The Lyric Library stores songs as complete cues. Once you add a song to the library and format it, it is ready to use at any time - just insert it as a lyric cue.

The Library is located in the left column of the Insert Lyric pop-up window.

To search for a song, follow these steps:

  1. In the Insert Lyric pop-up window, at the top of the left column next the Gear, click the Search Fields button.
  2. Select what fields you want to search: Title, Text, Author, Copyright, or CCLI. You can select multiple search fields.
  3. In the search box, type the search query then press Enter.
  4. Songs that match the search criteria will appear in the Song list.


  • You can filter the Song list by clicking a Lyric Group name, Song Select, or Planning Center Online.
