Purify My Heart~ My Favorite Christian Songs

"But I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things"
-Vincent van Gogh

There's a lot of really great Christian songs that I think are beautiful (even if you're not a Christian).
Since today is Easter (and I've been awake since 3am!), I figured it'd be nice to write about my favorite Christian songs.
I didn't grow up going to church, so I don't know a lot~ But the ones I DO know are AWESOME.

*Side Note- Most if not all my favorite Christian songs are the slow and emotional ones.
I'm a "Frozen Chosen"- I always feel awkward when we have to clap to the fast ones.  =P

Hosanna - Hillsong United
This is probably my favorite Christian song. I first remember hearing it at our GNC retreat.
It was a memorable experience. I love the lyrics, the melody.... everything.

How Great Is Our God- Chris Tomlin
This song really moves me.  It's been a glimmer of hope through some of my darkest times.
Worthy Is The Lamb- Hillsong
*** This video has clips from the movie "The Passion of the Christ" so it's really graphic *** 

That's What Faith Can Do- Kutless
This a really great song that really lifts me up.  I think it can apply to those that aren't religious. It's inspiring.
Mighty To Save- Hillsong
So take me as You find me
All my fears & failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Stronger- Hillsong
No beginning, and no end
You're my hope and my defense
You came to seek and save the lost
You paid it all, upon the cross

All Creation
This is a song I learned in Kenya.  The Orphans at the By Grace Orphanage
I can't find the mp3 anywhere~ If you know where to find it, please let me know!!!  =D

Refiner's Fire/Purify My Heart
I like the Lena Park version but couldn't find it...

Lord I Lift Your Name On High
I don't like the fast versions of this song but I can't find any good slow ones  =T

Habitation/Oh Lord My Heart Longs To Be
Oh Lord I want to be like You
My lips to speak the words You do
My hands to streach forth, in healing others
My feet to carry the good news

Father I Adore You
This was one of the first Christian songs I learned.
We always sing this song in rounds in Kenya.

All in All
You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all

"All are but parts of one stupendous whole,
Whose body Nature is, and God the soul"
-Alexander Pope

*~ Have a Blessed Day! ~*
