One of my favorite worship leaders / singers is Matt Redman. Matt is from the UK, but since I first heard "The Heart of Worship" on an old-school Passion album, I have always been encouraged and challenged by his music. I have had the privilege of watching him lead worship 4-5 times, and have always felt drawn to worship God in a passionate way. I also appreciate his (1) attention to Scripture, (2) ability to write a variety of songs, and (3) humility.
So, here are my favorite Redman songs (the ones that are linked are linked to iTunes and for 99 cents they can be yours).
- Difficult times: You Never Let Go and Blessed Be Your Name
- Missions: All Over the World and Missions Flame
- Cross: Greatest Gift and Once Again
- Worship: The Heart of Worship and Befriended and Holy Moment
- Response: I Will Offer Up My Life and Praise Awaits You
