Top Christian Songs About Gratitude

We are constantly reminded to be thankful for the blessings we have been given. There is no limit to how much we can be thankful for, no matter how many days there are in the year or what kind of bird is being served for supper.

Every moment is a gift from God, and no matter how hard we try, we will never be able to fully appreciate the depth of his love for us. Even on days, we have nothing to be thankful for, remembering that Jesus gave Himself up as a sacrifice for our salvation is enough reason to be grateful.  To help us remember what matters, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best Christian songs about gratitude.

5 Christian Songs About Gratitude:

1. There Is A Redeemer By Melody Green

There Is A Redeemer - Keith Green

Before she met her life partner, Keith Green, Melody Green had looked for the truth in a variety of different places. She had some “experience” with the religion of  Buddhism as well as the drug scene of the late 1960s. In 1972, when she first met her husband, Keith Green, she had at long last found a person with whom she could discuss the meaning of life. Both of them found the answers they were looking for in a Bible study that took place in 1975.

Melody is responsible for the writing of his most well-known song, but she is also in a way responsible for Keith’s emergence as a pioneer in contemporary Christian music. You can find the simple hymn tune “There Is a Redeemer” in more than twenty-one different hymnals.

This tune portrays Christ as God’s greatest gift to humanity. Each word of the poem is followed by a powerful chorus that begins with “Thank you, oh my father…” and ends with the same phrase.

2. Once Again By Matt Redman

Matt Redman - Once Again

At the height of the worship boom in 1998, when the song “Once Again” was first made available, it became an instant hit on the spot. The song was written and performed by Matt Redman, who is also an artist.

The instant this emotional song about Jesus’ death on the cross was performed, it immediately captured the attention of the congregations that were present in the local churches.

When they begin to chant “thank you for the cross, my friend,” lovers of Christ and worshipers have already demonstrated their gratitude for the suffering and death that Jesus endured on their behalf. This is because they are acknowledging that Jesus died for them even as sinners.

One might readily draw parallels between a hymn of praise to Jesus, who is the friend of sinners, and some of the most beautiful love songs that have ever been written. Jesus is the friend of sinners. Someone who loves us so much and cares for us to the extent that they would lay down their lives to shield us, even though we are guilty of sinning, is deserving of our undying appreciation.

3. Shoulders By King And Country

for KING + COUNTRY - Shoulders (Official Music Video)

The concept that our help does not come from within ourselves is frequently emphasized as a central theme in Christian hymns of gratitude. These hymns are meant to express gratitude to God. This timeless song by KING & COUNTRY does an excellent job of expanding upon the concept further.

It is not always the case that we are filled with thoughts of thankfulness when we are put through tests, humiliations, or other forms of struggle. On the other side, human beings have a propensity to cast doubt on the plan and purpose of God, as well as question the design that God created for them.

Songs like “Shoulders” are a potent reminder that God is still battling on our behalf, even in the darkest of circumstances, and this is something that should be kept in mind at all times.

He is the source of our strength and power, and He listens attentively to our pleas for help because He is the fountainhead from which we take it. We serve a God who is attentive to us and who has a plan for us, despite everything that takes place in our lives and, even as sinners we do not deserve the goodness of the Almighty in our lives.

Despite these things, God has a plan for each of us. That is something that we should be thankful for, so thank you JESUS.

4. Praise You In This Storm By Casting Crowns

Casting Crowns - Praise You In This Storm (Official Lyric Video)

As was the case when we were talking about the song “Shoulders” by KING AND COUNTRY earlier, there are moments when life does not make any sense, yet we are still expected to be appreciative. Casting Crowns’ song “Praise You In The Storm” does an excellent job at conveying how we feel when confronted with trials and difficult circumstances.

It is simple to adopt such a frame of mind, as evidenced by the statement “I believe; help my unbelief!” made by the father of a kid who was possessed in Mark 9.

One of their most moving hymns about giving gratitude to God, “Thankful,” acknowledges both the positive and negative aspects of life while confirming that God is a wonderful Father and most deserving of our praise. This makes the hymn one of the most powerful songs about giving gratitude.

5. Phillips, Craig, And Dean’s Top Of My Lungs

Phillips, Craig & Dean - Top Of My Lungs (Pseudo Video)

This song is yet another song that serves as a reminder for us to express our gratitude to God. When our lives become more predictable, there is a greater risk that we will become blasé and forget about God until something unexpected happens. Until then, however, we may miss out on some amazing blessings (or so we think).

Since God is in charge of everything that happens in our lives, we owe it to him to give him the praise and thanks that are due to him every day.

Not only did God pardon us for the wrongs we had done, but he also provided us with a second opportunity to live. We mustn’t become complacent and overlook the blessings that have been showered upon us. Definetly one of the best christian songs about gratitude.
