cover versions of songs by country music superstar Hank Williams. The band’s performance of ‘I Saw The Light’, which has a blues-influenced, riff-driven reworking by Matt JohnsonCo. that takes the song into entirely other terrain, is the album’s standout track and the album’s centerpiece. In fact, it’s even better than the first.
4. Jesus Walks
At one point in his career, Kanye was reportedly turned down by several record label executives after performing an unreleased demo of his song “Jesus Walks.” This was reportedly due to the fact that Kanye did not fit the stereotype of a hip hop artist and thus would be difficult to market to a mainstream audience. There’s a palpable irony in this: not only has Kanye become one of the most successful hip-hop artists of all time, but the song’s lyrics also speak directly to the fact that the entertainment industry rejects songs about faith while promoting music with lyrics about sex and violence, among other things.
3. Jesus Christ Pose
Chris Cornell composed the lyrics for the song “Badmotorfinger” from the Seattle band’s 1991 album Badmotorfinger about what he saw to be the abuse of religion by famous individuals, using Jane’s Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell as an example. With a song that was over six minutes long and a video that depicted a lady being crucified, the band struggled to acquire radio airplay and promotion on MTV when the single was released.
Despite this, the record peaked at No. 30 on the UK singles chart. The frenzied, hammering drumming and Kim Thayil’s chugging guitar riffs make it one of the band’s most memorable songs to date.
2. Jesus Doesn’t Want Me For A Sunbeam
The Vaselines’ original song, ‘I’ll Be A Sunbeam,’ was released on their 1988 EP,Dying For It, and became famous after Nirvana covered it for their MTV Unplugged appearance in 1993. The song is a parody of the Christian hymn ‘I’ll Be A Sunbeam,’ and was made famous by Nirvana when they performed it for their MTV Unplugged appearance in 1993. Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee transformed the song into an anti-religious protest song by altering the lyrics in order to undermine the song’s meaning (“Don’t expect me to grieve for all the reasons you had to die / Don’t ever ask your love of me”) by changing the meaning of the lyrics.
1. Personal Jesus
“Personal Jesus,” which was taken from their albumViolator, has since been recorded by artists like as Marilyn Manson and Johnny Cash, but we prefer the original version. Just prior to its release in 1989, the band put advertisements in the classifieds of regional newspapers with the phrase “Your own Personal Jesus” and a telephone number that, when called, allowed the caller to hear a sample of “Your own Personal Jesus.” Priscilla Presley’s book Elvis and Me inspired the words of the song, which Martin Gore claimed was a “very balanced picture of someone.” “We play these god-like roles for people, but no one is flawless, and that’s not a very balanced view of someone, is it?” he remarked in 1990 of the song’s writer.
Top 50 Christian Praise & Worship Songs for Jesus 2021
Originally released on their albumViolator, ‘Personal Jesus’ has since been covered by artists such as Marilyn Manson and Johnny Cash, but we still like the original. Just prior to its release in 1989, the band put advertisements in the classifieds of regional newspapers with the phrase “Your own Personal Jesus” and a telephone number that, when called, allowed the caller to hear a sample of “Your Own Personal Jesus.” Priscilla Presley’s book Elvis and Me inspired the lyrics of the song, which Martin Gore claimed was a “very balanced picture of someone.” “We play these god-like roles for individuals, but no one is flawless, and that’s not a very fair image of someone is it?” he remarked in 1990.
Exodus 23:25 KJV
Also, as long as ye serve the Lord your God, the Lord will bless thy bread and thy water, and I will remove disease from among you.
Psalms 150:6 KJV
Let everything that has a breath give thanks to the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord.
1 Chronicles 16:34 KJV
Praise the Lord with gladness, because he is good, and his compassion endureth forever.
John 4:24 KJV
Praise the Lord with gladness, for he is kind, and his mercy endures forever.

For your inspiration and delight in Christ, we’ve compiled a list of 10 of our favorite “Jesus Songs” from the last year. The first piece of lyrics for each song may be found below each video.
10. “One Thing Remains” – Maranatha! Music
Higher than the mountains that I am confronted with Through the hardship and the change, the Constant has shown to be stronger than the power of death. One thing, though. Remains Your love never fails, and it never gives up on you. Never does my supply run out on me. And on and on it goes, until the point of exhaustion but yet providing satisfaction to my soul And I never, ever have to be terrified of anything One thing remains, though.

