30 Thanksgiving Worship Songs For Your Thanksgiving Worship Service

Our houses of worship often host special services. My local church has one the Sunday night before the Thanksgiving holiday. Most churches that I know will celebrate this incredible theme, on point with millions together in our nation. We truly are a blessed nation and blessed to live here in America! It is a special opportunity to pray and sing this month with Thanksgiving on our lips and in our hearts.

30 Thanksgiving Worship Songs For Your Thanksgiving Worship Service

Thanksgiving tradition isn’t only about the turkey as we all know. Just to remind us, Our truly American Thanksgiving holiday is traced to 1621 when the Plymouth colonists and local Native American tribe Wampanoga partook together in a feast for autumn. Each colony and state celebrated this tradition for a couple hundred years before Civil War president Abraham Lincoln proclaimed that we celebrate a day of thanks in November. Part of our practice as a secular nation is surely inspired by our tradition as Christians to offer thanks. Thanksgiving is an act of worship as central as one can find. We are grateful for a God who has met us where we are in Christ, saving us from sin and death in the Cross. We are grateful for the fact that blessings truly come from God, our creator. Living in gratitude is such a virtue of not only worship but of practicality. When we live with thanksgiving as our attitude we see everything differently.

Here at Sharefaith, we thought it would be great to offer you 30 Thanksgiving Worship Songs songs you could use in a Thanksgiving worship service. The opportunity in sharing these Thanksgiving worship songs is that you can also use these for your personal devotional times this month and beyond. It is also nice to know where the songs come from and who wrote them, so we included that information as well as links to music. The Thanksgiving worship songs are listed in three categories–hymns, contemporary, and modern. Hymns are traditional songs many know of, but maybe some of you never heard of. The poetry of these alone are worth the read of the lyrics but some of these have also been put to modern or contemporary settings. Contemporary songs are choruses over the last 20 or so years that have been sung in church. Modern songs denote songs that are new to the scene. Here are the top 30 Thanksgiving Worship Songs:

Hymns  (8)

For the Beauty of the Earth

Lyrics by Folliot Sanford Pierpoint (1864)

Music by Conrad Rocker (1838)

Mr. Pierpoint originally meant this as a song for the Eucharist (Communion) where Christ’s sacrifice was highlighted. This is appropriate as the word “Eucharist” means thanksgiving as the song later become known for. Sometimes it works best to keep some tradition in your services and this song is a classic that many who don’t even attend church may have heard in movie soundtracks.

Now We Thank We All Our God

Lyrics/Music by Martin Rinkart (1636)

The author, Martin Rinkart, wrote this song during the horrendous 30 Years’ War and was the only clergy left alive in his city of Ellenburg. Due to the disease and famine in his city, it meant he had to perform 40-50 burials per day. In this midst of such, he wrote this amazing song of thanksgiving.

Praise To The Lord The Almighty

Author: Joachim Neander (1680); Translator: Catherine Winkworth (1863)

I love the hymn writers question: “Praise to the Lord, above all things so wondrously reigning; sheltering you under his wings, and so gently sustaining! Have you not seen all that is needful has been sent by his gracious ordaining?” God is in control. But, his control is to defend us and shelter us! That is good news.

Rejoice, the Lord Is King

By Charles Wesley (1744)

It is a comfort to know that Christ conquered death as well as sin! Verse three of this Charle’s Wesley hymn says, “His kingdom cannot fail, He rules o’er earth and heav’n; The keys of death and hell, Are to our Jesus giv’n: Lift up your heart, Lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!”

Performed by Tommy Walker and company

Sing Praise to God Who Reigns Above

Translator: Frances Elizabeth Cox; Author: Johann Jakob Schütz (1675)

Our work brings us to exhaustion at times. However, when we are thankful we gain strength by the proper placement of God’s reign in our lives, especially in our work. In verse three, the song says the following: “Thus all my toilsome way along, I sing aloud thy praises, that earth may hear the grateful song my voice unwearied raises.”

