Lindsay Terry contacted me with a comment on the most popular worship songs in America. Although CCLI and Integrity have their very useful lists of their most popularly used songs, they can't cover all of the rich hymn and worship music heritage not only of past decades, but through past centuries. Yes, there are still worship songs popular today from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, so familiar to us that we easily overlook their influence and widespread use.

Mr. Terry referred me to an article in Today's Christian, The Ten Best Worship Songs. Notice that the title says best, not most used, so we're talking about quality for all time, not popularity over a few years.

Lindsay also has a weekly column in J&J Music's The Communicator, Stories Behind the Songs, interviews with prominent Christian composers through the lens of one of their best-loved songs. You can read his interview with Tim Hughes and the story behind Here I Am to Worship in his current column. Many of his past interviews, including one with Dan Gardner (his story behind My Life Is In You, Lord), can be found in his book, published by Integrity, The Sacrifice of Praise.