I’m going to pray for You and honor Your holy name. The sun rises, signaling the beginning of a new day. It is time to sing Your hymn once more. Whatever happens, and whatever is ahead of me, I’m ready. When the nighttime approaches, please allow me to be singing.
8. “Jesus Messiah” – Chris Tomlin
He became sin, despite the fact that he had never known sin. So that we may be transformed into His righteousness He came to his knees and carried the cross for us. Love is absolutely incredible, love is absolutely incredible Jesus, the Messiah, is the name that is above other names. Emmanuel, you are a blessed redeemer. Jesus Messiah, Lord of all, has come to save sinners and to pay the price demanded by Heaven.
7. “You Are My King (Amazing Love)” – Gateway Worship
My forgiveness is due to your abandonment; my acceptance is due to your condemnation. And I’m still alive and well, and your soul is still alive and well within me Because You died and resurrected from the dead.
My forgiveness is due to your abandonment; my acceptance is due to your condemnation. I’m still alive and healthy, and your spirit is there within me. Because You died and resurrected from the dead.
6. “Hosanna” – Lilly Goodman
It is rising, eyes are turning to you and us, and hope is stirring, hearts are longing for you and us. For when we see You, it gives us the courage to tackle the day ahead of us. All of our anxieties are wiped away, washed away when we are in Your presence. Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna You are the God who rescues us, and you are deserving of all of our adoration. Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna Come and have your way among us; we are delighted to have you. Lord Jesus, please forgive me.
5. “In Christ Alone” – Maranatha! Music
Only in Christ can I find hope; He is my light, my strength, and my song; He is this cornerstone, this solid bedrock, standing firm even in the midst of the worst drought and storm. When our concerns are calmed and our strivings are put to rest, what heights of love and what depths of tranquility may we achieve? My comforter, my all-in-all—I stand here in the love of Christ, surrounded by those who love me.

Sing along with me What a wonderful God we serve. And everyone will be able to see How wonderful, how wonderful is our God!
1. “King of Kings” – Hillsong Worship
We waited in the dim light of the night. You were without hope and without light until you came racing down from above. Your eyes were filled with pity as You carried out the law and prophecies. From a palace of unending grandeur to a crib in the mud, the Word came to be born of a virgin. Praises be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Spirit, three in one God of glory, Majesty, and might. Praise be to the King of Kings forever and ever.

10 Songs About Jesus
Christian music has a long and illustrious history, and you don’t have to be a devoted Christian to appreciate music that is inspired by Jesus. In fact, many of music’s most brilliant minds and voices got their start in church choirs, and many of hip-hop and rock’s most influential artists have drawn inspiration from religious texts. Holy themes have also found a place on the dance floor because to the popularity of electronic dance music. Here are ten songs about Jesus Christ that are current and cross-genre in nature.
- Talking about modern hip-hop is impossible without mentioning Kanye West, and talking about Kanye West is impossible without finally bringing up the subject of Jesus.
- The song “Jesus Walks” was the first time Mr.
- “After Forever” by Black Sabbath is a song from the band Black Sabbath.
- This song was written in reaction to conservative fans who claimed that Black Sabbath was engaged in demonic activity.
- / Could it be that you’re terrified of what your friends might say?
- Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus,” which is similar to Kanye West’s “Jesus Walks,” quickly comes to mind when thinking of a list like this.
- It’s more about being the friend or loved one that is always there for someone when they are in need of a friend the most, but that type of selflessness and friendship is exactly what Jesus taught about in his sermons.
“My Sweet Lord” is a song by George Harrison.
When it came to the Fab Four, George Harrison was the most dedicated of them all, and he carried that stream of consciousness over into his solo career as well.
The song “Jesus Take The Wheel” by Carrie Underwood is available on iTunes.
Carrie Underwood shares a difficult tale on the importance of prayer at a time when we most need it.
If prayer is important to you, make an effort not to make it your sole time of prayer.
Surprisingly, Norman Greenbaum has been included on this list.
Of all, so was Jesus, so perhaps it isn’t such a far-fetched notion after all.
“I Believe In Jesus,” sung by Donna Summers.
Here, she demonstrates the power of the gospel and the fact that forgiveness is available to anybody who believes.
Speaking of groovy sounds, here’s another Jesus song from Portugal that’ll get your groove on.
Today’s world may be harsh and bleak, and many of today’s young people have turned to their own strength for salvation as a result.
