On the Rise is dedicated to songs that may be outside the top 10, but are rising quickly. These are songs often going unnoticed—and we think they deserve some attention.
This week, we have three songs notably on the rise:
1. “Forever Reign” by Hillsong
Current ranking: #6, previous ranking: #17
This song leaped in to the top 10 this week—all the way to #6 in the charts! “Forever Reign” paints a picture of us running into the embracing arms of the unconditionally loving God. Through all the ups, downs, doubts, and joys in our lives, God is forever the same—loving, holy, and victorious.
You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You’re the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost its sting
Oh, I’m running to Your arms,
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign
2. “O Praise Him” by David Crowder Band
Current ranking: #57, previous ranking: #240
Raising nearly 200 spots in a week, “O Praise Him” draws us into worship by encouraging us to look forward to how we will worship in heaven—forever, singing in praise to our God. The song calls out for our “song” and “love” to rise—it will surely raise you in worship of holiness of the King.
Turn your ear to heaven and hear the noise inside
The sound of angels’ awe
The sound of angel’s songs
And all this for a King
We could join and sing
All to Christ the King
3. “The More I Seek You” by Christ For The Nations, Gateway Worship, and Kari Jobe
Current ranking: #93, previous ranking: #200
“The More I Seek You” rose over 100 spots this week. This song refreshes us in the deep relational intimacy we have with Jesus. It’s a calling out simply to be near him.
I wanna sit at Your feet
Drink from the cup in Your hand
Lay back against You and breathe
Feel Your heart beat
This love is so deep
It’s more than I can stand
I melt in Your peace
