After hitting the big time with 'Here I Am To Worship' back in 2001, Tim Hughes has, of course, become one of the UK's most loved worship leaders, and this collection of songs is a celebration of his four studio albums of successful worship songs, some of which have become staple in churches across the land. There is something in this collection for everyone, and Kingsway have done very well in managing to pick his best loved songs whilst maintaining some semblance of order and flow throughout the 16 tracks. Opening with the pumping, electro-tinged "At Your Name" from his latest album, the collection moves through the high points of 'Hold Nothing Back' and 'When Silence Falls'. There is a refreshingly large amount of songs from 'Here I Am To Worship', which allow the listener to experience the depths and maturity of Hughes' lyric writing at such a young age. It is testimony to Hughes that such a collection has been released after only four studio albums, and it amply demonstrates his theologically astute songwriting, accompanying different styles and themes throughout.

This is the fourth studio album from Tim Hughes; the worship leader and songwriter who has become such a foundational part of the global worship scene.
This fifteen-track compilation celebrates that remarkable journey, from his early days leading at Soul Survivor through to his arrival at Holy Trinity Brompton in London and the incredible rise of Worship Central. The album also contains a bonus track When The Tears Fall. Drawing from each of his four classic albums (Here I Am To Worship, When Silence Falls, Holding Nothing Back, and Love Shine Through) this album contains all the classics - like Here I Am To Worship, Beautiful One, Happy Day and Counting On Your Name - along with other enduring favourites like Everything, Whole World In His Hands, Jesus Saves and God Of Justice.
