Hymns/Gospel Music Recommendations?

I'm looking for any religious music that focuses on God - as in, God the Father, not Jesus. A lot of Christian music also has Jesus imagery (bread, wine, cross, etc.) without specifically mentioning Jesus, but again, that's not what I'm looking for. I want to listen to some holy, inspirational music (whatever the style) but our family, while religious and God-fearing, isn't Christian. I know, kind of a weird question!


Any favorites you could recommend?

I'm not religious, but I find Gregorian chants really inspiring!

I know this may sound weird...but the Violent Femmes has song cool songs about God. The album Hollowed Ground has a song about Noah.

I want to 2nd Gregorian chants
