Hillsong United has brought us some of the most worshipful songs of our day. Simply one of my favorite for entering into a time of praise and worship. Their latest Empires is going to bring you more into an element of gentle worship. The songs aren't loud and boastful, but more subdued and intimate. These will be the songs you sing as you enter more into a worship setting as you seek the face of Jesus. Hands raised high, seeking Jesus and His peace and grace.
Here Now (Madness
Say the Word
Heart Like Heaven

Prince of Peace
Closer Than You Know
The only one I have heard so far played on our radio station was "Touch the Sky". Title track "Empires" sings about us being empires of light and clay, in the image of our Maker. It was a very poetic song and I predict it will soon be on the radio as well.
Another of my favorites was "When I Lost My Heart to You", with the main refrain being "You have my heart".
Intimate worship that you can easily play in your home and enter into a time with the Lord. I love when an entire CD is one you can be restful with. That you can use it to just be still. "Rule" was a little bit faster of a song, but still not as upbeat as some of Hillsong's past compilations.
