Every Monday night I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday May 06TH 2018:
- “What A Friend” – Matt Maher [# 3 last week / 7TH week on chart]
- “Freedom Hymn” – Austin French [ 1 / 7TH]
- “No Matter What” – Ryan Stevenson Ft. Bart Millard [5 / 5TH]
- “Grace Got You” – MercyMe [4 / 5TH]
- “I Just Need U.” – TobyMac [2 / 7TH]
- “Do It Again” – Elevation Worship [- / 1ST]
- “The Way (New Horizon)” – Pat Barrett [- / 1ST]
- “All In” – Matthew West [- / 1ST]
- “Resurrection Power” – Chris Tomlin [9 / 13TH]
- “Walking On Water” – NeedToBreathe [10 / 4TH]
We have a new # 1 smash this week, as Matt Maher’s debut on this chart becomes the 20TH # 1 hit since its rebirthing Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017. It’s also 1 of 3 hits this week that were performed LIVE at “Worship Night In America” at the BB&T Center in Sunrise Florida a couple of weekends ago. (“The Way” and “Resurrection Power” were the others.) That was such a fantastic concert. I’ll be talking about it for a long time !
Before that concert I had no idea who Pat Barrett was, and then he sang to God. Once I heard “The Way (New Horizon)” I sang along (having never heard it before). I determined in that moment that it was an instant out-of-the-box smash. And then last week I heard it on K-LOVE for the first time, and I got so excited that I immediately tweeted them about that song, and even Pat joined in on all the fun. That tweet has now received over 1,650 impressions in 5 days.
The Way. The Truth. The Life. I believe You are.
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6 NLT)
