The top 25 CCLI songs are publicly available to see what songs churches are singing. However, CCLI only tracks songs under copyright, and does not track the activity of songs in the public domain, most notably the great hymns of the church.
Below is a list of the top 25 hymns sung in church today. To create this list, we combined the sales from a traditional arrangement and a contemporary arrangement of each hymn for the past four years.

2. Great Is Thy Faithfulness

“How Great Thou Art” and “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” are still under copyright, so CCLI tracks them and they rank #26 and #53 respectively on their list of all copyrighted songs sung in church.
