These have been the most popular praise and worship songs during Lent 2019.
It’s been a while since Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs has been stirred up, but Easter is a popular time for Christian artists to drop new tunes, so it’s likely we will soon have a whole new lineup of tremendous tracks. Now, before any new releases, we thought it pertinent to take a look at the most popular songs throughout this Lenten season.
Every one of the tracks on the list has enjoyed a long run at the top and been on the board since before Lent began. Some of these songs have been so popular that they have remained on the list for upwards of 20 weeks. Without further ado, lets take a look at Billboard’s Top 10 Hot Christian Songs!
10 – “Resurrecting” – Elevation Worship
Elevation Worship is a rather large band with quite a few floating members. They originated as the house band of Elevation Church, in North Carolina, but they’ve grown large enough to fill venues all over the world. Their song “Resurrecting” has remained in at #10 for the last 34 weeks.
9 – “Red Letters” – Crowder
Crowder is a talented multi-instrumentalist who is at home in front of a mic, behind a piano, with a guitar, and even a banjo. The title “Red Letters” refers to the popular practice of highlighting Christ’s words in red when they appear in the Gospels. Crowder’s hit tune has remained at #9 for 27 weeks.
8 – “Maybe It’s OK” – We Are Messengers
One of the newer bands on the list, We Are Messengers is an Irish worship band from Monaghan, who came together in 2015. The band has had five songs reach Billboard’s chart, the most successful of which is “Maybe It’s OK,” which has held its peak position of #8 for 20 weeks.
