How to become a lyrics curator - Christian lyrics on Spotify / Apple Music / etc.

Have you ever wondered how the lyrics appear in the songs on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Shazam, etc.?

Become part of the largest catalog 
of music data on the planet,
by joining a family of music lovers

The largest catalog of lyrics ever has Christian lyrics contributed by Christians from around the world. Isn't that awesome? 

Musixmatch is the portal for getting lyrics published on several streaming services. You don't need us to join Musixmatch... but we have a dedicated workspace with like-minded contributors / curators that understand the jargon, spelling rules, etc. associated with Christian music. 

Here is what we have to offer: 

  • Access to a (new) community of music lovers that share the passion to transcribe & share Christian lyrics
  • Community members guide / mentor each other in a manner that one may expect in any Christian community (always based on constructive feedback)
  • If you'd like more permissions / functionalities / paid activities, we will coach you to become a Certified Curator
  • Certified curators also have the possibility to work directly with Christian artists who ask us for assistance with publishing / managing their lyrics (this includes publishing lyrics on their behalf, as a verified artist)

Christian music is not only our passion, but we also aim to make the Christian music genre easier to explore and listen to. It is our prayer that God's message of comfort and hope will reach even more hearts as a result of this ministry.

Our passion drives us to curate a large number of frequently updated playlists on Spotify, Deezer, and YouTube. In addition, it motivates us to devote so much time to collecting and transcribing lyrics, as well as publishing them online.

We invite you to join our community of Christian music lovers.

'The Way Back Home' by Kaleb Stark: Unfolding the Compass of God's Unending Love

Draw near and find comfort in Kaleb Stark's heartfelt CCM song 'The Way Back Home.' This song, glistening with the unmistakable gleam of divine love, whispers a soul-touching story of redemption and unconditional love, spanning from the days of Adam and Eve to the present day. 'The Way Back Home' offers a gentle, soothing hand to those who have been hurt by The Church or Christians in general, or who believe they have strayed too far from God's love. In reality, no detour or misstep can take us out of the path of His love. This truth is echoed by Stark's rhythm, which engages listeners with lyrics that tenderly counter these misconceptions. The song highlights the transformative journey marked by our trials and failures, rather than the sting of condemnation, from the perspective of a tender, caring parent. It serves as a beacon, guiding both familiar and unfamiliar ears of Christian music to recognize the vast tapestry of God's unending love. Kaleb Star

Sarah Kroger, Nathan Jess - Belovedness - Live (CCM)

Are you tired of feeling inadequate and alone in your struggles? Have a look at Sarah Kroger's 'Belovedness,' a powerful ballad that reminds us of our worth as children of God. Initially released on Kroger's sophomore album, 'Light,' during the peak of a global healthcare crisis, 'Belovedness' quickly found a following among those battling mental health challenges. The revisited live version, recorded in a barn-turned-studio in the UK countryside, offers a sweet, intimate take on the song, featuring Northern Irish singer-songwriter Nathan Jess on vocals. Kroger wrote the song during a period of personal growth, as she discovered the truth of her identity through reading Henri Nouwen's 'Life of The Beloved.' The lyrics remind us to let go of our past mistakes and the lies we've been told, and to embrace the truth of our belovedness. This song is not only for the Christian community, it is also for anyone struggling with their identity, loo
