mighty to save is one of my favorite songs by Hillsong. my sister is studying to become an interpretor for sign language and we had one of our best bonding moments when she taught me how to sign the whole song in sign language. not only did it help me grow, it made her become more of a believer when i played hef the song. thank you for the amazing music!

I was blessed to go on a mission trip to Dagupan City, Philippines. With all of the poverty and homeless, it made me realized how blessed we are. The people there in Daugupan loved to listen to Hillsong. The music inspires them inspite of the difficulty. It would be a miracle if Hillsong could go to the area I was in and have a concert. Hillsong-God is using your gifts to bless people all over the world. May God Bless You and KLOVE always, David

Some folks out there 'get their worship on' in different ways than sitting in a church service.  Ministering thru music is a BIG thing.  You can listen to Hillsong and our great Christian artists and feel like you HAVE been to church.  Powerful words make the difference.  Thanks for keepin' on Hillsong.  God Bless you in ALL your endevours.

I was introduced to Hillsong about a year ago with a new church we attended. Now we have multiple CD's, and my boys ages 5,4,3 will ride in the car singing "Living to make your name high..Jesus"!!!! I love it, and I love Hillsong. All churches should play Hillsong all the time.

Michelle United States
Thank you Hillsong!   I started listening to Hillsong with my daughter, Kaitlyn, when she was going through treatment for a malignant brain tumor.  She was 5 years old and full of spunk!  Her occupational therapist brought a Hillsong CD to us one day, and we started listening to it while we did her daily physical therapy.  It helped to have the strenght and spirit of the Lord playing through Hillsong while we fought that awful disease.

Unfortunately, we lost Katie in 2006 to pediatric brain cancer .... but we KNOW she's loving Heaven and is in the best place ever!   In fact, I would imagine that she's chasing Noah around right this minute!

Thanks for the encouragement Hillsong!

Darlene! Your song,"Shout to the Lord," spoke to me like none other when I became a believer. I was 34 years old (I'm 47 now) and it expressed everything for me.

Today, as I was driving and listening to that song again, I broke down and cried. Mostly out of gratitude to our God, but also as a convicted sinner who needs to remember to praise Him daily for all His blessings.

Thank you for what you do!

I listen to Hillsong everyday on my drive home from work. I listen only to KLOVE these days I love all of the music you play. we attended the Hillsong united concert in Loveland Colorado last January with about 4000 other people. there is something about that large of a group of people coming together for the same reason, to worship Jesus. I still get emotional thinking about it today. There is only one more artist that has affected as this much and she is also from Australia.....Go figure. one more thing, I was able wit-nest a change in a "non believer" Who now is starting to see the truth and experience Gods love. This is the impact of your music and ministry in my life and others around me. I hope Hillsong will make it back to Colorado again someday. God bless you all.

Hi guys! You are a tremendous blessing to all the world by carrying Jesus Christ to the furthest ends of the earth. You have such a desire for unity, and by that I mean uniting everyone under one name and that's Jesus.

Thank you so much!

I just wanted to let Hillsong know how much I love their music.  I just recently bought a Christian book store in New Hartford, New York and I cannot tell you how hard it is to keep their cd's on our shelves.  My favorite song by them is "Mighty To Save".  I am one of the sacred dancers at my church and whenever our worship team plays "Mighty to Save" the movements for our dance just flow with the love of the Holy Spirit during that song.  It is just one the the songs from Hillsong that completely fills me with Christ's love.  Thank you for all you do for His glory.

I am a worship leader at my church and can not even begin to thank you for the anointed songs you have put out to the world.  We at our church and worship team have worshiped with many of your songs.  The true reward for your amazing worship will come from the Lord, but I would like to express my sincerest thanks for all you do.  Keep up the great work for the Lord He is proud of you.

Hey Hillsong folks,

Just wanted to say that there is such an annointing over your music and your ministry. The fact that I can plug into my iPod and be drawn into the Lord's presence is a powerful and wonderful blessing; and as a worship leader, I can testify to how the Holy Spirit moves people and meets people through your songs. Be blessed (and come to Chicago soon)!

- Vinnie

p.s. Tell K-Love to play more of your music Smile

As a worship leader, leading a team of people with different abilities, talents, and ideas can be difficult. Add to that the circumstances of life (work, school, family, etc.) and being a part of a ministry can sometimes seem more like a job or chore than actually ministering for the Lord. But you guys at Hillsong seem to be able to keep your focus right where it needs to be: on the Father above. What do you guys say to teams who are struggling to balance ministry with all other parts of life and keep their priorities in check?

