Where can I find a Contemporary Christian Songs Topical Index?


I am planning to create a topical index of the contemporary songs we use in worship, but don't want to "reinvent the wheel." Does anyone know of such an index already created?

We love your comments! Thanks for your help upholding the Community Guidelines to make this an encouraging and respectful community for everyone.

I know CCLI's SongSelect has topics listed for most songs, but I don't know if it's searchable by topic. It seems like I've seen various efforts toward that on message boards before, but I can't seem to find any now.

Diane, I have a Word document with a bunch of contemporary songs we sing here at Telkwa CRC. I've "tagged" each song with its topic(s) and/or Scripture reference(s). It's likely not entirely what you're looking for, but if it sounds helpful, I can email it to you. Stanley Groothof


Thanks JT and Stanley! CCLI has been very helpful--when I search for the song, I can click on it and it gives the themes that the song is associated with. This will help a lot.

Stanley--I'd love to have your Word doc. How do I give you my email without it going out to everyone on the network?

The Network site allows you to privately email any user. Just click the little email icon below the user's name/photo to send them a message through the system.

And, by email icon, of course I mean a little picture of an envelope! How ironic that an envelope is the universal symbol for email :-)

In addition to CCLI, you can also search songs by topic at www.hymnary.org.


Thanks, Tim.
