It’s safe to say that the music group Shane and Shane is not a typical group, at least not in the sense that most people would immediately think of a group of musicians. If the very thought of people playing music together puts visions of hardcore rock artists in your head, it might be time to reevaluate your idea of music. The truth is, Shane and Shane, comprised of Shane Barnard and another Shane (this time, Everett), are not quite like any other group. For starters, they’re a worship, or Praise group, based in Texas and they thrive on contemporary music. If that’s not enough, their manager, Joey Parish, is also their drummer. Now that your interest is piqued, it’s time to check out 10 of their best songs.
10. I Will Wait For You (2019)
Every song is subjective but the meaning of this one is clearly stated in the title itself. In short, it’s all about waiting for the Lord, even during times that aren’t so great. Sometimes it’s easy to get the misconception that a strong belief in the Lord will make everything feel great almost all time. The truth is, everyone has trials and tribulations. A strong belief helps carry you through those darker days when you aren’t sure how things are going to work out in the end with regard to whatever situation is going on at that particular moment in time.
9. Holy, Holy, Holy (2018)
Again, you have a song that is all about the Lord. More specifically, the song is meant to praise the Lord with all your heart. Remember, they are a contemporary Praise band so it only makes sense that they would include a number of Praise songs into their setlist. This is a fan favorite, time after time.
8. My Portion (2009)
Of course, one cannot enter into a relationship without being willing to do their part. That is precisely what this song speaks to. In order to have a genuine relationship with the Lord, there is a certain amount of work that must take place on your part.
7. Is He Worthy (2019)
This is another fan favorite, one that people love to hear as much as possible. It’s easy to see why the band decides to play it at almost every live event. In fact, it’s highly likely that fans would be disappointed if they ever decided not to include it in their set list, as it has become something of a staple within the fandom and even among the band members themselves.
6. He Will Hold Me Fast (2018)
Here you have another song about relying on the Lord to get you through times of trouble. No one ever said living this life would be easy. Even those who seem to carry an almost permanent smile have problems of their own. This is a song about learning that everyone does indeed experience troubling times and that no matter how dark they might seem, they are only temporary because better days are ahead.
5. Though You Slay Me (2013)
Have you ever wondered why things have to be so difficult sometimes, especially when you feel like you’re doing everything you can to worship the Lord? This is a song that is exactly for those types of times. The lyrics speak of praising the Lord, even when you feel like you have been blindsided by something horrible. If you ever find yourself struggling with your faith, this is a song that can go a long way toward helping you get back on an even keel.
4. In Christ Alone (2018)
Again, you have a popular Praise song. If you look at the title, you will have a good idea of what the song is about before you even hear it. It talks about having a deep faith in Christ and being able to use that faith to help you get through virtually every situation in life, from the unspeakable to the amazing and wonderful. At its core, it is a song about keeping your life centered on Christ, no matter what else might be going on at the time. It’s all about learning to praise him, during both the difficult times and the times when everything seems to be going your way.
3. There Is a Fountain (2018)
Imagine being able to find a literal fountain that is full of nothing but love. In a way, that is precisely what you find with the Lord and this is a song about knowing that and resting in that knowledge.
2. How Great Thou Art (2018)
Of course, this is a song that has been around for a number of years. You’ll find it in various church hymnals and it’s been recorded by numerous artists over the course of several decades. That makes it an easy favorite among both the band members and the people who love their music. It also means they play the song at almost every event they perform at.
1. Ancient of Days (2020)
This is much more than a song with a really neat title. As a matter of fact, the title itself is referring to the Lord. Most people would agree that it’s simply another way of referring to Him, especially given the fact that the events that occurred during Jesus’s lifetime happened so long ago. Whatever your interpretation of the song might be, it has easily become one of the most requested songs the band has ever performed, and it is always considered a fan favorite.
