20 Powerful & Uplifting Worship Songs for Times of Uncertainty

Share this post:

Listen to these uplifting worship songs to encourage you during times of uncertainty.



When the world around you and the circumstances you face cause fear and anxiety to well up inside your heart, the last thing you may feel like doing is engaging in worship.

It’s our human nature, instead, to want to focus on the problem or situation. To wallow in our worry and allow it to consume us.

But mama, don’t let your fear fill a spot in your heart and mind that God deserves to be in.

There is something so very powerful about setting your worries aside and focusing on pure worship during times of uncertainty. When you lift up the Lord in praise and allow His presence to wash over you, the fear and anxiety begin to melt away.

You start to remember that God is in control of every situation, and that no amount of worry will solve anything.

There is a saying that goes like this: “Don’t tell God how big your problem is, tell your problem how big your God is.”

To help offer you some encouragement for the trial you are facing, I’ve gathered some great gospel songs that proclaim the awesomeness of God. My prayer is that you will listen to them and be encouraged and uplifted during this season of life.

Here are 20 awesome worship songs to uplift your heart during times of uncertainty:

1. You Made a Way – Travis Greene

Lyrics highlight:

“Standing here
Not knowing how we’ll get through this test
But holding onto faith
You know best
Nothing can catch You by surprise
You’ve got this figured out
And You’re watching us now

And when it looks as if we can’t win
You wrap us in Your arms and step in
And everything we need You supply
You got this in control
And now we know

That You made a way
When our backs were against the wall
And it looked as if it was over
You made a way
And we’re standing here
Only because You made a way

And you move mountains
You cause walls to fall
With Your power
Perform miracles
There is nothing that’s impossible
And we’re standing here
Only because You made a way”

2. Waymaker – Michael W. Smith (featuring Vanessa Campagna & Madelyn Berry)

Lyrics highlight:

“You are here, moving in our midst
I worship You, I worship You
You are here, working in this place
I worship You, I worship You
You are here, moving in our midst
I worship You, I worship You
You are here, working in this place
I worship You, I worship You

Waymaker, miracle worker
Promise keeper, light in the darkness
My God, that is who You are
Waymaker, miracle worker
Promise keeper, light in the darkness
My God, that is who You are

You are here, touching every heart
I worship You, I worship You
You are here, healing every heart
I worship You, I worship You
You are here, turning lives around
I worship You, I worship You
You are here, turning lives around
I worship You, I worship You

Waymaker, miracle worker
Promise keeper, light in the darkness
My God, that is who You are
Waymaker, miracle worker
Promise keeper, light in the darkness
My God, that is who You are

Even when I don’t see it, You’re working
Even when I can’t feel it, You’re working
You never stop, You never stop working
You never stop, You never stop working
Even when I can’t see it, You’re working
Even when I can’t feel it, You’re working
You never stop, You never stop working
You never stop, You never stop working”

3. Shoulders – For King and Country

Lyrics highlight:

“I look up to the mountains
Does my strength come from the mountains?
No, my strength comes from God
Who made heaven, and earth, and the mountains

When confusion’s my companion
And despair holds me for ransom
I will feel no fear
I know that You are near

When I’m caught deep in the valley
With chaos for my company
I’ll find my comfort here
‘Cause I know that You are near

My help comes from You
You’re right here, pulling me through
You carry my weakness, my sickness, my brokenness
All on Your shoulders
Your shoulders
My help comes from You
You are my rest, my rescue
I don’t have to see to believe that You’re lifting me up on Your shoulders
Your shoulders”

4. Sleep in the Storm – Unspoken Music

Lyrics highlight:

“How can I trust if I run from the trials
I’ll never rest if I don’t chase Your heart
Sometimes the path it may take me through the fire
But if it’s Your desire, lead me straight into the storm

Let the thunder be my comfort
Let the lightning be my guide
Let the waves that rise around me
Hold me gently through the night
For the winds that seem against me
Push me right into Your arms
Teach me how to sleep in the storm
How to sleep in the storm

How will I grow if I never get rained on
I’m finished fighting, tryin’ to hold back the flood
You bring me to life when who I am has been buried
So raise me up and carry me straight into the storm

Let the thunder be my comfort
Let the lightning be my guide
Let the waves that rise around me
Hold me gently through the night
For the winds that seem against me
Push me right into Your arms
Teach me how to sleep in the storm
How to sleep in the storm

Sorrows will come and go
Even still I know
It is well, it is well with my soul
Oh Lord, Your peace washes over me
You won’t let go
So it is well, it is well with my soul”

5. I Am Not Alone – Kari Jobe

Lyrics highlight:

“When I walk through deep waters
I know that You will be with me
When I’m standing in the fire
I will not be overcome
Through the valley of the shadow
I will not fear

I am not alone
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me
I am not alone
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me

In the midst of deep sorrow
I see Your light is breaking through
The dark of night will not overtake me
I am pressing into You
Lord, You fight my every battle
Oh, and I will not fear

