The list of Top 50 Worship Songs was supplied by Christian Copyright Licensing International, a private company that licenses copyrighted songs for use in church services. The survey data is valuable because it represents the 839 GARBC churches who subscribe to the CCLI service, about 65 percent of GARBC churches. The survey covers the period April – September 2011. For a full analysis and a few caveats, read “Psalms, Hymns, and Some Really New Songs” (September/October ). For an earlier list, read “Praise Songs Most Used in GARBC Churches (2009).”
