Top Christian Songs of 2013

The Top 40 Most Popular Christian Songs of 2013

By

10. "Steal My Show" - tobyMac

tobymac - Eye On It
Forefront Records

The third single from Eye On It is one of the most popular. In a total "it's all about you and not a bit about me" move, tobyMac asks Jesus to steal his show any time, any place. The song gives us a clear picture of his character and for him, what he does is all about sharing God, not applause or accolades.

9. "Every Praise" - Hezekiah Walker

Hezekiah Walker - Azusa The Next Generation
RCA Records
"Every Praise" came to us from the June release, Azusa The Next Generation. Be prepared - this song will have you getting your praise on and you'll be on your feet long before the last notes.

 

8. "We Won't Be Shaken" - Building 429

Building 429 - We Won't Be Shaken
Provident
"We Won't Be Shaken" is the title track from Building 429's latest CD. With a mightily compelling chorus that imparts that no matter what life throws at us, we won't be shaken, this song serves as a timely reminder that when your faith is built upon the rock, it can not be moved.

7. "Help Me Find It" - Sidewalk Prophets

Sidewalk Prophets - Live Like That
Fervent Records/Word
"Help Me Find It" is the latest single to hit the radio airwaves from the 2012 hit album, Live Like That. A song that asks God to help us find His will and our place in it, this is a tune that will speak directly to your heart.

6. "One Thing Remains" - Passion f/ Kristian Stanfill

Passion: White Flag
sixstepsrecords/Sparrow Records

The Passion take on Jesus Culture's "One Thing Remains" 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. "Every Good Thing" - The Afters

The Afters - Life Is Beautiful
Fair Trade Services
"Every Good Thing" comes from the April release, Life Is Beautiful. Upbeat and happy, this song is perfect for riding with the top down!

4. "You Are I Am" - MercyMe

MercyMe - The Hurt & The Healer
Provident

"You Are I Am," the second single release from The Hurt & The Healer, spent over 25 weeks 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.

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

Chris Tomlin - Burning Lights
EMI

The long-running "Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)," also spent over 25 weeks in the charts. The song is from the January Chris Tomlin release, Burning Lights. This tune sparkles lightly, yet beneath the glitter is full-size substance! It is a key 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. "Words" - Hawk Nelson f/ Bart Millard

Hawk Nelson - Made
Fair Trade/Columbia
"Words" was the lead off single from the album, Made, the first Hawk Nelson album without Jason Dunn on vocals. With a little help from MercyMe's Bart Millard, this song speaks words that we should all take to heart, sharing that each and every thing that we say should be full of life and truth.

1. "Hello, My Name Is" - Matthew West

Matthew West - Into the Light
Sparrow Records
The most popular Christian song of 2013 was "Hello, My Name Is." Throughout the year, the song was found in the Top 10 on eight different major charts. It came to us on Into the Light and it hit home every time it was heard. We've all heard those little voices in our head - fear, defeat, regret and all of their little cousins. Listening to them makes us forget that we are the children of the King who are defined by His grace rather than being failures who are defined by our mistakes.
