For those who use the Glory to God hymnal, or other Presbyterian hymnals: Please understand that Presbyterian Publishing does not hold copyrights for most of the hymns we publish. The hymnals contain works from many copyright holders, each with their own permissions guidelines. Unfortunately, many copyright holders do not allow streaming, even with purchase of printed hymnals. We hope special allowances will be put in place in response to the virus. As we get more information about that we’ll share it. Here’s where things stand at the moment.

We own or administer rights for hymns bearing copyright notices from Westminster John Knox Press, The Westminster Press, John Ribble, W. L. Jenkins, Jane Parker Huber, Brian Dill, or Melva Costen. We are happy to grant permission for you to stream these works.

Most major copyright holders work with CCLI or and both agencies offer licenses that grant streaming rights. For details, please visit CCLI and OneLicense. Please watch their sites for news about special licensing offers in response to the virus.
