We are currently conducting a survey to learn about attitudes and practices around music in sacrament meeting in different wards. We’d love your help taking the quick survey! You can fill it out here. Thanks! – Samuel

Hymns Sung in Sacrament Meetings

During 2017, we conducted a sacrament meeting hymns survey to find out which hymns are sung most commonly in sacrament meetings around the world. We got 100–120 responses from different wards each week.

The results were supplemented with data from a 2015 SingPraises survey, Joey Stanley’s Hymn Stats project, a 2014–2015 survey done by Kjerste Christensen, and several sacrament meeting hymn tracking charts.

In total, the dataset includes 58,014 hymns, representing a total of 16,491 unique sacrament meetings in 995 wards (mostly in the United States).

Overview

The first list shows the top songs sung by the congregation in sacrament meetings. The top songs are all sacrament hymns, because 1 out of every few hymns sung each week is in that category. The second list, and most other lists on this page, are adjusted to exclude hymns sung as the sacrament hymn.

In each of the lists below, the number in parentheses after the hymn title is the number of times it was reported as being sung. It is not the hymn number.
