Meaningful Christian Songs

True, there are a LOT of songs that mean something to me. When it comes to music, it is known I love musical theatre and contemporary christian music. I decided to talk specifically about the songs from Fran McKendree (not the other meaningful christian songs). From 2003-2008 and 2012, he led our music on Parish Retreats. He really meant a lot to me and our church. The ones with the * are the ones I remember the most learning from 2003-2008. The others were ones I either discovered through the Parish Retreats, by Winterlight or by the CDs alone.

  1. Meg, this is a beautiful list. One of the titles reminded me of a song Eric Clapton wrote sung by Steve Winwood when they were part of a rock-n-roll group Blind Faith. It is called “The Presence of the Lord” and Clapton said he wanted Winwood to sing it as he had a better voice, which I think adds color to the song. Here is a link to a live performance and the lyrics. Keith
