2019 has been a great year (so far) as far as worship music is concerned. Some of the genre’s biggest names such as Hillsong UNITED, Darlene Zschech, and Mack Brock have all graced us with new songs. But this year we have also seen some stellar new artists raising the bar with great tunes for the church to sing. Hopefully this list will help resource worship leaders as they think of including new songs in their worship song sets as well as equip all of us with more worship resources in our daily worship and our own spiritual warfare.
10. Mack Brock “Still in Control”
Former worship leader of Elevation Worship, Mack Brock has given us a newly penned hymn-like “Still in Control.” This song could easily be placed on the same pedestal as Hillsong’s “Cornerstone” or Bethel Music “You Make me Brave.” “Still in Control” is a crescendo-building ballad that speaks of how our souls can be at rest because no event escapes the sovereignty of our God. The pounding of the drums, the escalating tenor of Brock’s vocals, and the progressive outburst of passion, make this a faith-building soundtrack for all of God’s children
9. Thrive Worship “Praise The Name (Ancient Doors)”
Thrive Worship’s new Integrity Music’s album recently made history when it debuted at #1 barring Lauren Daigle from the pole position. One of the highlights from the record is “Praise The Name (Ancient Doors).” This power ballad combines both the awe of God and the intimacy of drawing close to Jesus together effortlessly on a solidly structured melody.
8. Michael W. Smith Featuring Cece Winans “King of Glory”
In an unexpected move, Smith has chosen to cover Todd Dulney’s “King of Glory.” Here Smith takes the back seat behind the keyboard, while CeCe Winans takes on the microphone. Winans completely inhabits every note of this worship ballad nuancing each syllable with passion as she sings about her love to dwell in Christ’s presence.
