Is listening to a Christian song such as Al Shadi (which is partly in Hebrew) a sin, or is it just not something a Jew would listen to but not strictly sinful?

According to this answer on a question about performing such music, Igrot Moshe writes (Yoreh De'ah 2:56) that it is asur (forbidden) to listen to music that has avodah zara/Christian intent in it. Assessing intent is not always clear-cut and other sources may be more lenient in ambiguous cases, but both the lyrics and the images in the video you linked leave no doubt about that song, which subverts Jewish themes to promote Christianity. (I'm basing that on paging through the subtitles; audio was off.)
