worship music for december 4, 2011 [Advent 2B]

Contemporary Worship MusicThis week we'll focus on the readings from Isaiah 40:1-11, 2 Peter 3:8-15a, and Mark 1:1-8.

That being said, we've got a few suggestions centering around the themes of waiting, wilderness, preparation and growth. We've also included a few songs that might tie in nicely with the baptismal imagery found in Mark 1:1-8.

While we'll be dealing with advent worship songs these next few weeks, we've also posted a list of contemporary Christian Christmas songs - check 'em out if you need help finding Christmas or Christmas Eve MP3's or sheet music.

As such, below are the top 10 worship songs for this Sunday. If you're looking for some additional worship song recommendations based on these themes, make sure you check out the searchable Song Index.You can search for contemporary worship songs by theme, title, or artist.
