Songs about the love of God have been a staple of Christian worship for centuries.
For just about as long as people have been praying to God and exalting the Lord Jesus, we have also been singing to and about their glory.
After all, what more beautiful and fitting tribute could we give God and his only son than to lift our voices not just in prayer, but in beautiful, triumphant song.
With that in mind, here are ten amazing songs about the love of God that are sure to fill your heart with joy.
The Love of God by MercyMe
This beautiful song takes us through a brief reminder of how God’s love manifests — he gave his son to save us from the sin that began with Adam and Eve.
Reckless Love by Cory Asbury
This powerful tune reminds us that God was there with us, guiding us and those we love, before there even was an us.
He was always there, and always will be.
Unending Love by Hillsong Worship
More than any treasure on earth, God’s love is the precious force that lifts us up and makes us whole. This sweeping and moving song reminds of this powerful love and the duty we have to seek it above all else, and to return it as best we can.
God is Love by Ali Auburn
This stirring and sometimes chilling song is a plea to God to help the singer be a better person — stronger, more understanding, better able to withstand slings and arrows without retaliation.
With a voice that’s reminiscent of Jewel, but with a country twinge, Ali Auburn delivers a powerful original spiritual.
10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman
This haunting 2011 melody is backed by a chorus that could very well number 10,000 (OK, probably not really … but it’s voluminous and stirring).
Another song that connects you with the Holy Spirit and helps you revel in His glory.
Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong United
Another haunting and stirring song, with an invocation for God to help the speaker/singer reach deeper, reach higher to do his will.
Perfect Love (Mary’s Song) by Darlene Zschech
This video combines scenes from The Passion of the Christ with a beautiful song about the coming and sacrifice of Jesus to remind us of the ultimate sacrifice God made in the name of his love for us.
Goodness Of God by Bethel Music
This powerful song has a strong folk rock vibe, with lyrics that extol the steadfastness of God’s love and goodness, and professing our love back to our creator. A beautiful tribute to God and Jesus.
God So Loved by Hillsong Worship
A simple but beautiful song praising God and the love he bestowed upon us by sacrificing his only son to offer us salvation. This tune is part of an album called There Is More put out by Hillsong Worship.
Nobody Loves Me Like You by Chris Tomlin
“Nobody loves me like you love me, Jesus” is the refrain that runs throughout this song, and it’s a fitting entry in our list here.
In fact, it’s really what this list is all about — celebrating the divine love that stands above all others.
