Song list:

One Day by Christa Wells

Sample of lyrics:

It’s hard to sing when you’re crying
Hard to leave when you’re tied down
It’s hard to sleep when you’re fighting
For your life like you are right now
There’s only so much more you can stomach
Though it’s more than you thought
And you only keep moving
By the grace of God

You’re doing one day, one breath, one prayer
One thing at a time
One word, one step, one hope
In a coming light
Don’t try to swallow the ocean
Keep doing one day
‘Til one day you’re free

Highlands (Song of Ascent) by Hillsong UNITED 

Sample of lyrics:

I will praise You on the mountain 
I will praise You when the mountains in my way
You’re the summit where my feet are
So I will praise you in the valley all the same
No less God within the shadows
And no less faithful when the night leads me astray
‘Cause You’re the heaven where my heart is
In the highlands and the heartache all the same

Whatever I walk through
Wherever I am
Your name can move mountains
Wherever I stand
And if ever I walk through
The valley of death
I’ll sing through the shadows
My song of ascent

Hallelujah Even Here by Lydia Laird 

Sample of lyrics:

Right now I feel a little overwhelmed
Right now I could really use some help
Right now I don’t feel like it is well with my soul
I’ve tried to find a way around the mess
I’ve prayed in faith that the night would end
Right here when I just can’t understand
I’ll lift my hands

Hallelujah, when the storm is relentless
Hallelujah, when the battle is endless
In the middle of the in between
In the middle of the questioning
Over every worry, every fear
Hallelujah, even here
Hallelujah, even here

You Already Know by J J Heller 

Sample of lyrics:

Everything around me seems uncertain
My weary heart can’t take much more surprise
I wish there was a point on the horizon
Something I could see with my own eyes

I need to tell you that I’m scared
I feel completely unprepared
And nothing’s what it was two weeks ago

But you already know
You already know
Everything I’m scared of
Everything I hope
You hold my tomorrow
And all tomorrow holds
You already know

Nothing is Wasted by Jason Gray 

Sample of lyrics:

The hurt that broke your heart
And left you trembling in the dark
Feeling lost and alone
Will tell you hope’s a lie
But what if every tear you cry
Will seed the ground where joy will grow
Nothing is wasted
Nothing is wasted
In the hands of our Redeemer
Nothing is wasted

Even When It Hurts (Praise Song) by Hillsong UNITED

Sample of lyrics:

Even when my strength is lost
I’ll praise You
Even when I have no song
I’ll praise You
Even when it’s hard to find the words
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

Take this mountain weight
Take these ocean tears
Hold me through the trial
Come like hope again

Trust in You by Lauren Daigle 

Sample of lyrics:

When You don’t move the mountains
I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust
I will trust in You

Rescue by Lauren Daigle 

Sample of lyrics:

You are not hidden
There’s never been a moment
You were forgotten
You are not hopeless
Though you have been broken
Your innocence stolen

I hear you whisper underneath your breath
I hear your SOS, your SOS

I will send out an army to find you
In the middle of the darkest night
It’s true, I will rescue you

Remember by Lauren Daigle 

Sample of lyrics:

In the darkest hour, when I cannot breathe
Fear is on my chest, the weight of the world on me
Everything is crashing down, everything I had known
When I wonder if I’m all alone

I remember, I remember
You have always been faithful to me
I remember, I remember
Even when my own eyes could not see
You were there, always there

Oh My Soul by Casting Crowns 

Sample of lyrics:

Oh, my soul
Oh, how you worry
Oh, how you’re weary from fearing
You lost control
This was the one thing
You didn’t see coming
And no one would blame you though
If you cried in private
If you tried to hide it away
So no one knows
No one will see
If you stop believing

Oh, my soul
You are not alone
There’s a place where fear
Has to face the God you know
One more day
He will make a way
Let Him show you how
You can lay this down

Hold On To Me by Lauren Daigle 

Sample of lyrics:

Hold on to me when it’s too dark to see You
When I am sure I have reached the end
Hold on to me when I forget I need You
When I let go, hold me again

Faithful by Brooke Fraser 

Sample of lyrics:

There’s distance in the air and I cannot make it leave
I wave my arms’ round about me and blow with all my might
I cannot sense you close, though I know you’re always here
But the comfort of you near is what I long for

When I can’t feel you, I have learned to reach out just the same
When I can’t hear you, I know you still hear every word I pray
And I want you more than I want to live another day
And as I wait for you maybe I’m made more faithful

Still / Peace by Hillsong Worship

Sample of lyrics:

Find rest, my soul
In Christ alone
And all his power
In quietness and trust

When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with you above the storm
Father, you are king over the flood
I will be still
Know You are God
I will be still
Know You are God

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus cover by Lauren Daigle 

Sample of lyrics:

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things (the thing) of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior
And life more abundant and free

And finally, only when you feel ready to sing it:

It Is Well With My Soul cover by Hillsong Worship 

Sample of lyrics:

When peace like a river
Attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot
You have taught me to say
It is well
It is well with my soul
