7 inspiring songs about faith
This post is all about faith songs: songs to encourage you in your faith, to remind you of God’s faithfulness and maybe even challenge you in your faith. We always try to include a range of genres & musical styles in our playlists, which is what we have done here – really hope you enjoy them.
Let us know what you think in the comments below – perhaps you have some personal favourite songs about faith or songs that speak of God’s faithfulness to us? We’d love to hear from you.
1. Casting Crowns - Voice Of Truth
This classic song from Casting Crowns
explores the theme of stepping out in faith & uses the biblical examples of Peter stepping out onto the water to meet Jesus & David slaying Goliath with just a sling & a stone. Sometimes we think that we have to do these things alone alone but this song is a powerful reminder that faith in God means that He is with us, speaking that voice of truth.
2. Salt of the Sound - Calling
This song explores a different aspect of faith: the challenge of doing what is comfortable vs. taking that leap of faith to follow your calling. As Christians, we are called to make a difference & to change the world - individually, your part is small, but collectively, we are His body. No-one said it would be easy, but who are we & what are we doing if we don’t play our part?
3. Mike Clark Band - Holy Hands
This song by the Mike Clark Band
also featured in our Songs for Good Friday playlist
- we think it is a great song for personal & sung worship. In this sung prayer, the lyrics talk about giving all you are to God & remind us to put our faith & trust in Him alone. One of our favourites!
4. Sara Groves - Maybe there’s a loving God
Ok, I’m going to be really honest here. This song explores a faith battle that I have really struggled with - God as creator vs. the world coming into being by pure accident with no divine creator (which ‘the world’ likes to tell us is the answer all the time). This song really spoke to me & helped me in my faith - I urge you to have a listen & explore the themes for yourself.
5. Rend Collective - My Lighthouse
It seems that their are many folk-country songs that speak of hope. This up-tempo song by Rend Collective
reminds us that God is like a lighthouse leading us in the darkness & through the storms to safety, if we continue to let him. It is a gentle reminder to keep our faith through difficult times, as He will lead us home if we put our faith in Him.

6. Mandisa - Stronger
Although this is very different to most of the other songs we have featured here, in true Mandisa
style, you can’t help but feel uplifted by her lyrics & the strength in her voice that sing of the hope there is for us if we just hold on a little bit longer - we know God is using our situations to make us stronger. I love this song - in a dance around the room for God kind of way - I wonder if Mandisa has ever done that...she seems like a dance around the room kinda girl.
7. Tara Leigh Cobble - Faithful Still
‘When all else fails, and all else will, You are faithful still. You are faithful still’ - A powerful reminder for us all.
