Anyone who has led worship or attended a modern church service knows that there are way more slow worship songs than fast ones.
Even though slow worship songs are fairly easy to come across, I thought I would put together a list of some of my favorites, a lot like I did for fast worship songs.
I chose songs that I think would work well and be easy to play for worship leaders and teams who are serving in their local church.
There’s an unexplained power hiding within many slow worship songs. Some songs start off very laid back — but then you get to the middle of the song and suddenly there’s unstoppable power coming from the midst of the worshipers. It’s hard to explain but very real.
While there is a place for all tempos and styles in today’s church services, here are some slow songs that will ignite an attitude of power and worship in your church or youth group.
Gratitude – Brandon Lake
I could listen to this song on repeat for hours. Brandon Lake really hit on something here. This song is better than just about any worship song, CCM, or even secular song out there in 2023. It’s one that you can use for personal worship, and simple enough for your worship band to learn and introduce to your church. Congregations need to be singing this song.

I Speak Jesus – Charity Gayle
This song also made my list of best female-led worship songs due to its powerful message and delivery. Charity Gayle is one of today’s most inspiring worship leaders with her unique, simple voice and straightforward worship.

Grace Greater – Travis Cottrell
If you like modern hymns, you’ll love Grace Greater. Travis Cottrell created a hymn for today’s generation that harkens back a hundred years while still feeling fresh and relevant. It’s simple enough to teach in just a few minutes, whether you’re introducing a new song to your worship band or your congregation.

Jireh – Elevation & Maverick City
I encourage anyone to check out all of Maverick City’s music because just about all of it is worthy of making all sorts of “best of” lists. This particular song, Jireh,

Holy Forever – Bethel Music
Bethel music rarely disappoints, bringing a new sound and lyrical depth to their music. Holy Forever is no exception. You could imagine singing this song within the gates of heaven.

Trust In God – Elevation
If your church is going through uncertain times, this is a good one to introduce. It speaks of God’s ability to make a way where there is no way.

I plan to add more songs soon, but this is a good start for anyone wanting great songs for personal worship or to introduce to your church. Feel free to suggest additional songs in the comments.
