Song Ideas for Palm Sunday, April 10, 2022


Processional Songs: 

Hosanna by John Angotti (WLP/GIA) from the CD  Today  “Hosanna to the Son of David. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”  (Procession with Palms) 

Hosanna to the Son of David by Tom Booth (spiritandsong)  (Procession with Palms) 

Blessed Is He by Feargal King (WLP/GIA) found in the collection Voices as One vol. 2 and VOICES “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”  (Procession with Palms )  listen  


Another Idea: 

Here is something I arranged a couple of years ago: a ‘verse’ to go with the beautiful and popular refrain by Brooke Ligertwood in the song  Hosanna.  (by Hillsong). 

Blessed Is He – Hosanna EXCERPT 

You could begin with the Refrain or the Verse, your choice.  The song can continue to loop around as much as needed.