All Creatures of Our God and King

Paraphraser: William H. Draper; Author: St. Francis of Assisi (1225)

It is enriching in our worship to know that a song we can sing in a modern musical setting originated from the 12th century by St. Francis of Assisi. Thanks to William Draper, the song was brought into the 19th century. Today, we still sing this—even in  21st-century style. I must note that this is yet another worship song that calls us to worship the Trinity. The 6th stanza reads, “Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son, and praise the Spirit, Three in One.”


By Thomas Ken (1674)

This well-known hymn is sung often at the offering. This song is rich in that it involves the Trinity in our worship of thanksgiving. My best memories may be like yours. This song sang a cappella in the church always seemed to bring a sense of awe as I grew up in the church. However, it is notable that it has been put to modern settings of music. What a marker of the song’s powerful message and acknowledgment of the Trinity in our worship.

Performed by Phil Wickham

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Lyrics by Robert Robinson (1758)

Music by unknown author

In 1755, Robert Robinson went to a revival meeting to heckle and make fun of the Christians but found his faith instead, by hearing a sermon that night from George Whitfield. Later, Robinson entered the ministry and penned one of our favorite hymns. Every blessing comes from God, even when we have other expectations or agendas.

Performed by Chris Rice

Contemporary Thanksgiving Worship Songs (10)

My Tribute

By Andrae Crouch

Birthed in the 1970s, “My Tribute” is one of the greatest modern gospel songs ever written and sung in churches. As far as thanksgiving, we have to ask who deserves the honor and glory. This song answers its own question, “how can I say thanks?”

Give Thanks

By Henry Smith

This song broke through right as the 1980s produced the Praise and Worship movement. Contemporary worship became mainstream with an album by Integrity Music and the rest is history. This song is still sung all over the world!

Performed by Unhindered


By Chris Tomlin

This has now become a classic. A good call to worship, this song asks us to give thanks to a God whose “love endures forever.” Verse three says this: “From the rising to the setting sun/His love endures forever/And by the grace of God/We will carry on.” No matter the circumstance, His love never fails us!

Performed by Chris Tomlin

Here I Am To Worship

By Tim Hughes

After reading Philippians chapter 2,  Tim Hughes reflected on the attitude of servanthood Christ displayed and wrote the verses to the song. How do we respond to our God when we approach him? This song offers us a posture of bowing down in humility. If Christ was humble, should not our worship also reflect that, too?

Blessed Be Your Name

By Beth Redman, Matt Redman

There are few songs that appropriately deal the emotional and circumstances around laments. This song provides that. Not all of us are coming to a Thanksgiving service with gleefulness. Loss is a real part of our lives this side of heaven. As we bring our offering of thanks, something we need to honestly offer it in the pain our very real circumstance.

Performed by Matt Redman

Worthy is the Lamb (Hillsong)

By Darlene Zschech

The writer of the bat calls us to remember the sacrifice of Christ. “Thank You for the cross Lord/Thank You for the price You paid/Bearing all my sin and shame/In love You came and gave amazing grace.” Shame is a concept we often forget to address in worship. If we are free from sin, are we not also free from shame?

Performed by Hillsong United

Thank You

By Ben Fielding, Reuben Morgan

The writers from Hillsong remind us of the promise and favor we have in God with this song. “Thank You for Your promise/Thank You for Your favor/Thank You for Your love/Everything You’ve done for me.” A promise is not something we see in the present, so as we worship this Thanksgiving we need to hold on to the promises of Christ.

Performed by Hillsong United

Once Again

By Matt Redman

Matt Redman gets us to think about the cost of Christ’s gift to us. This song is a beautiful prayer, full of the emotional responses we have when we remember the Cross. “Once again I look upon the cross/Where You died/I’m humbled by Your mercy/And I’m broken inside/Once again I thank You/Once again I pour out my life.”

Performed by Matt Redman

I Will Enter His Gates

By Brian Houston

Psalm 100:4 says to “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” We could not bear put a list together without a song that quotes one of the most famous Thanksgiving passages.

You Are Good

By Israel Houghton

We cannot forget Psalm 100:5, either. “For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” Hougton’s vibrant song gets us to our feet to proclaim our purpose as God’s people.

