I love music! Music has a soothing and calming power. You can see an example of that in 1 Samuel ; a distressing spirit of the Lord tormented Saul, and it was only when David played the harp that Saul found peace. Music still has that effect today; when I am distressed, listening to music cheers me up, relaxes me, refreshes me, and changes my mood. I started listening to Christian music three years ago when Jesus saved me. If secular music encouraged me before, Christian music took it to another level.

One of the major ways Christians have let the Word of God dwell in us richly throughout history has been through singing hymns in church gatherings. Hymns are beloved because they share the richness of the gospel and the beauty of Jesus Christ in a catchy and memorable way. Hymns and other truth-filled songs have the habit of ministering to our hearts, giving us hope and faith. They teach us theology, help us minister to each other, unite us with Christians from the past centuries, and take our eyes off ourselves and put them on Jesus. This purpose of this post is to encourage you by sharing classic and modern Christian hymns and their gospel-centered lyrics. Holy, holy, holy!
As Christians, we know that the only time that we will have true peace on earth is when Jesus, the Prince of Peace returns to set up His kingdom. In the meantime, we sing about peace and pray for that day. Here are ten great Christian songs about peace that I have come to know. They are listed in no particular order. As a child, I sang this song often and as an adult, it has become one that is regularly requested by families who mourn the death of their loved ones. Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me. Written and performed by Laura Story, this lovely ballad gives us hope as we keep our eyes upon the Lord. This is a lovely upbeat song by Todd Vaters that reminds us how very precious we are to God. We are encouraged to rest in Him.
