What does it mean if a hymn's content is temporarily unavailable in digital format? [FAQ]


Sometimes when editing your bulletin, you will notice an alert stating that a hymn isn't available digitally (see below for a list of hymns and psalms). This will happen regardless of any license or subscription attached to your account.

Though it is our goal for everything in the Christian Worship: Hymnal and Christian Worship: Psalter to be covered under One License, some negotiations are ongoing concerning pre-populating digital content within the software. We appreciate everyone's continued patience as we believe that most of the items listed will become available in the future.

There are some hymns where the negotiations have ended with the understanding that the copyright holders do not want the hymn to be reproduced digitally. In this case, you may notice a warning stating that the hymn can only be used in the print edition.

At this time, hymn 835 Precious Lord, Take my Hand is the only hymn with this status.