Modern Thanksgiving Worship Songs (12)

10,000 Reasons

By Jonas Myrin, Matt Redman

Matt Redman describes “10,000 Reasons” this way on the Christian Post: “It’s about the many, many reasons there are to worship God. And of course when I say ‘10,000 Reasons’ that’s obviously a huge poetic understatement. When it comes to worship, there is an eternity of reasons to respond to God and His worth…”

Performed by Matt Redman

Glory to God Forever

By Steve Fee, Vicky Beeching

Thanksgiving means we offer all we are to the one who provides all good things to us. In an interview, Steve Fee says, “The massive thought is that everything in our lives gives glory to God. It strikes the very core of why we were made. I believe this is a song that was already in us to say that God created us to give glory to Him.” (

Your Grace is Enough

By Matt Maher

Matt Maher was born in Canada and a Catholic wrote this song that is still a mainstay in many houses of worship around the world. The idea of God’s grace being sufficient means we did not work for it. We are thankful for what God has done, not what we have accomplished.

Thank You God For Saving Me

By Martin Smith

Martin Smith is well known as the lead vocalist and songwriter for the band Delirious. “What can I give to You/What can I offer to a King.For all the love You’ve shown/For all Your mercy over me” says Martin in the lead lyrics, calling us to an attitude of gratefulness in our lives.

Performed by Delirious

Thank You for Healing Me

by Redman

Matt Redman invites us to sing a very personal prayer about our personal need for healing, another important aspect of Thanksgiving. Redman says “I was dead to the truth of You/But my healing was in Your wounds” to lead us to humbly respond in worship.

Love Came Down 

by Ben Cantelon

UK Worship Leader Ben Cantelon leads us to remember we didn’t reach up. God reached down. The Bridge of the song reads: “Love came down and rescued me/I thank/You yes I thank You/I once was blind but now I see/I see You yes I see You”

For All You’ve Done (I Worship You)

By Vertical Church Band

Essential worship artist Vertical Worship Band is based at the Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago. The idea of not only thanking God for the past but also the future is present in this song. With uncertainty, we can look to the past and trust God with our future.

Performed by the Vertical Church Band

Thank You Jesus For the Cross 

By Vertical Church Band

Harvest Bible Chapel gives us this sweet confession of thanks, “Thank You Jesus for the Cross.” Confession is part of thanksgiving. We must offer our honest, sinful selves to our Savior. The grace we have spurs us to be thankful, hopefully not just in song but in our daily lives.

Performed by Vertical Church Band

We Give You Thanks

By Leslie Jordan, David Leonard, Jason Ingram

Duo All Sons and Daughters recently released this anthem of thanks. We thank God as a Creator. This traditional theme of thanksgiving is presented will in this song of prayer and praise.

Performed by All Sons and Daughters

Good Good Father

By Pat Barrett

“Good Good Father” has become widespread in our houses of worship all over the globe. I think the reason may be that we needed in this moment in time a reminder that our God is indeed a good God. Our Father defines who we are. That is comforting in a world where we think we have to follow the pack.

Performed by Kalley Heiligenthal

This is Amazing Grace

By Jeremy Riddle Josh Farro Phil Wickham

Verse three says this: “Who brings our chaos back into order/Who makes the orphan a son and daughter/The King of Glory the King of Glory” This is my favorite lyric in the song. God brings all things together. And, God’s aim is for us to be his son or daughter. What a powerful message in a world that seems out of control.

Performed by Jeremy Riddle

Great Are You Lord

By David Leonard, Jason Ingram, Leslie Jordan

Thanksgiving is about recognition of God as the Creator. A profound prayer can be found in this line from the song: “It’s your breath in our lungs, so we pour out our praise, pour out our praise.” At creation, we have breathed life as a race. When we receive the Spirit, we once again familiarize ourselves with that fact.

Performed by All Sons and Daughters

I love the sounds of Hezekiah Walker, Anthony Evans, Kirk Franklin, and Israel Houghton. These black gospel artists bring a power and spirit I can only dream of replicating when I lead worship.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t listen to and enjoy these songs. That’s why I put together this list of 25 black gospel songs that we should all be listening to despite our backgrounds or typical listening preferences.

Here goes.

