Top Songs of 2020

At the close of 2019, I offered up a list of the songs that had impacted me throughout the year. I would like to do the same at the close of this year. The following songs have played a significant role in my life over the course of the past year. Some were used for corporate worship, while others ministered to me on a personal level. Where they are available, I have included YouTube links for the songs so you might be able to listen to them. Please consider supporting these artists by purchasing their albums or downloading their songs.

“After the Longest Night” Lex Buckley

“Amadeo (Still my God)” Ryan Stevenson

“Count me in” Switch

“Enough” Koryn Hawthorne

“For a Moment” Elevation Worship

“Goodness of God” Bethel

“I have this Hope” Tenth Avenue North

“I Know whom I have Believed”: My grandma passed away this year, and this was one of her favorite hymns to sing!

“I will Praise You” Ginny Owens: I watched many Facebook Lunchbreak Live mini concerts by Ginny Owens this year, and this inspired a song I shared at the FRC Thanksgiving Eve service.

“Praise You in this Storm” Natalie Grant: When I wrote my book Beyond the Fury between 2005 and 2007, this song by Casting Crowns was a theme song of sorts.  Now, Bernie Herms has released this song with his wife Natalie.  I love piano ballads and coupled with the beauty of this song, its no surprise that this is one of my songs of the year.

“Safe and Secure” Matt Crosson: I met Matt during the Worship Songwriter Mentorship this year, and this song was my favorite of the many tunes he composed throughout our nine weeks together.  I even had a chance to cover it at FRC.

“The Blessing” Cody Carnes, Kari Jobe

“The Sun will Rise Again” Becca Bradley

“While I Wait” Lincoln Brewster
