Top Christian Songs for the Week Ending March 31, 2013

By

Chris Tomlin is the #1 artist in Christian music this week. He has the #1 single and another song from the same album entering the chart.

The official Top Christian Hits Chart is compiled each week by checking and averaging Christian charts and top play lists from all over the U.S. such as Billboard, Cashbox and Air 1 to find the most popular songs.

1. "Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)" - Chris Tomlin

Chris Tomlin - Burning Lights
EMI

"Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)," from the latest Chris Tomlin release, Burning Lights, debuted eight weeks ago and it remains at #1 on five other charts. This tune shines and is a big part of why the album is Tomlin's first to make it all the way to the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 Chart.

2. "It's Not Over (When God Is In It)" - Israel & New Breed

Israel & New Breed - Jesus At The Center
Integrity Music

We first saw this song back in December. This version of "It's Not Over (When God Is In It)" features Aaron Lindsey (there is another version on the CD that features James Fortune and Jason Nelson). No matter where you are in your walk with Jesus, this song will speak to you and remind you that as long as God is in your life, it's not over.

3. "Kings & Queens" - Audio Adrenaline

Audio Adrenaline - Kings & Queens
Fair Trade/Columbia

It only took eight weeks for "Kings & Queens," the first single release and title track from the new March release, to make it to the top spot in the charts. Kevin Max says that the song is "THE orphan anthem" and Mark Stuart calls it "an amazing depiction of the kids' story."

4. "Lights Out" - Silverline

Silverline - Lights Out
Dream Records

Debuting this week, the upbeat and catchy title track from the band's upcoming release is fast paced and fun.

5. "Just A Dream" - Sumerlin

Sumerlin - Motives
Sumerlin

Another new tune, "Just A Dream" comes to us from Wilmington, North Carolina's Sumerlin. This is a band that is making waves with their talent and getting a lot of attention.

6. "Words" - Hawk Nelson f/ Bart Millard

Words - Hawk Nelson
Fair Trade Services

"Words" is the single from the upcoming April release, Made, the first Hawk Nelson album without Jason Dunn on vocals. With a little help from MercyMe's Bart Millard, this song is getting a ton of radio love.

7. "Your Love Never Fails" - Newsboys

Newsboys - God's Not Dead
Inpop Records

Moving steadily up the charts, in week #6, "Your Love Never Fails" keeps getting spins. The band's version of the well-known worship song comes from God's Not Dead and it gives us a pop edge with a lot of warm fun.

8. "God's Great Dance Floor" - Chris Tomlin

Chris Tomlin - Burning Lights
EMI

The second single from Burning Lights shows us a side of Chris Tomlin that we haven't seen thus far ... dance music. The Martin Smith tune is new territory for Tomlin and shows us a lighthearted and fun face.

9. "Nothing Is Wasted" - Jason Gray

Jason Gray - A Way To See In The Dark
Centricity Music

Debuting this week, the piano driven "Nothing Is Wasted" is stunning in its simple beauty.

10. "Need You Now (How Many Times)" - Plumb

Plumb - Need You Now
Curb Records

"Need You Now (How Many Times)," which we first saw hit the charts in October, is off of Plumb's latest release Need You Now. Reminding us that when we can't mend what is broken in our lives and cry out to God, He is there, this song will minister to your spirit.
