Graduation is a big step in anyone's life. It is stepping from the last vestiges of childhood to the real world. The day carries both promise and a slight sense of loss. It will be remembered through out life and the music that accompanies the moment will forever bring a sense of nostalgia. The Top Christian Graduation Songs will help set the mood for the memories.

5. "We Live" - Superchick

Superchick - Beauty From Pain 1.1
Inpop Records

From the CD Beauty From Pain 1.1

There's a man who waits for the tests
To see if the cancer has spread yet
And now he asks, "So why did I wait to live till it was time to die?"
If I could have the time back how I'd live
Life is such a gift
So how does the story end?
Well this is your story and it all depends
So don't let it become true
Get out and do what we were meant to do

Our story is just that ... ours! We have to write it as best we can

6. "One Life" - Press Play

Press Play - Life Is Beautiful
Dream Records

From the CD Life Is Beautiful

I’ve got one life to live this life
I’ve got on try to get it right
I’ve got one try to change a life
I’ve got one life one life
My someday’s have come and gone
My someday’s before me now
My todays why im alive
I’ve got one life one life

Life is a beautiful thing, but with only one of them to live, we can not let it slip by.

7. "It's a Good Day" - Jaime Thietten

Jaime Thietten - Love Along The Way
Alturas Productions

From the CD Love Along the Way

It's a Good Day good day to be alive
Everyone sing now
So let's do more than just survive
That's what I'm sayin'
Don't lose sight, of all the beauty that surrounds you
Don't let it pass you by, It's a good day to be alive

A gentle reminder that every day is a new day and you can miss the majesty of it if you are so caught up in the rat race that you don't stop and take a moment to appreciate what God has given you.

8. "By Your Side" - Tenth Avenue North

Tenth Avenue North - Over and Underneath

And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don't fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

The world awaits is a sentiment that every young person stepping out from under mom and dad has. This song reminds them that no matter where they end up or when they call, Jesus is by their side.

9. "I Call It Apathy" - Paige Armstrong

Paige Armstrong - Wake Up
Whiplash Records

From the CD Wake Up

But, I call it apathy
State of complacency,
That's taking over who we really are
I call it apathy that's keeping us asleep
We've only got this one moment
To leave our mark

Apathy is the enemy. It keeps us from doing anything while believing that we're doing everything that we can. Apathy leads to just being a stain rather than making a mark!

Brandon Heath - What if We
Reunion

From the CD What If We...

So now's my time to be a man, follow my heart as far as I can
No tellin’ where I’m ending up tonight
I never slow down or so it seems, but singing my heart is one of my dreams
All I gotta do is hold on tight

Brandon Heath sings of growing up and allowing God to continue to mold and shape you on this great pop song.
