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 nearly 45 years. Here’s this week’s chart – for the week ending Sunday May 21ST 2023 – the 327TH week of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017:
|TW||LW||WKS||SONG TITLE||ARTIST / SITE|
|1||2||12||This Is Our God
[1ST week @ # 1]
|2||1||18||The Lord’s Prayer (It’s Yours)||Matt Maher|
|4||4||25||I See Grace||Micah Tyler|
|5||6||8||Cornerstone||TobyMac Ft. Zach Williams|
|6||8||2||Anxious Heart||Jeremy Camp|
|7||9||5||Thank God I Do||Lauren Daigle|
|8||10||3||You Will Be Found||Natalie Grant Ft. Cory Asbury|
|9||–||1||That’s The Thing About Praise||Benjamin William Hastings Ft. Blessing Offor|
|10||–||1||Fear Is Not My Future||Maverick City Music Ft. Brandon Lake & Chandler Moore|
# 1 This Week In:
2022 – “Egypt” – Cory Asbury
2021 – “Help Is On The Way (Maybe Midnight)” – TobyMac
2020 – “I Will Fear No More” – The Afters
2019 – “Alive” – Big Daddy Weave
2018 – “The Way (New Horizon)” – Pat Barrett
2017 – “Oh My Soul” – Casting Crowns
VIEW FROM ABOVE – I’ve got a new # 1 smash. After 12 weeks at the top Matt Maher slips a notch to # 2 with what will likely be one of the top songs of the entire year – “The Lord’s Prayer (It’s Yours)”. We actually sing that song as part of Praise & Worship at my home church. No need for me to follow the words on the big screen, as I’ve got it memorized after hearing it on the radio a few hundred times since January. Replacing Matt Maher at # 1 is Phil Wickham, as he reaches the top of my chart for the first time ever – with his 8TH hit and 70TH week overall on my chart.
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again with the new weekend – and 4 new entries – known as #TravelThursday, #SundayScripture, a special #MemorialDayMonday, and #Top10Tuesday.
