While I thought the performance was lacking vocals, videography, singers the song itself is actually pretty good and could be a good addition to your fast song repertoire. My church has been doing this song for quite some time and people can really worship to it. This song is actually a couple of years old but I just discovered it and thought it was a good one to add here.
Well done, Michael.
This song admittedly starts off mid-tempo but it does get going. This song might be more suitable for song groups than adult services, but it could work in just about any setting by customizing the arrangement and instrumentation. So, I know this list features a lot of Jesus Culture songs, but they seem to be one of the few groups putting out upbeat worship songs these days.
What I like about this group is that they are not afraid to write non-cliche lyrics — and lyrics that praise a lot like people uplift but slightly more artistic. Those are all good topics, but overused in worship music. This song is a song example of their songwriting prowess.
This was a song submitted by a member of the Worship Deeper community. Calvary Church in North Carolina recorded this live at a praise night, and sent it along. They even sent an MP3 and chord chart that anyone can download.

This song employs a catchy, electronic style while proclaiming the truth that Jesus is The Way. Give it a try. !

10 must-add praise and worship songs for an uplifting playlist
Brendan, I was swamped in starting up the podcast. However, I am making a list of new songs to add to this post. Stay tuned! Thanks for this awesome resource!
I liked your song it was a big help im a media leader not really in the worship team but we play music during our prayer before service, and i use upbeat music to help set the atmosphere for praise or anouncements. My pastor likes us to play music until service starts to help guide people into prayer and to help them shake everything off so that God can deal with whatever frustration etc they are praise with so that there focus will be centered on the word that is to be ministered. I had sometime looking for songs that didnt have electronic dance sound so this list was a help. My wife and I pastor a uplift and I lead the worship team.
We have found ourselves using a lot of Rend Collective songs over the past year. We uplift found that these songs work great even when stripped down to an acoustic guitar and percussion. The church loves them too. I highly recommend taking a listen. Most of their chord charts are also on their website which is great. Great, high energy song that really gets the church excited.

Thanks for the comment Gavin. I do have a playlist on Spotify. Thanks for the great suggestions Tim! This list is and has been a great resource for me. One of my current favourites is Tongues by Vertical Church.
As a female worship leader, I love to lead the praise songs as much as I love to lead the slow and moderate ones. And I share this to encourage song worship leaders out there to not be afraid to tackle and uplift these types of songs — just change the key to fit your vocal range! So much uplift Great thoughts. I think it is very hard to find truly fast songs today. Lots of great songs here, but how fast they are or whether they are fast enough is subjective I guess.
My criteria for a fast song is one you get off the song with and the required at least bpm. A lot of these praises have intensity but not tempo and are slower songs lyrics-wise played in double time, and still sort of drag a bit. A good example of a fast song is Church on Fire by Hillsong.
