Top 11 Christian Ukulele Songs

Here are 11 amazing Christian Ukulele songs you can play on your own.

Christian Ukulele Songs to learn

1. Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone) by Chris Tomlin

This is a classic Christian song and the best part is you need to know just a few chords to play it. They are:

  • Am7
  • C
  • D
  • D7
  • G

That’s it. If you struggle with barre chords then this is an opportunity to brush up. This is a song that will come up again and again during your life and you should know how to play it. It should be a favorite anyway if you’ve spent any time in church.

This version of course is different in the way that it begins. It begins with “My chains are gone” and surprises the listener further on. There is also a bit of a build in the song. The tempo however, remains the same, so you can get a lot of practice playing it without worrying about change too often.

This is one of the best Christian ukulele songs that you’ll find. It’s an old favorite, and the ukulele version is a great addition.

2. Hosanna by Hillsong 

Hosanna by Hillsong is a little chordier if you catch my drift. It requires you to master 6 chords, and switching between them can be hard for beginners. That being said, mastering this song will help you play a lot of the others, since it’s a little faster than most worship songs.

The chords are:

  • C
  • Am
  • Dm
  • G
  • F
  • D

The main thing that you need to master is the dynamics. The song will sound incredible if you ramp up the intensity in the right place. However, for that, you’ll need to be really comfortable with the chords.

Here’s a video teaching this song with the same chords but more simplified:

3. Amazing Love by Hillsong

As with Amazing Grace, you will get just 4 chords to master here. The song is a staple in most churches and a great one to add to your skill set.

  • D
  • G
  • Bm
  • A

If you master this song, you’ll be sure to be in the good graces of your choir instructor. Whether you’re playing it alone or for someone, it is a very heavenly composition and can be very spiritually fulfilling.

4. Here I Am to Worship by Chris Tomlin

This is another song with just 4 chords. You’ll need the:

  • A
  • D
  • Em
  • G

Chords and you’ll be on your way. With most worship songs, the tune is relatively slow, and it’s the same for this one as well. The chord changes happen once every two bars and that will make them easy enough to follow. This one is really simple enough for beginners to master.

You can also play it in just G C F if you’d like, here’s a video showing how:

5. God of Wonders by Third Day

The verse of this song is basically just 3 chords, so you master them and you’re through the difficult part.

They are:

  • D
  • G
  • C

The other additions to the song include:

  • Em
  • Am

This one should be a familiar one to you if you’re a regular churchgoer. The trick here is that it’s a little faster than other worship songs. In fact, it’s a lot faster. Hence, getting through the chords will require a steady hand. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll find it very easy.

6. Forever Reign by Hillsong

This is the perfect song if you’re a beginner. There are just two chords throughout the song, with a few additions. That means if you perfect 2 chords, you’re basically through the entire song.

These chords are:

  • C
  • G
  • With Am and F as additions.

You can try out different variations and rhythmic pattens if you want. This song can sound very nice with island strum. Which goes down, down, up, up, and down, up. This variation and the simplicity of the song can give you a lot of practice.

The original is also a great composition which cruises along at a leisurely tempo. You can do if you practice regularly.

7. Today is the Day by Lincoln Brewster

If you’re looking to translate some great guitar riffs on your ukulele, this is the song. Even the title has a great pep to it. Lincoln Brewster has put some great energy into it. It may seem intimidating at first, but you can play most of the song pretty easily:

  • D
  • Bm
  • A
  • G
  • Em

If you’re a little more well versed in the art of strumming and chords, you could come up with your own riffs. You can have a lot of fun with this composition.

8. How He Loves by David Crowder Band

How He Loves is a very powerful song about the Lord. It features just 4 chords under your fingers. You will need to learn these chords very well however, since they last for about a bar each. Slipping fingers and quivering hands won’t do you any good here.

The chords are:

  • Am
  • C
  • F
  • G

You’ll also get plenty of opportunities to ramp up the dynamics in the choruses. You can begin gently in the very start. And then you can gradually build the intensity.

9. Mighty to Save by Hillsong

The four chords you’ll need to master this song are quite similar to the ones for other songs on this list.

They are:

  • A
  • D
  • E
  • F#m

The video version of this song is a different key, but the changes are the same. The chords are adapted to the key of C. This is a very easy song to pick up and master if you’re preparing for a choir performance at the last minute.

10. Praise You In This Storm by Casting Crowns

The Casting Crowns are one of the best Christian bands today. Their song “Who Am I” is one of the best Christian songs you’ll ever hear. However, they’re ukulele version of Praise You in This Storm is one of their best as well.

This song requires 5 chords. These are:

  • Am
  • C
  • D
  • Em
  • G

If you’re feeling upset or down or waiting for some sort of message, then this a great song to lean on. You will need to practice a little to learn it, but the pay off is incredible.

The changes in the chords are a little dynamic, but they happen at a slow pace every bar.

11. You Are My Strength by Hillsong

There are several ways of playing You Are My Strength in different tutorials. However, if you have mastered these chords:

  • G
  • C
  • D
  • Em

Then you need not worry. The slash chords (G/B, and D/F#) are just the same chords with different bass notes. There are ways to play them on the ukulele if you practice enough.

There are also some odd timings for chord changes in the bridge. So, you should go through the entire progression once to get the hang of it.

These songs consist of ones you’ve heard all your life, and ones which you’ll probably hear for the first time. So, grab your ukulele and get to strumming. Chances are you’ll find something which will take your fancy and you can sway with merriment along with your family.

Be sure to practice those progressions and don’t skimp out on the chords themselves.
