Using Songs


EasyWorship songs are saved in the songs resource area database for easy retrieval and efficient song management. You can search for songs by title or by the first line of any slide, verse, or chorus. The Favorites button enables you to select songs that you use the most and need to access quickly. When clicking the Favorites button only the selected songs will appear.


EasyWorship allows you to import songs, type your own songs or text, and edit songs. You can also download songs from CCLI's™ Song Select Lyric Service.


Locate and display a song:


  1. In the Resource area, click the Songs tab.

  1. Type the name of the song in the Title box.

  2. Begin typing the name of the desired song. You only have to type enough characters for EasyWorship to locate the song.

For example: to locate Amazing Grace, type Am.


  • If you do not know the title, begin typing the first line of the slide, verse, or chorus in the Search box.

For example: to find Amazing Grace, you could type "Twas Grace that" in the Search box.

  • EasyWorship locates, highlights, and displays the chosen song in the Preview area. The first line of the selected verse is displayed in the Search box.



EasyWorship reads numbers first, for example, if you name a song "1 Amazing Grace" it will appear first in the Resource area. This allows you to type a number and enter if you want to list songs numerically.
