CCLI features Rick Lee James Advent Hymn (Watching, Waiting, Longing) music video and sheet music.
It was such an honor to discover that the music video and sheet music for “Advent Hymn (Watching, Waiting, Longing)” are being featured right now on CCLItv.com.
In the same way that purchasing a song from iTunes ensures that an artist is properly compensated for their work, CCLI guarantees a paycheck for worship song writers enabling churches to have real-time access to licensed Christian music and media while easing the burden of administration in the many complex issues related to copyright.
