Sidewalk Prophets "The Words I Would Say" family, especially my 4 children & my new grandson are my WORLD! So, this song has very, very, very special meaning to me. It is my tribute to them!

I have always loved "This little Light of Mine" and Tracey and I used to sing "Amazing Grace" and "Silent Night" I have come to really love "In the Garden" and my all time favorite...."How Great Thou Art"

My favorite song in How Great Thou Art it brings me to tears every time I hear someone singing it. Of course my next favorite is "Hallauha Praise Ye the Lord" my 3 yr old grandaughter sings this all the time.

I've Just Seem Jesus is one of my favorite songs, love the old hymns that have scriptures in them, they minister to my soul. Ladona

michelle chapman said...

Oh my goodness, this is hard as I adore all old gospel hymns! I guess my most favorite would have to be "Bowed on my knees" originally by the Gaither brothers / Michael English, but my husband sings that song at church & he sang it at my uncle's funeral...makes me cry everytime! Such a powerful song!

Hi. My favorite worship song is “How He loves”. There are several versions of it and each one moves me a different way. I love love love David Crowder’s version and also enjoy Jeremy Camp’s. I close my eyes (except when driving, lol, ok well sometimes while driving, but only for a second) and breathe it in, it moves thru me, all the way thru my bones and into my soul. It’s very difficult not to be affected and brought to tears by this song. J I don’t know how anyone can hear it and not be affected and not believe every word of it.

Had to share the lyrics… What a wonderful song to have stuck in my head on this day!!!

He is jealous for me, Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

He is jealous for me, Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves

We are His portion and He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking
So Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets
When I think about the way

And oh, how He loves us
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us so
how he loves

Yeah, He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how he loves
Yeah, He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.

Stand in the rain by Superchick is one of my many favorite songs. It just reminds me how great my God is. He NEVER leaves my side. No matter if I am at my weakest,to where I am flat out on my face or my strongest, where I feel I can do almost anything. He is always right there to hold me. This song was popular when my family went through a very heart breaking and trying time and it gave me a sort of strength during my complete weakness. Thankyou Lord for your sweet mercy and grace.
