Using Lyric Groups

The Lyric Library maintains a list of lyric groups - special categories that you assign songs to - to make it easier to find and manage song lyrics.

If you want to be able to call up a particular set of songs quickly, consider creating a lyric group for them.

Any song can be a member of any number of groups, or none at all. Groups can be used in any number ways. For example, you might have a group for Christmas hymns, another group for songs used in youth services, and another containing all of the favorite songs of the worship leader.


Creating and deleting lyric groups


Lyric groups are created and deleted in the Insert Lyrics pop-up window.

To create or delete a group, follow these steps:

  1. On the Home tab, click Insert Lyric.
  2. Click Library.
  3. Add a name for the new group then click +

  • To edit the group name, click the Pencil and enter a new name.
  • To delete a group, click its red X.


Adding or removing songs from groups


To add a song to a lyric group, follow these steps:

  1. Click Library to show all songs.
  2. Find the song you want to add to a group.