See You Again – Anthony Evans

This song knocked me out when I first heard it. I decided this was the gospel song I was finally going to try in my church. So we got the (predominantly white) worship team together, rehearsed it like crazy. Yep, it came out like a long-lost U2 song. Nothing like the original. Even though we couldn’t replicate the song’s majesty and power, I still like listening to it often. Evans brings insane intensity and vocal prowess to this number. Whether or not you go to church or believe in God, you’ll be one step closer to the Almighty after hearing this masterpiece.

YouTube video

Way Maker – Sinach.

This is one of those songs that unexpectedly takes the world by storm. Nearly every worship band and major Christian artist has covered it by now, and it will continue its rise in 2021. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a farming town in Iowa or urban Los Angeles, or London, England or Lagos, Nigeria. You will worship like never before when you hear it.

YouTube video


Every Praise – Hezekiah Walker

You see, there’s just certain I can’t pull off when I lead worship. Like call and response. Walker performs this masterfully. He naturally calls out and leads the choir (and the onlookers in this video) with the spoken word. If I were to try this, it would sound more like Weird Al Yankovic calling out the next line of my latest polka. Props to Hez.

You Are Good – Israel Houghton

There’s a reason this guy’s named after the Promised Land. That’s exactly where he takes you with his high-energy vocals and ridiculously good guitar playing. This is one of my all-time favorite worship songs of any style. Now I only wish I could do it justice!

YouTube video


Anything Can Happen – Jonathan Nelson

You know, there’s just something about a strong worship leader. Anyone can be a song leader, but it takes a special anointing to lead people in worship. Jonathan Nelson brings worship leading to the next level with this song. He all but takes the congregation by the hand into the Lord’s presence. No matter what your background, you can learn something from this guy.

YouTube video


Shackles (Praise You) – Mary Mary

I still remember hearing this song on secular radio when it first came out. It’s a purely pop song and worship song at the same time. I’m not sure how Mary Mary did that, but I’d sure like to do that someday.

YouTube video


No Weapon – Fred Hammond

Hammond brings serious encouragement to the believer with “No Weapon.” I love it when a worship leader teaches and lifts up a congregation. God wants every worship leader to lead his people as skillfully as Hammond does here.

YouTube video


You Deserve It – JJ. Hairston & Youthful Praise

One thing that most predominantly white churches haven’t figured out yet is how to build and use a choir. In this tune, JJ Hairston uses his choir to bring a new power through call and response. Truly inspiring!

YouTube video

Your Spirit – Tasha Cobbs Leonard ft. Kierra Sheard

There’s nothing better than listening to strong women lead in worship. Leonard and Sheard absolutely wreck you with this powerhouse tune.

YouTube video


O Come to the Altar – Israel Houghton & Elevation Worship

Psalm 133:1 says “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!” (ESV). Houghton and one of my favorite bands, Elevation Worship, team up and demonstrate how the best of two genres of worship can be combined with fantastic results. Why shouldn’t worship be a unifying tool to so that congregations can better “dwell in unity”?

YouTube video

Your Love – William Murphy

Why can’t I work the stage like William Murphy? Drenched in sweat, walking every inch of the stage, speaking and singing into the lives of the congregation. In my dreams.

YouTube video


You’re Bigger – Jekalyn Carr

A tour de force about the magnitude of God, “You’re Bigger” blasts the misconception that your problem is bigger than God. I love Carr’s passion. She sings faith into existence when you don’t have any left.

YouTube video


You Are Here – William McDowell

This song is another mind-blowing example of a true worship leader at work. McDowell brings a new power as he leads his massive ensemble and congregants. The idea of call and response is an unpracticed art for me and most majority-white churches. It’s something I’d like to get better at. The first step is to have a very solid set of support vocals who can carry the tune and feel of the song, so that the leader can lead and ad lib. What an inspiration this song is.

YouTube video


Victory – Yoland Adams

Ok. Mind blown. This is one of those songs that you think about doing for about 2 seconds and then decide against it because you could never do it justice. There are so many elements here. First of all, I could never coordinate a choir to sound this good and dance like this at the same time. Second, Yolanda Adams’ stage presence is so natural and intriguing that you can’t help being pulled in. Third, I’ve never heard a strings section so funky. Once I started watching this video, I couldn’t stop!

