Like any song, a popular Christian song will be crafted so that it engages the listener.
This might occur through a catchy hook, interesting instrumentation, or memorable lyrics.
In most cases, the chorus of a song will be the thing the artist wants the listener to catch onto.
This means they’ll often repeat a particular line to sum up the message they want to send through their art.
For example, in the popular worship song Our God by Chris Tomlin, the chorus repeats: Our God is greater / our God is stronger / God you are higher than any other / Our God is healer / Awesome in power our God / our God.
Here, we see how repetition can effectively indicate the title of a song.
There are songs which go against this trend and hide their title somewhere within the verse or bridge lyrics and by doing so, draw the reader’s attention to the thoughtfully crafted lyrics in the song. An example of one of these songs is Captain by Hillsong United.
There are a heap of apps out there today you can download that will recognize a song instantly and give you a link to listen to it on your favorite streaming service.
A personal favorite is Shazam and is actually programmed into the popular app Snapchat as well. You can activate the feature by holding your finger down in the middle of your screen and the app will listen out for what song is playing.
