We know from the Bible that those who humble themselves before God will be lifted up. Humility is defined as the ability to be free from arrogance and pride. This is why according to James 4:6, “But He gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble”.
Humility is a principal character that should be seen among followers of Jesus because He himself humbly followed God’s plan for His life. So, to remind us that He is greater than ourselves, here are the 3 best Christian songs about humility.
In today’s era, meeting someone with true humility can be rare. You will miss out on blessings and what God wants for your life if you fail to let go of pride. We hope this list of the best Christian songs about humility will encourage you to let God rule over your life.

Like An Avalanche – Hillsong UNITED
Like An Avalanche is the third track in the album by Australian worship group Hillsong UNITED titled “Aftermath”. With lyrics like “Beautiful God, Laying Your majesty aside, You reached out in love to show me life, Lifted from darkness into light”, the song Like an Avalanche talks about how Jesus was king in heaven but came to earth to suffer like a slave.
Although we are foolish, full of pride, and selfish, He gave up His life to save us from sin. It was the ultimate display of God’s perfect love. Grace was freely given despite not being deserved.
Further, the song talks about how we must surrender our lives to God because no one can compare to His love, which is like an avalanche. His love is ever overwhelming. This is how graceful and great God is. Just like the bridge lyrics, we must take our hearts and all that we have to love Him.
Here I Am To Worship – Chris Tomlin, Passion
Here I Am To Worship is a live rendition by contemporary Christian singer and songwriter Chris Tomlin and Australia-based worship band Passion. The song talks about exactly why God is worthy of being loved and praised above all.
Here I Am To Worship was written by drawing inspiration from Philippians 2. The Bible chapter talks about how we should not do anything with “selfish ambition or vain” conceit, but with humility because this is the same mindset Jesus Christ had.
According to Philippians 2:6-8, “God did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!”.
Just like the lyrics of the song “I’ll never know how much it cost, To see my sin upon that cross”, we will never exactly understand the depth of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. In response to His unconditional love for us sinners, we are to respond in humility and worship Him with the highest praise. Every knee should bow to Him.
Indescribable – Chris Tomlin
Indescribable is a contemporary worship song that is part of Chris Tomlin’s album titled “Awakening”. With lyrics like, “Indescribable, uncontainable, You placed the stars in the sky, And You know them by name, You are amazing, God, All powerful, untameable, Awestruck we fall to our knees, As we humbly proclaim, You are amazing, God”, the song acknowledges the greatness of God.
Sometimes, words are just not enough to describe just how amazing God is, and as followers of Christ we respond to this by humbling ourselves and worshiping Him. Worship is a deep and intimate way to express our love for God.
It is commanded in Micah 6:8, “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God”. Have you ever thought about humbling yourself in the presence of the One that died for your sins?
