On a regular basis, Friday Fives checks in with CCLI to get a feel for those songs that are the most prevalent worship tools across the country. So that’s what’s up with this edition.
CCLI is the predominant tracking and tabulating company for worship music. Most churches license their music through CCLI, which assures the composers receive the appropriate compensation and recognition.
5. How Great Is Our God
Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Jesse Reeves
The most well-known song from one of the most well-known worship artists in the last 15 years.
4. Forever Reign
Jason Ingram, Reuben Morgan
This song combines Hillsongs (Reuben Morgan) and One Sonic Society (Jason Ingram).
3. One Thing Remains (Your Love Never Fails)
Brian Johnson, Christa Black Gifford, Jeremy Riddle
If I have a favorite on this list, it’s probably this one.
2. Our God
Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves, Jonas Myrin, Matt Redman
“Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other. Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!”
1. 10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)
Jonas Myrin, Matt Redman
One music publication referred to this song as “the most important worship song of the 21st century so far.”
