Favorite Worship Songs from 2015

I’m a few years back on my top ten song lists so this will be a bit of a catch up…some of these I’ve never led but enjoyed in various churches and conferences I’ve attended recently.

Arise, Shine, for Your Light has Come- Isaiah 60 (Jered McKenna)
mp3 | chart
I’ve seen a lot of people using this song for both advent and epiphany. Another gem from Jered McKenna who works as a worship leader/pianist in Greenville, SC.

Come My Way – Coram Deo Church
Classic George Herbert text with an uber singable melody.  We sang this one a ton during communion and I’ve got a passable string quartet arr. written for it as well.

All Things Are Ready – Matthew Smith and Sandra McCracken
mp3 | leadsheet
This song for communion slipped by me until I sang it at Pillar Church here in Holland, MI.

We Will Feast in the House of Zion (Sandra McCracken)
mp3 | chords | leadsheet
New song from Sandra’s recent Psalms album.  Super singable tune and text!

Praise the Lord, All Praise and Blessing (Matt Scott)
mp3chart
Matt is the worship leader at a church in Hilton Head, SC and produced a great album of retunes a few years back.

His Love Endures Forever – Psalm 136 (Caroline Cobb)
mp3 | chart
There are a LOT of good songs on our new psalms project but this was one of the stand outs for me.  Caroline can write a song!

Dawning Light of Our Salvation – Luke 1 (Wendell Kimbrough)
mp3 | chart | leadsheet
Collaboration with Wendell that has gotten some traction in churches recently.  Always fun to hear your songs sung by others.

None But Thee (Trinity Grace Church)
mp3 | chart
An early track from the folks behind Young Oceans. Springsteen vibed retune

All I Have is Yours (Sojourn)
Mp3 | Chords | Leadsheet | Youtube |
That song we’ve all been looking for to use during offerings. I heard it for the first time at a Thanksgiving service. Thanks Bobby Gilles

Psalm 126 – Our Mouths They Were Filled (Bifrost Arts Music)
mp3 | chart
This almost feels like an old favorite but it’s not shown up on any of my lists yet so I’m overdue.  Really singable text and tune from Isaac Wardell. A psalm of ascents – very suitable for Lent, Holy Week.
