Best-Loved Songs From Paul Baloche Now Available On Ultimate Collection
Every believer has signposts for the journey in faith. For worship leader Paul Baloche, that journey is marked by songs, personal prayers that have become global anthems for Christians from all walks of life. Now, 15 of this Dove Award winning songwriter’s most loved compositions will be available with the release of Paul Baloche Ultimate Collection, available everywhere Christian music is sold beginning February 16.
“Songwriting is a big part of my spiritual life,” Paul shares. “It helps me go deeper with God… helps me fix my mind on Jesus, to set my mind on things above. It keeps my heart fresh and alive, for myself, my family and the church.”
And the church has responded to this “worship pastor of worship pastors” whose songs have been featured on recordings by Matt Redman, Michael W. Smith, Casting Crowns and Phillips Craig & Dean to name but a few. Paul is one of the contemporary church’s most acclaimed songwriters, penning standards such as “Hosanna (Praise is Rising),” “Our God Saves,” “Your Name,” “Glorious,” “Above All” and “Open the Eyes of My Heart.” In short, Paul writes songs that the whole church sings.
“When I’m writing songs,” he explains, “I think, ‘Will this help the church worship God? Will this help people connect with Him?’. I realize that I’m putting words into the mouths of God’s people. I’m giving them a vocabulary to sing back to God. And when they sing those words, hopefully it will act as a catalyst in their hearts… because when we sing something, it goes down deep into our soul.”