YouTube video


I Need You Now – Smokie Norful

Smokie Norful is a testament that talent inside the church is as plentiful as it is outside. In fact, many of today’s secular stars got their start singing in church. Norful is a John Legend-like talent whose piano and vocal work in this song leave me wishing I could sound the same.

YouTube video


Awesome – Pastor Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Chicago

This is just good old-school get-you-out-of-your-seat worship.

YouTube video


To God be the Glory – Andrae Crouch

This is a classic from a pioneer in worship music. This song transcends style, background, and culture. I remember singing it in my majority-white church as a kid. This is a unique song in that it’s powerful no matter how you do it.

YouTube video

Breathe – Byron Cage

Unlike most of the other songs on this list, this is one I’ve done hundreds of times going back even to when I was leading worship in youth group. The encouraging reminder that Byron Cage’s rendition brings about is that you can put your own twist to any song and make it great. The songs of God are bigger than style and culture.

YouTube video


I Need You – Donnie McClurkin

I was really surprised when I ran into this song. It’s like a rock band meets gospel choir meets big tent revival. McClurkin isn’t afraid to lead out. Instrumentally, I think my worship band could replicate this sound. But vocally — that’s near impossible.

YouTube video


A God Like You – Kirk Franklin

There’s plenty of room in today’s worship sets for happy tunes. I’m not sure why, but most of today’s worship songs are either dirges or power ballads. Well, here’s a happy song to help fill that gap. And if I were as talented as Mr. Franklin, I might do this one in my church.

YouTube video


Good & Bad – J Moss

You know it’s a good worship song when the singer, in the middle, starts ad-libbing about when your phone stops ringing and no one wants to hang out with you. This isn’t a song, it’s a sermon. I think many worship leaders are afraid to weave teaching and encouragement into the song. J Moss is a master at the technique.

YouTube video


Alright – Lowell Pye

If I could only do this song justice, I would be feeling alright too.

YouTube video


Boasting – Lecrae + Anthony Evans

Who says worship music and rap don’t mix? Why can’t God’s people reach out with spoken word just as well as with singing? There’s no difference in God’s eyes. Rap is still a long way off from making it into mainstream worship services  (especially white-predominant churches) but it’s coming. So get ready.

YouTube video

Jesus the Same – Israel & New Breed

Yes, please! Where was I when God was handing out this kind of talent?

YouTube video


Better – Hezekiah Walker

Hezekiah Walker looks like he’s having so much fun in whatever he does. I’d love to have more joy like this when I lead worship.

YouTube video


Father Jesus – Fred Hammond

I’ll leave you with this powerhouse of a worship song. Complete with turntables, dancers, and lights. I think this is a little taste of what heaven will be like.

YouTube video

Diversity Is The Key To full worship Of God

I hope you enjoyed this totally non-comprehensive list of powerful black gospel songs. If I missed any, add them in the comments section below.

One final thought: Some people wonder why there are different styles of music.

It’s the same reason there are different kinds of people. The fullness of God can’t be expressed with one style alone. If all churches and songs were “white guy U2-style rock worship,” God wouldn’t be fully honored. Nor could we fully express God with black gospel alone.

We need these types, plus Norteño from Mexico and the rhythmic styles of Africa, and everything in between.

Revelation 7:9-10 says (ESV)

Behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

There’s nothing more beautiful in God’s ears than every style, genre, language, and culture praising him, each in their own way.

One group shouldn’t feel inadequate because they can’t pull off another style or genre. When we can’t do something, it just means that God has raised up another who will powerfully excel in it.

10 Gospel Songs to Make You Feel Like You’re in Church Whenever You Need That Feeling

Mario Tama/Getty Images

As many of us who grew up in the church community are aware, God is good all the time, and all the time, God is good. He may not come when you want him, but he’s always right on time. Great and mighty is our ... well, you get the point.

While Saturday and Sunday is the day most of us get our Jehovah on, sometimes you need a little upliftment, sanctification, enlightenment, soul stirring or praisin’ going on in the middle of the week. Hell, sometimes you need that even if you only see the inside of a church house on Easter, Christmas and funerals.

