These have been the most popular praise and worship songs during Lent 2019.
7 – “Stand in Your Love” – Josh Baldwin
Josh Baldwin is a worship leader from Bethel Music. He’s been releasing his songs independently and with smaller labels since 2008, but only reached Billboard’s chart for the fist time with “Stand in Your Love,” the single from his 2019 album, Victory. Baldwin’s catchy tune has held its peak position of #7 for 33 weeks.
6 – “Look Up Child” – Lauren Daigle
Lauren Daigle is in the middle of a monumental career that will ultimately change the face of Christian music and for the better. Her style produces quite possibly the most introspective and catchy Christian music on the board and it has been recognized as such, leading to multiple songs on the top of the list. Her first album featured three #1 singles and went certified platinum. “Look Up Child,” the title track of her second album, peaked at #5 and now rests comfortably at #6 for 31 weeks.
5 – “Only Jesus” – Casting Crowns
Casting Crowns was started by youth pastor Mark Hall, who serves as the band’s lead singer. No stranger to the Billboard’s Christian chart, Casting Crowns has had many hits that have found their way to the top 10. They have sold more than 10 million records since 1999 and have even won a Grammy for their 2006 album, Lifesong. “Only Jesus” peaked at #3, but currently sits at #4 and has remained in the top 10 for 33 weeks.
