Top Christian Songs for the Week Ending February 24, 2013

By

Chris Tomlin has moved up to the #1 spot this week with his latest single.

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 three weeks ago and moves up to #1 this week. Already making big waves, 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. "Your Love Never Fails" - Newsboys

Newsboys - God's Not Dead
Inpop Records

Debuting this week, "Your Love Never Fails" comes from God's Not Dead. Their version of the well-known worship song gives us a pop edge with a lot of warm fun.

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

Need You Now (How Many Times) - Plumb
Curb Records

"Need You Now (How Many Times)," which we first saw hit the charts in October, is off of Plumb's upcoming release Need You Now, which will hit stores tomorrow. 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.

4. "One Thing Remains" - Kristian Stanfill

Passion: White Flag
sixstepsrecords/Sparrow Records

After two weeks at #1, Jesus Culture's "One Thing Remains" moves down a few spots. This song is as spirit-filled and full of love and life on the Passion version as it ever was. Kristian Stanfill shines as he shares a moment of pure worship with us.

5. "You Are I Am" - MercyMe

MercyMe - The Hurt & The Healer
Provident

"You Are I Am," the second single release from The Hurt & The Healer, holds firm at #5 in its fifth week in the charts. A song that shines a spotlight on us, our sin and our flawed beliefs that Jesus can't reach us because we've fallen so far down the rabbit hole of sin, it also reminds us at the end that "It's not about falling" but where we land.

6. "10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)" - Matt Redman

Matt Redman - 10,000 Reasons
sixstepsrecords/Sparrow Records

We first heard "10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)" last June. With roots in Psalm 103, the song has an unpolished and raw feel that doesn't water down the lyrics or the sentiment.

7. "I Need A Miracle" - Third Day

Third Day - Miracle
Essential Records

After making it all the way to #1, "I Need A Miracle" slips down another four spots from last week. The song comes from Third Day's November release, Miracle. The light rocker is about getting lost in a world of that is full of sorrow and pain - 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.

8. "Kings & Queens" - Audio Adrenaline

Audio Adrenaline - Kings & Queens
Fair Trade Services

A new song and a new sound for AudioA, "Kings & Queens" is the first single release and title track from the upcoming March release. Kevin Max says that the song is "THE orphan anthem" and Mark Stuart calls it "an amazing depiction of the kids' story."

9. "Redeemed" - Big Daddy Weave

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

We first heard this exquisite ballad in July of last year and it ended 2012 at #10. 2013 is seeing new radio love as it is back in the charts but this is no real surprise because the song really is still as glorious and sincere as it was when it came out. The second radio single from Love Come To Life, the acoustic background gives a satisfying sound to absolute truth that we all need to hear - we are redeemed by the blood of the lamb.

10. "Steal My Show" - tobyMac

tobymac - Eye On It
Forefront Records

The third single from Eye On It debuts this week in the Top 10. In typical tobyMac fashion, he invites the Lord to steal his show any time, reminding us that for him, it is about sharing God, not applause.
