Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from the previous week. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back 40+ years. Here’s this week’s chart:

# 1 This Week In:
2020 – “Almost Home” – MercyMe
2019 – “Alive” – Big Daddy Weave
2018 – “What A Friend” – Matt Maher
2017 – “Forgiven” – Crowder
Jordan St. Cyr hangs-on at # 1 with “Fires”. It’s currently a Top 10 hit at U.S. Christian Radio from coast-to-coast. I love the overall feel of the track. It’s quite catchy. I can still hum to it and sing to it hours after last hearing it on the radio. I especially love the bridge:
♫ I can face anything
‘Cause You’re here with me
I can do all things
‘Cause You strengthen me ♫
It was actually a very close call between # 1 and # 2. I actually had Brian & Jenn Johnson’s “God Of Revival” listed as the new # 1 smash earlier in the week, but then I slipped it down to # 2. (Some “behind-the-scenes” information for you: My chart is active as a “living document” all week long. My Top 10 hits sometimes move up and down the chart during the week, but it’s where they land by Sunday evening that ultimately counts. Sometimes a song will enter my chart during the week, but by Sunday evening it’s off again.)
BUBBLING UNDER just outside my Top 10 this week is the new track from Cain. It’s their follow-up to “Rise Up (Lazarus)” which was my # 4 hit of all of 2020. I heard “Yes He Can” on the radio for the first time last Monday, and I instantly loved it. Once I looked it up to see who sang it I was delighted to find out that it was Cain. It’s already exploding at U.S. Christian Radio where it registers the “most increased plays” this week. It should enter my chart next week, and at this point I’m already thinking that it could be a # 1 smash this Summer.
