Top Christian Songs for the Week Ending December 16, 2012

By

We have a lot of Christmas music in the charts this week, making the Top Songs Chart a very merry one indeed.

The official Top Christian Hits Chart is compiled 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. "I Need A Miracle" - Third Day

Third Day - Miracle
Essential Records

In its 10th week and still at #1, "I Need A Miracle" comes to us from Third Day's latest release, Miracle. Getting lost in a world of that is full of sorrow and pain is a path that we've all walked down. Going to God and crying out to Him is the only answer because He is the only one who can right the ship in the storm.

2. "Christmas Time Again" - Steven Curtis Chapman

Steven Curtis Chapman - Joy
Provident

Debuting this week, the fun "Christmas Time Again" comes to us from Joy. A reminder that this is the perfect time of year to gather family and friends in close and celebrate Jesus, this upbeat tune will bring plenty of smiles.

3. "One Thing Remains" - Kristian Stanfill

Passion: White Flag
sixstepsrecords/Sparrow Records

Jesus Culture's "One Thing Remains" is as vibrant and alive on the Passion version as it ever was. Kristian Stanfill delivers pure worship here.

4. "Eye On It" - tobyMac

tobymac - Eye On It
Forefront Records

"Eye On It," the title track on Toby's latest album, is the second single to hit the charts from that release. It's making big waves on the UK charts.

5. "Forgiveness" - Matthew West

Matthew West - Into the Light
Sparrow Records

In week #22 after weeks at #1, the gorgeous and profound "Forgiveness" is off of Matthew West's new release, Into The Light.

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

Israel & New Breed - Jesus At The Center
Integrity Music

Debuting this week, "It's Not Over (When God Is In It)" features Aaron Lindsey. 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.

7. "The Night Before Christmas" - Brandon Heath

Do You Hear What I Hear? Songs Of Christmas
Benson/Provident

Debuting this week, "The Night Before Christmas" is found on the compilation Do You Hear What I Hear? Songs Of Christmas. Brandon sings about the time before the birth of a Savior and how different things were.

8. "Joy To The World" - Jeremy Camp

Jeremy Camp - Christmas: God With Us
BEC Recordings

Jeremy Camp's version of the classic carol is slightly understated and full of praise and worship. He still rocks it - just in an easy way.

9. "It's Christmas" - Mandisa

Mandisa - It's Christmas Angel Edition
Sparrow Records

Another new song, this carol is full of energy and fun while still imparting an important message.

10. "Redeemed" - Big Daddy Weave

Big Daddy Weave - Love Come To Life
Fervent Records/Word

We first heard this popular ballad in July and six months later, it's still as wonderful and honest as it was then - and a perfect way to close out this week's chart. The second radio single from Love Come To Life, the acoustic background gives a solid sound to absolute truth that we all need to hear - we are redeemed by the blood of the lamb.
