Worship Songs about Peace
Life can feel overwhelming, which is why Jesus specifically reminded us, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid" (John 14:27). Here is a list of songs that help you focus your heart on His peace.

During stressful times we worry and fret and our emotions start to swerve out of control. Our minds get so lost in the dark unknown that it triggers fear and anxiety. The more we think about a tough situation, the more anxiety takes hold of our life and drags us down further. Christian music takes our minds off the chains that hold us down and places on thoughts on the truths of Jesus Christ. These songs have themes of sabbath and rest to engage a congregation or small group in worship with either one instrument or a worship band.
As believers our joy is deep and firm, it is supernatural, it flourishes in the midst of pain and suffering, it hopes, it is a result of abiding in Christ. 1 Peter 1:8 reminds us that even though we do not see Christ, we trust him and rejoice with an inexpressive and glorious joy.These are all songs that focus on joy.
We were not created for isolation. God intended for our souls to draw close to one another, and to be sustained by the eternity of a relationship with Him. His presence is eternal, His mercy is unchangeable, and His intimacy intercedes through His love for each of us. Through the healing and the hurting, we are pursued by a faithful friend in Jesus Christ. Here is a list of songs focusing on friendship.
We worship God because He is holy and worthy of worship. Psalm 96 tells us to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. The holiness we are called in our own lives to comes out of our relationship with the one and only holy God. The songs in this list focus on the Holiness of God.
Assurance in the Christian life is two-fold. Our assurance of salvation comes from Christ’s saving work that purchased and granted to us and keeps the fulfillment of all his promises to us (2 Peter 1:4.) Our assurance of faith that Hebrews 10 speaks of is both a gift of God and something we must grow. It comes from walking through trials, conflict, sorrow, hardship that refines, strengthens and deepens our trust in God. Here are songs about assurance.
Against the adversary of temptation, we are delivered from the shackles of the flesh. Our submission is our passage to freedom, and God reminds us our turmoil produces endurance and strength. This is the sacrifice we make when we renounce ungodly passions, and our victory is being held upright next to the King of Kings. Here is a list of songs focusing on addiction.
The standard of righteousness is God, and if we are in Christ, our righteousness is Jesus' own, imputed to us. "That I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. Philippians 3:8b-9. Here is a list of songs about righteousness.
We are apart of God’s precious household, crafted through the honor of being adopted by Him. The church is the extension of His Kingdom, built on the foundation of love and secured by the bones of dependability. As we unify and honor our earthly family, God prepares a place for us in His heavenly household. Here is a list of songs focusing on family.
Compassion is another powerful characteristic of God. Every time Jesus was moved with compassion, something powerful happened. “And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them . . .” (Matthew 14:14) When facing a tough situation, human nature is easily drawn to sympathy, but the reality is that sympathy is not always what is needed. Sympathy identifies with the problem or hurt, but it is not focused on the solution, helping you move forward. Compassion, along with God’s grace, is a powerful force that activates His answers for your life.
One of the things I love about this righteous man in Psalm 112 is that he clearly lives a life that goes well beyond himself. When it says, “he has dispersed abroad,” it speaks of one whose life has a far-reaching and wide-ranging impact on others There are those who never seem to move forward in life because their vision is small. Instead of continuing to grow and expand their life, they prefer to be a big fish in a small pond. In doing so, they limit their own potential. Use these charts and arrangements to engage in moving the Church forward in vision for those that are lost and broken.
Jesus said to abide in Him and He in you (John 15:4) and that the Lord wants those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). These songs engage personal or congregational reflection throughout church worship. Download the chord charts, piano/vocal sheets, or orchestrations to support your worship ministry in praise.
God has given us many gifts, and although He calls us to serve others and lay our lives down to partner with Him in seeing the reality of Heaven established here on Earth, we are also supposed to enjoy the journey! Our jobs, our families, our health, our church community: these are just some of the gifts God has given us. Whilst worshipping Him with them, we can enjoy, have fun and find happiness from them too! Doing so is an expression of faith that He is who He says He is, our loving Father.
