Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday August 18TH 2019:
- “Raise A Hallelujah” – Bethel Music [# 1 last week / 11TH week on chart]
- “Symphony” – Switch [3 / 11TH]
- “Nobody (But Jesus)” – Casting Crowns Ft. Matthew West [6 / 3RD]
- “Fear No More” – Building 429 [9 / 3RD]
- “I’m Gonna Let It Go” – Jason Gray [10 / 2ND]
- “Till I Found You” – Phil Wickham [2 / 11TH]
- “(Love Is The) Reason” – Unspoken [7 / 5TH]
- “Dead Man Walking” – Jeremy Camp [8 / 5TH]
- “Resurrecting” – Elevation Worship [4 / 19TH]
- “Yes I Will” – Vertical Worship [- / 1ST]
# 1 One Year Ago This Week:
“Who You Say I Am” – Hillsong Worship
# 1 Two Years Ago This Week:
“Hard Love” – NeedToBreathe
Bethel Music holds on at # 1 for the 4TH week in a row, but this could be it for the instant worship song at our Sunday morning church services.
3 songs I’m loving have broken out of the pack, and they’ve climbed into my Top 5:
Casting Crowns have another bonafide smash on their hands with a track that’s from the point-of-view of John The Baptist. Everyone wanted to know all about him, but he declared himself to be a “Nobody”. He said, “I am a voice shouting in the wilderness. Clear the way, for the Lord’s coming !” You want to know about Somebody ? Let me tell you all about Jesus. “Cause I’m just a nobody – trying to tell everybody – all about Somebody – who saved my soul.”
Building 429 out of Fayetteville North Carolina have been together for 20 years, and they’ve scored some big hits on the radio during this decade of the 2010s, but “Fear No More” is actually their debut smash here on my chart. It’s got a Skillet sound to it, and that makes sense, as I enjoyed Building 429 LIVE in concert as one of the opening acts for Skillet back in January 2018.
And finally Jason Gray scores his debut smash here on my chart with his “pop-meets-reggae” track, “I’m Gonna Let It Go”. It’s also Top 15 nationwide on Christian radio. It’s got the perfect feel for a late-Summer day at the beach, but more importantly it’s got powerful lyrics:
I’m gonna take You at Your word
I’m gonna lay down all my burdens
Oh – I’m gonna let it – I’m gonna let it go