I am not alone
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me
I am not alone
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me

You amaze me
Redeem me
You call me as Your own
You amaze me
Redeem me
You call me as Your own
You’re my strength
You’re my defender
You’re my refuge in the storm
Through these trials
You’ve always been faithful
You bring healing to my soul”

6. Praise You in This Storm – Casting Crowns

Lyrics highlight:

“I was sure by now
God, You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again
I say, ‘amen’
And it’s still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain: ‘I’m with you’
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
The God who gives
And takes away

And I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry
You raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can’t find You?
As the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain: ‘I’m with you’
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

And I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The maker of heaven and earth”

7. Chain Breaker – Zach Williams

Lyrics highlight:

“If you’ve been walking the same old road for miles and miles
If you’ve been hearing the same old voice tell the same old lies
If you’re trying to feel the same old holes inside
There’s a better life
There’s a better life

If you’ve got pain
He’s a pain taker
If you feel lost
He’s a way maker
If you need freedom or saving
He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you’ve got chains
He’s a chain breaker

We’ve all searched for the light of day in the dead of night
We’ve all found ourselves worn out from the same old fight
We’ve all run to things we know just ain’t right
And there’s a better life
There’s a better life

If you’ve got pain
He’s a pain taker
If you feel lost
He’s a way maker
If you need freedom or saving
He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you’ve got chains
He’s a chain breaker”

8. Lord, You Are My Song – Charity Gayle

*Cool side note: Charity Gayle is a very dear friend of mine, an amazingly talented Christian artist, and has played a very important role in my incredible salvation story.

Lyrics Highlight:

“Lord, You are my song
When I don’t have a melody
Lord, You are my strength
When life’s troubles make me weak

I just wanna take my time and say
You alone are worthy of my praise

Holy One
Perfect Lamb
Christ alone
The Great I Am

Unchanging, You remain the same
Eternal, words cannot explain

Lord, You are my hope
When I cannot see the day
Lord, You are my sight
Teach me how to walk by faith

It’s because of Your love,
That I am not consumed
It’s because of Your Love
I’m restored, redeemed, renewed”

9. Counting Every Blessing – Rend Collective

Lyrics highlight:

“I was blind, now I’m seeing in color
I was dead, now I’m living forever
I had failed, but You were my redeemer
I’ve been blessed beyond all measure

I was lost, now I’m found by the Father
I’ve been changed from a ruin to treasure
I’ve been given a hope and a future
I’ve been blessed beyond all measure

I am counting every blessing, counting every blessing
Letting go and trusting when I cannot see
I am counting every blessing, counting every blessing
Surely every season You are good to me

Oh, You are good to me
Oh, You are good to me

You were there in the valley of shadows
You were there in the depth of my sorrows
You’re my strength, my hope for tomorrow
I’ve been blessed beyond all measure

I am counting every blessing, counting every blessing
Letting go and trusting when I cannot see
I am counting every blessing, counting every blessing
Surely every season You are good to me

Oh, You are good to me
Oh, You are good to me

Surely Your goodness pursues me
Surely Your heart is still for me
I will remember Your mercies
All my days
Through every storm and gale

I am counting every blessing, counting every blessing
Letting go and trusting when I cannot see
I am counting every blessing, counting every blessing
Surely every season You are good to me”

10. O’ Lord – Lauren Daigle

Lyrics highlight:

“Though times it seems
Like I’m coming undone
This walk can often feel lonely
No matter what until this race is won
I will stand my ground where hope can be found
I will stand my ground where hope can be found

Oh, O’Lord O’Lord I know You hear my cry
Your love is lifting me above all the lies
No matter what I face this I know in time
You’ll take all that is wrong and make it right
You’ll take all that is wrong and make it right

Your strength is found
At the end of my road
Your grace it reaches to the hurting
Still through the tears and the questioning why
I will stand my ground where hope can be found
I will stand my ground where hope can be found

Oh, O’Lord O’Lord I know You hear my cry
Your love is lifting me above all the lies
No matter what I face this I know in time
You’ll take all that is wrong and make it right
You’ll take all that is wrong and make it right”

11. Eye of the Storm – Ryan Stevenson

Lyrics highlight:

“In the eye of the storm
You remain in control
In the middle of the war
You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me
In the eye of the storm

When the solid ground is falling out from underneath my feet
Between the black skies, and my red eyes, I can barely see
When I realize I’ve been sold out by my friends and my family
I can feel the rain reminding me

In the eye of the storm
You remain in control
In the middle of the war
You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me
In the eye of the storm

When my hopes and dreams
Are far from me
And I’m runnin’ out of faith
I see the future I picture
Slowly fade away
And when the tears of pain and heartache
Are pouring down my face
I find my peace in Jesus’ name

In the eye of the storm
You remain in control
In the middle of the war
You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me
In the eye of the storm”

12. Hills and Valleys – Tauren Wells

Lyrics Highlight:

“I’ve walked among the shadows
You wiped my tears away
And I’ve felt the pain of heartbreak
And I’ve seen the brighter days
And I’ve prayed prayers to heaven
From my lowest place
And I have held Your blessings
God, You give and take away

No matter what I have, Your grace is enough
No matter where I am, I’m standing in Your love

On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the One who set me there
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley
I know I am not alone

You’re God of the hills and valleys
Hills and Valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

I’ve watched my dreams get broken
In You, I hope again
No matter what
I know I’m safe inside Your hands

Father, You give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all You will remain
Over it all
Father, you give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all you will remain
Over it all”

13. Raise A Hallelujah – Bethel Music

Lyrics Highlight:

“I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me

I’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!

