Most of our song lists at PraiseCharts are based on song characteristics and data from customer activity. This list is different. These are hand-selected favorites from our staff. Our team of programmers, administrators, arrangers, and designers took a moment to browse through the list of songs recently added to PraiseCharts, and pick out their favorites. No data — just pure, personal preference! These are songs that we love to sing, play, and listen to. We hope you love them as much as we do. We'll update this often. You might be surprised and find a hidden jewel.

Hymns are still being written today, with an intentional focus on penning timeless melodies, multiple verses full of rich theology, and sometimes a chorus to tie the themes together. Here is a list of our most popular modern worship hymns, generally written after 1990. Who knows, maybe we'll still be singing some of these songs in the 2100s.
