Billboard Top Christian Songs – May 18, 2013

Chris Tomlin’s Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies) earns a fourteenth week at number one, placing Tomlin into a four-way tie for seventh-longest reign atop the Billboard Christian Songs chart, alongside Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns, City on Our Knees by tobyMac, and The Motions by Matthew West. West and tobyMac, incidentally, are the two most likely to dethrone Tomlin from the top. West’s Hello My Name Is continues its swift rise to the top, skipping 4-2 this week, while Steal My Show by tobyMac reverses direction again and skyrockets 8-3. (My money’s on Matthew; the song has risen to number after just three weeks in the Top 10, which is lightning-fast for the Christian AC chart. Meanwhile, Steal My Show, while easily the best track off Eye On It, has had flashes of chart brilliance, but has been largely inconsistent.) Should Tomlin hold on for a 15th week, he will tie Jeremy Camp (Take You Back) and Building 429 (Where I Belong).
