I was thinking about it this morning (well, actually, two mornings ago, by the time you read this), and there are very few worship songs with really good (or even decent) bass lines.  I play bass on my church’s worship team, and this has bugged me endlessly.

For bassists to be so harshly discriminated against in the worship music industry simply because of their lower-end frequency nature is simply injust.

It’s with this in mind that I’m starting a T-shirt company which will raise money to help fund underprivileged bassists on worship teams throughout America, Europe, and other bass-discriminatory nations.

Seriously, I thought it’d be fun to create an ever-expanding list of worship songs that have at least decent (and possibly awesome) bass lines.

Here’s what I have so far, and leave any comments with your own thoughts and additions:

All Slow Down (Chris Tomlin)
Be Lifted or Hope Rising (David Crowder Band)
Deeper (Delirious?)
Found (Hillsong United)
Jesus Garden of My Rest (Robbie Seay Band)
Make a Joyful Noise / I Will Not Be Silent (David Crowder Band)
Oh Jah! (MorningStar Worship / Leonard Smith)
Rain Down (Delirious?)
Rend the Heavens (Isa Courvertier)
The River is Here (Vineyard Worship)
Sing Like the Saved (David Crowder Band)
Tell the World (Hillsong United)
We are Free (Robbie Seay Band)
You (Waterdeep)

Alright, that’s what I’ve got for now of the worship songs I can think of with good to great bass lines.  Help me out and add some to the mix.
