I'd like to avoid flaming in this thread, it's not a discussion on religion, but a recommendation thread and a thread for others looking for the same thing.

M'kay, what I'd like is some good Christian worship songs to play on bass. Sure, most of them are simple chord progressions, but I want worship songs with bass lines built in to them. I know a few already, but I want some more.

Some I know already are:

My Heart Is Yours ~Misty Edwards (a favorite of mine, awesome riff)
Isn't He Lovely ~Brian Johnson
And most songs by David Ruis

Also, even some worship songs with neat chord progressions are appreciated.

I know! Gospel and worship bassists are some of the best out there, people just never think of them or hear of them because they're in a smaller genre of music.

Man, Misty Edwards' bassist is definitely my favorite bassist. Her tone sits perfectly in the mix and she's so solid while adding to the music. Plus she's a chick bassist, Anarkee is the only other chick bassist I know who is worth her weight in DR strings.

Todd Agnew - Grace like Rain
Kutless - Jesus Lord of Heaven
Kutless - Better is One Day
Delirious - Majesty
Israel Houghton - You Are Good
Jared Anderson/Desperation Band - Promises (this song is pretty simple, but it was a bass interlude for the bridge section, allows for some creativity)

You can do a lot of fun stuff with most of these, even where theres not a great bassline already written.

the only band i remember a buddy of mine talking about was tourniquet. i believe they were a christian band of sorts..

he learned a lot of his drumming from them, so i can only imagine the bass playing would be decent as well since the 2 go hand in hand

Tommy Walker's stuff is really good, his chord progressions are more out of the I-V-vi-IV box than alot of worship, which makes it funner to play over. Check out Shane and Shane as well, they throw in some cool progressions and really cool rhythmic bits in their guitar playing that makes for fun basslines.
