Top 20 Worship Songs of 2015

Worship Leader Magazine’s picks:

Picking the top worship songs for the year is a heavy task—one we take very seriously. Of course, this list is not the “right” one. It is, simply, our list. We chose the songs that we saw making an impact this year, and songs we see as exemplars because of their prayer essence and congregational focus—these are simply our favorites as well. Certainly there were songs released in previous years that impacted the Church this year, but this list only represents tracks that were new and on releases in 2015. We encourage you to take a listen to the following offerings, maybe bring a few into your service of worship, and also let us know which new songs made a difference for you this past year.
