Jamie Grace's long-running hit single "Beautiful Day" finishes 2014 as the year's No. 1 Hot Gospel Song. That chart-topping finish was encouraged by its handsome 20-week run at No. 1 atop the weekly multi-metric Hot Gospel Songs chart. (For good measure, the song also hit No. 3 on the weekly Hot Christian Songs tally in January.)
The multi-metric Hot Christian Songs survey only had two No. 1 songs all year, and they were different in almost every respect from one another -- except that they were both affirmations of the power of faith, prayer and human frailty, and they both used water as the defining theme.
