The SAWM Song Search is back, and we are looking for songs to publish in 2022. Salvation Worship Volume 1 was released in February and Volume 2 is coming out in July. We are excited to find new songs from Salvationists around the world. Check out our website to see the available resources:


The SAWM Song Search exists to provide the opportunity for songs to be published for use in congregational worship. The Psalms encourage us to sing to the Lord and we want to encourage the singing of these “new songs.” 


Salvation Worship is published for congregations. We aim to make sure the songs are congregation-friendly and filled with lyrics that praise and worship our great God, reminding us of His goodness. Some of the submitted songs are entirely original. Other submissions have taken lyrics from our song book and have given them new life to fit today’s musical worship styles.


The adjudication process involves looking at the music and lyrics for each song and providing feedback to writers to help them improve. The panel is made up of leaders in Salvation Army contemporary music around the world. It’s also a blind adjudication so no names are given to the adjudicators. Piano tracks are made to ensure the recording quality is at an equal level.
