Since today is Good Friday, which means alot to the Wild Heart because I am a devout Christian, I figured I would celebrate today by talking about the 10 greatest Christian songs.

For those of you who are completely lost as to what Good Friday is, it is the day that Jesus Christ died on the cross for the wrongdoing of the world.  On the 3rd day, he arose from the grave and now lives at the right hand of his Father. It’s basically the reason we as humans exist and can have eternal life if we have a relationship with Christ.

Anyways, here is the 10 greatest Christian songs.

  1. Find A WayAmy Grant. Amy Grant is one of the great songwriters of Christian music. On this song, she doesn’t hold back in both message and harmony. Unlike the other songs of its time, it does not act like it wants to be more, but cannot accomplish this musically – it IS more!
  2. HeroSkillet.
  3. Everything You WantVertical Horizon. Though technically not a christian band per se, this song does have some very Christ-centric lyrics.
  4. A WayMichael W. Smith. – Yes the video is a little cheesy with its editing. However, the message is something that should never be forgotten.
  5. Breathe Your Name Sixpence None the Richer. One of the best breakout Christian bands of the late 90’s and early 2000’s.
  6. AliveP.O.D. P.O.D does not need an explanation to be on this list!
  7. Luv is a Verb – DC Talk. For all you young children out there, this was the band that made TobyMac very popular. This also brings back many memories of playing Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 as a highschool freshman while listening to this cd. Needless to say I wore that cd out and it still plays to this day!
  8. I’m Not Who I WasBrandon Heath. This song has alot of personal meaning for me. I will post why this has alot of personal meaning on  my personal blog.
  9. Open Me UpWatermark. One of the best bands on Rockettown Records in the late 90’s – mid 2000’s. They are truly missed within the Christian music realm and I wish they would start touring and making records once again.
  10. Come to Jesus – Mindy Smith. Simplest message, but nevertheless a powerful one.