“Bigger Picture” is a song by Matthew Parker (Just a Gent Remix) Matthew Parker’s “Bigger Picture” is given a careful makeover in this film that almost feels like a response to “Modern Jesus.” Just A Gent takes this traditional song and infuses it with futuristic electronic sounds that are sure to have everyone swaying, believer or nonbeliever alike.
After that, we’ll round things up with Avicii’s uplifting ballad “Sunset Jesus,” which serves as a gentle reminder to pull ourselves up when we’re feeling low.
Throughout this song, the audience is encouraged to search for Jesus’ spirit in the eyes of strangers and, more importantly, in the beauty of the natural world around them.
7 Songs That Aren’t Afraid to Say “Jesus is Alive!”
A worldwide epidemic is an excellent opportunity to observe Easter. Jesus died on the cross so that we may come to know God and not be afraid of life beyond death. Jesus resurrected from the dead at the tomb, ensuring that our bodies will never suffer from disease or death again in the future. Whatever the celebration of Easter looks like this year, these songs will serve as a constant reminder that Jesus is not just in our hearts. His lungs are working hard to keep him alive. His heart is beating and pumping blood.
He’s still alive, and we have reason to be optimistic!
Jesus is Alive – CityAlight
If you aren’t already, you should start following CityAlight. They are an Australian ensemble that composes simple, modern hymns with strong lyrics and several verses that are easy to sing along to. This joyful song commemorates all of the trials and tribulations Jesus has faced.
Because He Lives – Caleb + Kelsey
A classic, especially if you grew up in a tiny church in the southern United States, this song will bring back fond memories. Gloria Gaither wrote this song in the late 1960s, and Caleb and Kelsey gave it a stunning modern update with their version. While she was pregnant with her third child, she was seized with worry since her husband was unwell, her children were at home, and cultural tensions were high in the country. (Does this sound familiar?) God, on the other hand, met them where they were, and He meets us where we are as well.
Because He exists, this child will be able to confront difficult times.
Forever – Kari Jobe
This song is fantastic for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is the tremendously talented and modest Kari Jobe. When I hear the song “Forever,” I feel as if I was there when Jesus stepped out of the tomb! It’s a tremendous song — both lyrically and instrumentally speaking. And it’s Kari Jobe on the line.
Christ is Risen – Matt Maher
As we read the news headlines each day, this song may serve as a church hymn. Who is the one who defeats death by dying? It was Jesus who accomplished it. The invitation to come and join us as we follow the One who has crushed death is a simple but powerful proclamation.
Maintain your focus on this one! But there’s nothing quite like sitting in church and hearing the men build their deep rumble into a booming chord for “Up from the dead he AROSE!” There’s nothing quite like hearing it for the first time live and in person. As a battle cry, this hymn may be transformed into a song that connects with men in the pews like no other tune I’ve ever heard. There are a plethora of complete versions of this song available online. I favor the ones that have an organ rather than a synthesizer.
In Christ Alone – Lauren Daigle
Many people are familiar with this song, and you may be weary of hearing it, but Lauren’s stripped-down version offers us the space we need to hear it for the first time with new ears. This was best expressed by the writer Stuart Townsend: “We so frequently attempt and stake our hopes on how well we’re doing.
The entire message of grace is that it is not reliant on my performance in any way. It is based on what Jesus has done, and we can place our trust in him for that. In this song, we’re conveying a certain message.”
Living Hope – Phil Wickam
Some lyrics project images onto the blank screen of my mind, while others do not. It has to be the lyric, “Your buried body began to breathe,” in this song that conveys the most vivid picture possible. With the resurrection, Phil takes the story and makes it very personal and exceedingly genuine.

The 5 Best Rock Songs About Jesus
Certainly at its heart, rock ‘n’ roll is an anti-establishment, anti-establishment art form, one that is founded on an enfant terrible mentality and a fair dose of iconoclasm. However, this does not rule out the possibility of a little old-fashioned spirituality every now and then. So here’s a heavenly smattering of Jesus-themed rock tunes from the past several decades. To be sure, many of these songs do not take a conventional approach to the subjects they are addressing, but you wouldn’t expect the likes of Lou Reed and Tom Waits to provide anything that smacked of conventionality, would you?
- Big Star’s “Jesus Christ” is number one.
- A bizarre record by a rather basic rock band in its period that split their sound in a dozen different directions, It was one of the oddest recordings of its era.
- “Personal Jesus” by Depeche Mode is number two.
