PLB’s Hillsong’s Top 10 Songs of the Past 15 Years

PLB’s Hillsong’s Top 10 Songs of the Past 15 Years

By admin on April 1, 2013

So, just so you know, the Pastor Lams Blog ������ family is an absolute lover of Hillsong music- every one of us loves every thing about Hillsong. Their songs are the most amazing songs in the whole world according to us and we’ve been avid listeners for close to a decade and have listened to songs before this time and most after as well, so we thought to do a rundown of some of Hillsong’s best music- (Hillsong United/Hillsong Live/Hillsong Worship) of the past decade… and a half.
It’s one of the toughest things in the world to have to truncate a list of hundreds of Hillsong songs of the past one and a half decade to just 10. It’s a tougher job than being president, but we tried, we cried ������������ (as we cut off some absolutely incredible tracks), pleaded to make it “top 50”, then “top 25”, then “top 20” but nope, boss said it had to be just 10 for today. So just like you, we’re shocked and gutted some tracks didn’t make the cut, but we had to make it 10. Maybe next time it will be top 100 though, then at least the job of selecting can then be as easy as being president.
We also put YouTube links to the videos just so you hear and see them perform. You can go download their songs from their official website or from iTunes, Amazon etc.
Here goes!

Notable mentions:

We’re not going back in history for this one, it’s been so emotional for us already doing the little we did. Hillsong’s new album “There is More” is in stores everywhere! We highly recommend that you get the album and be totally blessed with titles such us “You are Life”, “Be still”, “New Wine” ������ etc.
Remember to share and drop in comments of how much this has blessed you.
We’ll see you again!

An oracle is within my heart about the disobedience of the wicked: «There is no fear of God before his eyes.» For he flatters himself in his own eyes, too much to detect and hate his sin. The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit. He has ceased to be wise and to do good. He plots iniquity on his bed. He sets himself in a way that is not good. He doesn’t abhor evil. Your loving kindness, Yahweh, is in the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mountains of God. Your judgments are like a great deep. Yahweh, you preserve man and animal. How precious is your loving kindness, God! The children of men take refuge under the shadow of your wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the abundance of your house. You will make them drink of the river of your pleasures. For with you is the spring of life. In your light shall we see light. Oh continue your loving kindness to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart. Don’t let the foot of pride come against me. Don’t let the hand of the wicked drive me away. There the workers of iniquity are fallen. They are thrust down, and shall not be able to rise.

Hear, Yahweh, my righteous plea; Give ear to my prayer, that doesn’t go out of deceitful lips. Let my sentence come forth from your presence. Let your eyes look on equity. You have proved my heart. You have visited me in the night. You have tried me, and found nothing. I have resolved that my mouth shall not disobey. As for the works of men, by the word of your lips, I have kept myself from the ways of the violent. My steps have held fast to your paths. My feet have not slipped. I have called on you, for you will answer me, God. Turn your ear to me. Hear my speech. Show your marvelous loving kindness, you who save those who take refuge by your right hand from their enemies. Keep me as the apple of your eye. Hide me under the shadow of your wings, from the wicked who oppress me, my deadly enemies, who surround me. They close up their callous hearts. With their mouth they speak proudly. They have now surrounded us in our steps. They set their eyes to cast us down to the earth. He is like a lion that is greedy of his prey, as it were a young lion lurking in secret places. Arise, Yahweh, confront him. Cast him down. Deliver my soul from the wicked by your sword; from men by your hand, Yahweh, from men of the world, whose portion is in this life. You fill the belly of your cherished ones. Your sons have plenty, and they store up wealth for their children. As for me, I shall see your face in righteousness. I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with seeing your form.

Yahweh says to my LORD, «Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool for your feet.» Yahweh will send forth the rod of your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of your enemies. Your people offer themselves willingly in the day of your power, in holy array. Out of the womb of the morning, you have the dew of your youth. Yahweh has sworn, and will not change his mind: «You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.» The LORD is at your right hand. He will crush kings in the day of his wrath. He will judge among the nations. He will heap up dead bodies. He will crush the ruler of the whole earth. He will drink of the brook in the way; therefore he will lift up his head.

If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, let Israel now say, if it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, when men rose up against us; then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their wrath was kindled against us; then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul; then the proud waters would have gone over our soul. Blessed be Yahweh, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth. Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare. The snare is broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of Yahweh, who made heaven and earth.
