Once again, I hadn’t heard any of the nominated songs before this week. They’re a nice group of songs.
“God Really Loves Us,” performed by Crowder featuring Dante Bowe and Maverick City Music; Dante Bowe, David Crowder, Ben Glover & Jeff Sojka, songwriters:
“So Good,” performed by DOE; Chuck Butler, Dominique Jones & Ethan Hulse, songwriters:

“Fear Is Not My Future,” performed by Maverick City Music & Kirk Franklin; Kirk Franklin, Nicole Hannel, Jonathan Jay, Brandon Lake & Hannah Shackelford, songwriters. There are several videos of this on YouTube and I chose the shortest one for this article:
“Holy Forever,” performed by Chris Tomlin; Jason Ingraham, Brian Johnson, Jenn Johnson, Chris Tomlin & Phil Wickham, songwriters:
“Hymn of Heaven,” performed by Phil Wickham; Chris Davenport, Bill Johnson, Brian Johnson & Phil Wickham, songwriters:
It took me a few listenings to choose a favorite. I think the best of these is “God Really Loves Us.” The chorus is so good. I am pulled into worship. I can just imagine a congregation belting out, “Hallelujah! We are not alone! God really loves us! God really loves us!”
And “Hymn of Heaven” is a close second.
