In trying to come up with my ten favorite worships songs, I couldn't. That's why this is a list of my eleven favorites. The following are all songs that, when I hear them, put me straight into ,worship mode, singing along with music and remembering all the blessings God has bestowed upon me. These are songs that give me goosebumps or bring tears to my eyes whenever I hear them. These are songs that lift me up whenever I am feeling down. These are songs I listen to when I need to feel His presence. These are songs that I know I will never tire of hearing.

        Dave - Sounds like you have quite the musical background! Has it been your experience that Catholic Churches are singing more contemporary music? I was pleasantly surprised last week when we attended a Catholic Church's mass for the first time that the music was more contemporary. Thanks for you comment!

        You have some really nices choices of music, as a Catholic choir singer with two choirs and two fundamentally different musical approaches one being Classical the other being contemporary, I have the pleasure of singing and performing both kinds of music, and I enjoy both respectively.

        Thank you Cari for showcasing some great worship songs--When my younger son called me from the pavement after being thrown from his motorcycle which was hit by a car running a red light, I punched in "King of Glory" and prayed and praised God for a miracle as I sped to the scene. I asked that both he and his fiancé would be spared. When I got there the paramedics were there and although he was thrown several feet without his helmet, and she ten feet away, abrasions and a few broken bones were their only injuries. His head never hit the pavement and the massive motorcycle following them and spinning out of control between the two of them, miraculously missed them entirely. He is the King of Glory.

        This is great! I too love these songs, especially Mighty to Save and Breathe!! Actually I just published a hub including the song Mighty To Save; it always encourages me when I remember His mighty power and how He is gracious enough to save me even when I screw up daily or face difficulities in life.
