One of My Favorite Songs

This is one of my favorite songs, and I had never heard it performed by Hillsong United before. Imagine my surprise when I did a little sleuthing and found out Hillsong United's lead singer, Brooke Fraser Ligertwood, wrote it!

I thought I'd share it with you in case you're unfamiliar. This version of "Lead Me to the Cross" is performed by Hillsong United, but you may have heard it sung by Francesca Battistelli or Chris & Conrad. Each artist brings something different to it, and I have to admit, I haven't heard a version that didn't move me.

Enjoy!!



What is one of your favorite songs? Has it been sung by different artists?

Have a terrific Monday!

  1. Love that song!! You know, I usually don't know if a group or artist is the first to perform a song. Isn't it interesting how each one who performs it brings their own style to it?

    1. Same here, Lindsay! I've heard a few songs cross over from Contemporary Christian to Country, and I never know who the original artist is! :)

  9. As a huge Hillsong fan, I didn't realize anyone else sang it besides Brooke. LOL! I love singing that one anytime of year, but mostly during Lent. Right now, I'm hooked on a song called "How Love Wins" by Steven Curtis Chapman. The lyrics come from the perspective so the thief on the cross who realized who realized who Jesus was at the last moment. He longs to carry His Savior home, but realizes that His Savior will have to carry him. Just WOW. So, so true of us.

  10. Hi, Jill. I just had to come back and comment. There was another song I couldn't think of when I did your comment. It's "Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing." I just love it. It's by some guy with a wonderful voice and I don't know who it is. Do you?