Thank you Hillsong for your music!!  My dad took me to see you guys live at City of Grace church in Mesa, AZ and listening to your music has wanted to make me give my life back to Christ!

Thanks for letting God work through your music.  My mother and I saw you in Austin earlier this year and it changed her life. She has been so blessed since that night.  She fell in love with your music especially "Savior King" thanks.  Is there anyway you could play that for her been a tough week dad has dementia and has been difficult to deal with she is a little depressed and that would life her spirits a bunch.  Thanks and keep serving with the great music

still - i heard it at church and melted at how when i need it most God lifts me up to soar above the storm. one day we will forever soar above them. as i am physically disabled, the idea of soaring with arms and legs relaxed...i get so excited! i can't wait for this life to be done!

My husband has a shortcut to Hillsong's YouTube video of "You'll Come" on his computer...  sometimes we just sit there and keep playing it over and over - (literally, like six times in a row!) - because it is so worshipful!!!

I have a sort of "controversial" question:  my youngest brother (who is 46-years-old and has abandoned Christianity) has lived in Oz for about 15 years and is living with an Aussie woman and her three kids... when they were here in the States visiting last Fall, I brought up Hillsong, and their immediate reaction was one of disgust!  Their comment was, That church is so corrupt!"  I was so bummed that was their reaction and was wondering where their opinion might have come from...  Did your church go through some sort of pastoral scandal in the past or have negative press about finances or ???

Why are we here? What's my purpose?

This is a question I used to often ask myself and God. ((I used to ask out loud, and then I would get frustrated when he didn't answer me. Yet, I never really took the time to read His Word.)) A mass of events happened this summer, and the end result was a complete change of heart. God softened my heart, and opened my eyes to my (our)purpose. One day I read Lk 6:27-49(Loving Your Enemies). AMAZING!!! And then, I heard Hosanna. I had heard it before, but the song meant something more this time I had listened to it. I began to bawl during the bridge-> "Open my eyes to things unseen. Show me how to love like you have loved me. Break my heart for what breaks yours. Everything I am for Your kingdoms cause."<- Golly! This is my prayer everyday! ((To see everyone as HIS children. To get past MY feelings, and Love like HE has loved me. It's not about me, it's all for HIM!))
So thanks for singing that song Smile and Klove, thanks for playin' it!

I can't believe I can express my thanks and it may reach the ears of Hillsong.  I have been very sick and have been in and out of the hospital.  I began to get better and one day I heard "Made Me Glad" while working from home.  I could not contain my tears and just begain to sob as I worshiped the Lord through this amazing song.  I have learned this song and have taught it to our congregation.  Thank you for such a beautiful song that still makes me weep everytime I hear or sing it.  May God bless your ministry richly.

When i was on my x country team, a girl liked to give nicknames to people. she called me Mattress and the name stuck for the rest of the season. everyone called me that. my mom personally hates it, but i kinda like it.

I was wondering why they are cutting Darlene out of their albums. She only sings 2 songs in their lastest album, 'Beautiful Exchange'. Is it something she is doing or is someone booting her out?

their song "with everything" changed my walk with God! The first time i heard it was during worship time at camp this year! i had been praying all week that God would speak to me in some way! finally on the last night, we were singing this song, and it was like God was speaking to me through it! words can't describe the feeling! it brought me to my knees and by the end of the song i had tears streaming down my face! it was a beautiful moment and one of those big stepping stones in my faith that i will remember forever! thank you so much Hillsong for your music! it speaks multitudes!Smile

Hillsong, without a doubt, has completely changed my relationship with Jesus.  Particularly one song that has stuck in my heart forever is "King of All Days."  I first heard it at a church camp, and it is easily one of my favorite songs of all time.  It just totally reminds me every time that I can run to the arms of love, that Jesus died for me, and that I can lay all I have at the cross.  I don't have to carry any of my burdens anymore - Jesus took it all.  All I have to do is run to the arms of love.  Thank you, HIllsong, for all that you do.  I know it can't be easy, but I hope you know all of the lives that you touch each and every day.  This song helped lead one of my friends to Christ.  Thank you so much, all for God's kingdom.  I love you guys.
8/6/2010 3:24:27 PM
Rachel United States
Also - sorry I forgot to post this but I just have to say that the bridge for "Hosanna" is probably the best musical piece and prayer I have ever heard.  Thank you so much.  It has gotten me through everything.
