What is your favorite song of praise and worship?

Mine is "Because He Lives", by Bill and Gloria Gaither. Such beautiful, meaningful words.
"Because HE lives, I can face tomorrow. Because HE lives, all fear is gone. Because I know HE holds the future, and life is worth the living, just because HE lives!" You have no idea how many times a day I sing those very words. They have gotten me through some really tough times.

  • I love "Heart of Worship" and "Thy Word".
    Also I am a singer, and one year for Christmas, I sang "O Holy Night" at the midnight mass with the choir and organ accompanying me. I was singing alone until the first "FAll on your knees". That was when the choir joined in behind me. And the sound of my voice and theirs in this beautiful harmony, was one of the most spiritual experiences I have had. When I think about that moment, I still get chills. I felt the presence of God there with me, in my voice. Amazing.

    a "praise and worship" song is really just a modern day hymn.

  • Those are Hindu.

    Hinduism and Sikhism are ripe with songs of faith.

    For Hindus and Sikhs alike, most prayers are in the form of songs. Most puja (prayers) involve singing. Even the reading of the holy text are done in almost a singing form.

    For Sikhs, these songs/singing as a form of prayer is called "Kirtan".
    For Hindus, these songs/singing as a form of puja is called "bhajans" and "Kirtan", even the chanting of mantras has a very distinct rhythm.

    Song/chants/music are very much a part of Sikh & Hindu faith/worship.