When I do go to church, usually the thing I look most forward to is the music. I’m not the most religified person on the planet (I’m spiritual or whateva) but good solid church sanging will get me every time, and by “church sangin’” I mean choirs and solid vocalists who bring me to my feet by the end of the song.

Some of y’all who ain’t so religified know what I’m talking about: You’re in church usually because you need some saving, some relief or you’ve been guilted, forced or “I’m calling your mama”-ed into going, so you typically sit there minding your own business, largely observing, going through the motions until the praise team or choir gets going and they sing that song that hits you right in the spirit. You watch everybody else stand up, but you also know that they know you ain’t been there in a minute, so why you get all holified now—but the music, fam. The music.

Eventually you give in to the music because toward the end they hit a serious praise break and your soul seems to have taken over, so you stand up and sway and clap, and by the end of the song you’re ready to buy the entire service on CD—available at the end for $10.

G/O Media may get a commission

Just me? Doubt it. Well, if you’re like me and the music is what’s provocative (you know, gets you going) and sometimes you maybe don’t know where to go to get that loving feeling, here are 10 songs that make you feel like you’re in church on any day of the week when you just need a little more Jesus in your life.

1. “It Ain’t Over,” by Maurette Brown-Clark

When she starts singing to keep progressing and moving and then punctuates all of those charges (she suggests we do a lot—I’m all in, ma’am) with an “it ain’t over,” I get all ready to hop into the car and head straight to the church house. She tells me to tell my friends and tell my family. Say no more, fam.

2. “God Is (Live),” by Derrick Wells & Legacy

Like many songs in the gospel canon, the magic happens on the tail end when, well, the choir and vocalists “take us to church.” This song is a prime example. At about the 3:30 mark, I don’t know the woman who is singing, but precious Laaaaawd she had me stop my car in traffic once and start clapping like I’d just been slain in the spirit like Faye in The Fighting Temptations.

3. “For Your Glory,” by Tasha Cobbs

If you’ve been to church and there’s a praise team, you’ve heard this song. I heard this song in church once without hearing the source song, and when I tell you my church’s praise team DID THAT. I started going to church weekly for, like, three months JUST to hear this song and the breakdown at the end. And I’m not joking at all.

This song had me SINGING actively in my pewlike seat (my church ain’t have traditional pews). Because I think Tasha knew she had a monster on her hands, the song is almost 7 minutes long, BUT she graciously got to the soul stirring around the two-minute mark. So kind of her.

4. “Incredible God, Incredible Praise,” by Youthful Praise

Just get to around the 3:50 mark of the song and let it ride out. Life-affirming and all that you need early in the morning to get the people going.

5. “Great & Mighty,” by Byron Cage

This song is 10 minutes of “keep you swaying and throwing up your right hand to God the Father almighty.” This is one of those songs I actually want to see performed live. I’ve almost gone to Ebenezer AME in Fort Washington, Md., to try to catch that action, but the way their line for parking is set up and the way that my patience for waiting in line for parking is set up, well.

6. “I’m Blessed,” by Montage Pheloan

This is one of those slower songs that I’m almost sure if I were to see it live would probably have me in tears at some point. Something about the way the lead vocalist sings just, I don’t know, got me all appreciative and thankful. And when the choir gets to singing “still blessed” over and over, I be like, you right. And when the lead vocalist (I really need to find out who these folks are) gets back to work around 4:25, I’m cooked.

7. “You Brought the Sunshine,” by the Clark Sisters

What list about feeling the spirit would be complete without at least ONE of the Clark Sisters’ songs? Get your life.

8. “All Things Through Christ,” by Earnest Pugh

This man invokes D’Angelo AND brings in a horn section during the course of this song. What can I say except you’re welcome?

9. “Mighty Good God,” by Chicago Mass Choir

Straight upbeat, back to the basics, old-school-flavor church choir, have you out of your seat clapping looking for a tambourine and ready to snatch Sister Johnson’s church hat and wig. You know Sister Johnson.

10. “Father Jesus Spirit (Live),” by Fred Hammond

I have Shazammed this song no fewer than 30 times EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THE SONG just to make sure I don’t lose my ability to hear it again and get my hype on wherever I want. I saw this performed live at church once. At the 10 a.m. service, he had folks standing on chairs.
