Songs as prayers

Hi guys. 
When I got my diagnosis a few weeks ago, I found I had the words of a Christian song in my head all the time. 
“He will hold me fast
he will hold me fast
for my Saviour loves me so
he will hold me fast”. 
The song was in my head all night before I got the news, during my MRI and other scans and when I went in for surgery. 
I’m not sure why but I’ve had trouble praying. Cant find the words to say. I’ve had to rely on friends and members of church to pray for me. I’ve found singing Christian songs has helped me. I had a playlist in my car or just sang songs in my head. Wondered if others had some good songs they sang to help them through their journey. 
My favourite are: 
he will hold me fast - Keith Getty
Rock of Ages - Ruth Buchanan
rescue - Lauren Daigle
Raise a Hallelujah - Bethel music

    I found it a good way to connect with God while going through treatments.... 
    I prefer older hymns and use spotify.....  I like Gaithers and Geoff Bullock "Just let me say"  , Guy Penrod, Joey & Rory Hymns.