I raise a hallelujah, with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah, I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah, in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah, fear you lost your hold on me!

Just begin to raise your own hallelujah
I can’t do it for you
There’s a song written on your heart only you can sing
And when you sing enemies flee
When you sing prison walls come falling down
When you sing heaven invades the earth
So just begin to lift up your hallelujah
Raise it like a banner
Raise it like a flag
Raise it in the middle of the storm
Let it rise, let it rise
Like a symphony to the King
Everything to You, Jesus
We raise it all”

14. Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) – Hillsong United

Lyrics Highlight:

“You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior”

15. Psalm 23 (I Am Not Alone) – People & Songs

Lyrics Highlight:

“The Lord is my Shepherd
He goes before me
Defender behind me
I won’t fear

I’m filled with anointing
My cup’s overflowing
No weapon can harm me
I won’t fear

Hallelujah, I am not alone
He’s my Comfort,
Always holds me close

He always guides me
Through mountains and valleys
His joy is refreshing
Restores my soul

Mercy and goodness
Give me assurance
That I’ll see His glory
Face to face

Spirit lives within me
So I will walk in Your peace
Your Spirit lives within me
My victory, My victory”

16. Trust in You – Lauren Daigle

Lyrics Highlight:

“Letting go of every single dream
I lay each one down at Your feet
Every moment of my wandering
Never changes what You see
I try to win this war
I confess, my hands are weary, I need Your rest
Mighty warrior, king of the fight
No matter what I face You’re by my side

When You don’t move the mountains
I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You

Truth is, You know what tomorrow brings
There’s not a day ahead You have not seen
So let all things be my life and breath
I want what You want Lord and nothing less

You are my strength and comfort
You are my steady hand
You are my firm foundation
The rock on which I stand
Your ways are always higher
Your plans are always good
There’s not a place where I’ll go
You’ve not already stood”

17. It’s Not Over (When God Is In It) – Israel & New Breed

Lyrics Highlight:

“It’s not over, It’s not finished.
It’s not ending,
It’s only the beginning when God is in it.
All things are new.
All things are new.
I know it’s darkest just before dawn.
This might just be the hardest
Season you experience.
I know it hurts; it won’t be too long.
You’re closer than you think you are;
You’re closer than you’ve been before.
Oh look to the sky, help is on the way
It’s not over; It’s not finished.
It’s not ending;
It’s only the beginning when God is in it.
All things are new.
All things are new.
Something is moving, turning around.
Seasons are changing;
Everything is different now.
Here comes the sun piercing the clouds.
You’re closer than you think you are;
You’re closer than you’ve been before.
Look to the sky, help is on the way
Our God is faithful, faithful to say:
It’s not over, It’s not finished.
It’s not ending, it’s only the beginning.
It’s not over, It’s not finished.
It’s not ending;
It’s only the beginning
When God is in it,
It’s not over! (It’s not over)
It’s not over! (It’s not over)
It’s not over! (It’s not over)
It’s not over! (It’s not over)It’s not over (It’s not over)
Until God says so (until God says so)
So I count it all joy
(So I count it all joy)
You make all things new
(You make all things new)
It’s not over (It’s not over)
Until God says so (until God says so)
So I count it all joy
(So I count it all joy)
It’s not over, it’s not over”

“If you have felt the dark of night
Questioning what is out of sight
He is the answer, He is the light

If you have felt the weight of sin
Bound by the shame that hemmed you in
He’ll break the chains, He will forgive

Lift your head
Morning is coming
There’s more to the story
Don’t forget
In grief and in glory
Still great is His faithfulness

If you’ve felt broken and betrayed
No one to trust, alone, afraid
He’ll comfort you, He knows your name
If you’ve wrestled with the ache of loss
And why this has been your road to walk
He bore your pain, He wore your cross

He is Present, Helper, Keeper
Great is His Faithfulness
Perfect, Sovereign, Fortress
Great is His Faithfulness

Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name

The sun comes up
It’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass
And whatever lies before me
Let me be singing
When the evening comes

Bless the Lord, oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your Holy name

You’re rich in love
And You’re slow to anger
Your name is great
And Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness
I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons
For my heart to find

And on that day
When my strength is failing
The end draws near
And my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years
And then forevermore”
