Each Wednesday, we feature songs that are making their way up Proclaim Charts with On the Rise. Whether these songs are new, suddenly relevant, or simply making another appearance, we think these songs deserve some attention.
Here are three songs notably rising this week:
1. “Man of Sorrows” by Hillsong Live
Current ranking: #73, previous ranking: #171
This song rose nearly 100 spots this week! “Man of Sorrows” is a reference to Isaiah 53, which tells us that Jesus has become sorrowful to take away our sorrows—“and with his wounds we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5). Grounded in Scripture, this is a celebratory song of our victorious king.
Oh that rugged cross my salvation
Where your love poured out over me
Now my soul cries out hallelujah
Praise and honor unto thee
2. “The Only Name (Yours Will Be)” by Benji and Jenna Cowart
Current ranking: #84, previous ranking: #236
“The Only Name” is a tribute to the all-consuming, all-satisfying love of God. It’s a testament to Jesus being everything we need. This song rose an incredible 152 spots this week!
Yours is the name the name that has saved me
Your mercy and grace the power that forgave me
And your love is all I’ve ever needed
3. “Days of Elijah” by Robin Mark
Current ranking: #53, previous ranking: #128
This song, originally written to be a song to signal hope, rose quickly in the charts this week. Robin Mark tells us extensively the story behind his writing of “Days of Elijah.” This song gives joy to all who listen, painting a picture of jubilee.
Behold he comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet call
Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes
