good Christian songs to help with depression?

I was wondering if anyone had any Christian songs they liked to listen to that someone with depression could relate to, and that gave them comfort.


meh...that sentence is kind of disjointed; sorry about that, it's been one of those days and I don't feel like figuring out the correct way to word my question. Hopefully, y'all know what I meant to say lol.

I have a CD that I listen to each day and it lifts me every time I listen to it. Not so sure it will do the same for you but try it.
If you are able to, download the songs off the internet. Do a search for gospel at Kaaza. Here are a few.
The old rugged cross, What a friend we have in Jesus, One day at at time sweet Jesus, I saw the light,Stand by me,I come to the garden alone.
A site that you can order CDs of David Demarco is Daviddemarco.com He was at our church 2 weeks ago and he has an excellent voice and a great love for God. My daughters age 22 and 20 loved it. He writes his own songs. The one I enjoyed the most is called Im Free. Sings about how we are free to worship the way we choose.
I hope this helps you out and I am praying for you. It is nice to see that you are searching for the Lord in music. Music is a great way to worship.
May God bless you,
Tom

FFH (Far From Home) - You Found Me
Jeff Deyo - I Give You My Heart
Jeff Deyo - More Love More Power
Joy Williams - Surrender
MercyMe - Word of God Speak
Natalie Larue, TBone, Dj Maj - King of My Life
Jill Parr - Orbit
Switchfoot - Meant to Live
Todd Agnew - This Fragile Breath

Hope they help your friend as much as it helps me.

Kutless is my favorite by far! They explore such a great range of emotions, but I wake up to "Grace and Love" every morning. I would definately buy their CD because they're not only 100% Christian, they're wonderful musicians as well! Run by Kutless is one of the best anti-depressants that exists!

Actually it'd help if you had a Genre to work with here. If you're into heavier stuff to release your emotions, pillar or Disciple could be good. Perhaps you could mention some groups you already like?

Probably Petra's song about the 'world being in his hands' or their 'could'a gone either way' song.

hmmm....actually something that helps with depression is to just shake it off and just praise God, either in prayer, reading, or praise & worship music.....I know this works because I have severe depression and I'm not on any med's and doing this is the thing that gets me through the day in one piece and I go to bed at night knowing that Jesus is right there with me building me up to serve him......

I love to listen to Charlie & Jill LeBlanc. Very uplifting music.
Off the top of my head, here's the chorus to one of their oldies:
I want to sing. (I want to sing like the angels sing)
I want to dance. (I want to dance like King David danced)
I want to pray. (I want to pray like my Jesus prayed)
Teach me Lord. Teach me Lord. Teach me Lord. I pray.
