Proclaim is cloud-based. This means your presentations are stored securely in your own corner of the Proclaim server and sync quickly across multiple devices. It means that the pastor can work on his message visuals from his office computer while you’re building a set list at a coffee shop. It means that changes made on your notebook Saturday night automatically sync to the worship center’s computer on Sunday morning.
It also means we can see how churches all over the country are using Proclaim, which songs are universally loved, and which songs are gaining popularity. Starting today, each Monday we’ll post the top 10 most used songs in Proclaim and make note of any fast-movers so you can get an idea of what your peers are featuring in worship services around the world.
This week’s top 10:
- “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)”
- “How Great Is Our God”
- “Blessed Be Your Name”
- “Our God”
- “Mighty to Save”
- “Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)”
- “Revelation Song”
- “Everlasting God”
- “Here I Am to Worship”
- “In Christ Alone”
“10,000 Reasons” led all other songs for the past four weeks we spent watching the data. We expect this 2010 title from Matt Redman to remain a perennial favorite.
@ProclaimOnline 10,000 Reasons?

I hadn’t heard the song “Break Every Chain” before finding it at number 60. Written by Will Reagan and performed with United Pursuit Band, this title was featured on the album inspired by the documentary Nefarious. If this simple, yet powerful song is new to you as well, consider introducing it to your congregation.
There are 19 hymns in the top 100, including “How Great Thou Art” at number 12. Even with new songs written in the church almost weekly, the classics still hold tremendous value.