- Besides being their first song to have a guitar in the forefront, the song was also built around a filthy, bluesy riff that was a world apart from the poppier areas they’d been exploring.
- Even The Byrds’ cover version itself a cover; the original was recorded by crossover gospel group The Art Reynolds Singers in 1966 and released by Columbia Records.
- Jesus by the Velvet Underground is number four on the list.
- Given Lou Reed’s Jewish heritage as well as his iconoclastic position, it’s unclear how literal he wanted this hymn-like prayer for direction from Jesus Christ to be taken.
- Instead than relying on Easter bunnies, when Tom Waits want a confection with a spiritual connection, he goes right to the source.

15 Popular Christian Songs About the Cross and Jesus’ Resurrection
Faith, healing, consolation, and overcoming fear are all topics covered in today’s popular Christian music. We wish to highlight some of the popular Christian songs that amaze at Christ’s sacrifice and His victory over death, so that we don’t get the impression that these songs don’t say enough about the cross and Jesus’ resurrection. While we’ve included a few of classic hymns in this collection of 15 songs, the vast bulk of the songs are by some of the most well-known contemporary Christian music artists working today.
“Red Letters” – Crowder
Inspired by the imagery of Jonathan Edwards’ sermon “Sinning in the Hands of an Angry God,” Crowder’s song shows the immediate peril we all face until we come face to face with Christ’s atonement for our sins. Crowder’s song is available for purchase on iTunes. Unless Jesus died on the cross, we are all facing a death sentence that is absolutely unassailable by anything other than his death. Over the years, Crowder has put together a number of successful Christian songs, and “Red Letters” serves to reinforce his position as one of the finest in the business today.
“What a Beautiful Name” – Hillsong Worship
Music that exalts the Lord’s name and extols His majesty and grace is considered to be the finest type of worship music. Hillsong Worship’s “What a Beautiful Name” has all of that and more to offer listeners. Throughout history, the song, which was released in 2016, demonstrates the majesty of His name by marching through each of His conquests, which range from the creation of the cosmos to the sending of Jesus to His conquering over death. Our favorite part of “What a Beautiful Name” is the bridge, which is a really worshipful moment.
“The Old Rugged Cross” – Various Artists
One of the most well-known traditional hymns in the world was penned by none other than George Bennard. Bennard, a prolific hymn composer and clergyman in the early twentieth century, made a significant contribution to Christian music with this stirring melody. The song “The Old Rugged Cross” has become something of a country gospel classic in recent years, having been sung by Alan Jackson and a slew of other notable artists.
The song “The Old Rugged Cross,” despite its solemn tone, is a love letter to the spot where Jesus took his last breath before the resurrection.
“At the Cross (Love Ran Red)” – Chris Tomlin
When it comes to songs about the cross, we can always rely on one of the most well-known names in Christian music. “At the Cross (Love Ran Red)” is a track from the 2014 album of the same name as the single’s subtitle. It was released in the United Kingdom. The message of this song is that the cross is the source of our salvation, according to the lyrics. The location of Jesus’ death is what gives us life and gives us reason to be hopeful about the future. Of course, Tomlin has a few other great Christian songs on the cross, including “The Wonderful Cross,” which is one of his most well-known.
“Lead Me to the Cross” – Hillsong UNITED
Hillsong UNITED shares the core premise expressed in Tomlin’s “At the Cross (Love Ran Red),” claiming that all else, with the exception of the cross, may be destroyed. We are frequently distracted by our everyday activities (some of which may even be “Christian” in origin), but we must never lose sight of the significance of the cross and what occurred there. As the song points out, His death was essentially a transaction that resulted in us becoming His ownership at the time of his death. In addition, see 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 for further information.
“The Cross Has the Final Word” – Newsboys
Hillsong UNITED shares the core premise expressed in Tomlin’s “At the Cross (Love Ran Red),” claiming that all else, with the exception of the cross, may pass away. We might easily become distracted by our everyday activities (some of which may even be “Christian” in nature), but we must never lose sight of the significance of the cross and what occurred there. As the song points out, His death was essentially a transaction that resulted in us becoming His property at the time of his death. (For more reference, see 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.)
“This is Amazing Grace” – Phil Wickham
Hillsong UNITED shares the core premise expressed in Tomlin’s “At the Cross (Love Ran Red),” claiming that all else, with the exception of the cross, may be lost. Our daily distractions (some of which may even be “Christian” in origin) can easily overshadow the significance of the cross and the events that took place there. As the song points out, His death was essentially a transaction that resulted in us becoming His ownership. (For further information, see 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.)
“Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)” – Casting Crowns
“Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)” by Casting Crowns is a beautiful song that tells the narrative of Jesus’ death and resurrection (at least in earthly terms). The song opens with a description of the cause for Jesus’ presence, which is the enormity of mankind’s guilt. Afterward, the second verse concentrates on the agony of His death, until the third verse springs into action with the victory of His resurrection. Just in case we were under the impression that this was the end of the narrative, the final lyric of the hymn assures us that He will return one day and we shall see all of His splendor.
“Who Am I,” the band’s first successful single, offers a similar perspective on the cross to this song’s more intimate take on the cross.
“Jesus Paid It All” – Various Artists
On our list of popular Christian songs that mention the cross, we have the earliest item, which is a hymn composed around the time of the American Civil War. When it comes to our sin, we must acknowledge that we are utterly powerless over it. “Jesus Paid It All” states that no amount of good acts would be able to remove the leper’s blemishes that were stated. This song, in a way that only the classic old hymns can achieve, is a proclamation of our human nature as well as a prescription for the treatment that we must get.
“In Christ Alone” – Various Artists
An American Civil War-era hymn, “The Cross,” is the earliest entry on our list of popular Christian songs about the cross on our site. When it comes to our sin, we must recognize that we are utterly powerless. “Jesus Paid It All” states that no amount of good actions will be able to remove the leper’s spots. This song, in a way that only the ancient hymns can achieve, is a proclamation of our human nature as well as a prescription for the treatment that we must get.
“Once Again” – Matt Redman
Although it has been more than 20 years since Matt Redman’s debut album, his music continues to speak to us on a regular basis. On their debut album, there was a song called “Once Again,” which became a fan favorite. “The Cross” is a personal reflection on God’s actions toward the singer, in which he considers all that God has done for him and expresses gratitude to God for always being there for him. This is a subject that the album, named “The Friendship and the Fear,” has a lot to say about, with songs like “The Cross Has Said It All” and “The Way of the Cross” among those that are included on the track list.
“Sweetly Broken” – Jeremy Riddle
While Jeremy Riddle may not be as well-known as a Chris Tomlin or a Matt Redman, he has established himself as a well-respected worship leader over the course of many years. In particular, “Sweetly Broken,” an intimate exploration of the cross and its repercussions for each of us, stands out among his finest compositions. One of the finest lines in the song is when Riddle says that the cross “showed that God is loving and God is just.” This is one of the best lines in the song. Because of this paradox, we may see why the death of Christ was essential from the beginning, as well as how each aspect of God is perfectly balanced.
“Flawless” – MercyMe – Popular Christian Songs About the Cross
“Flawless,” in contrast to some of the other popular Christian songs about the cross, does not spend an excessive amount of time creating the scenario of Christ’s death. The music, which is one of the band’s most popular songs from one of their best-selling albums, provides an optimistic break for individuals who are feeling overwhelmed by the process of attempting to strike a balance between their good and bad acts. Avoid allowing fear and humiliation to consume you and instead trust in the mercy of God that He purchased for you through His death on the cross.
“By His Wounds” – Steven Curtis Chapman, Mac Powell, Brian Littrell,Mark Hall
“By His Wounds” is a soul-stirring song that delves into the book of Isaiah 53, plainly emphasizing how much Christ suffered in order to lead us to redemption. As if that weren’t enough, it also boasts some of the most talented vocalists in Christian music today!
The lyrics are wonderful, and they have been studied by theologians for thousands of years because of their significance. The fact that it is backed by the sincere voice of someone likeSteven Curtis Chapman just serves to increase the pull on your heart strings.
“Nailed to the Cross” – Rend Collective
In our previous discussion, we highlighted how many of the popular Christian songs about the crucifixion emphasize how significant that time was in terms of our redemption. Unfortunately, we might frequently find ourselves feeling guilty of our misdeeds and losing sight of the fact that our forgiveness is permanent in nature. Return Collective is dealing with this similar dilemma in “Nailed to the Cross,” in which they find how powerful Christ’s death and resurrection truly were as they process it.
If your sin is beating you up despite the fact that you have repented and called on Christ, we recommend that you listen to this recording.
We’re not going to be able to cover all of the popular Christian songs about the cross in one session.
We believe, however, that these 15 songs serve as an excellent beginning point for further exploration of the subject.
