There are good songs. Then there are great songs. And then there are the essential ones: the songs that seem to be able to both define a time and inspire an army of Christians. And this compilation boasts thirty of them.
Songs like You Never Let Go by Matt Redman, Everlasting God by Brenton Brown and Vicky Beeching’s Yesterday, Today and Forever articulate – and introduce - a connection with God that goes beyond the typical. Delirious’ My Soul Sings, God Of This City by Bluetree and Ben Cantelon’s Not Ashamed are everyday anthems strong enough to storm many a city wall.
Add to that list songs like Jesus Saves by Tim Hughes and Hillsong United’s To The Ends of the Earth, and you have a perfect idea why this two CD worship collection could only ever be tagged with one single word: Essential.
