Sing Hosanna … new song for Holy Week

palms_cross1New Palm/Passion Sunday song to offer you.  It’s called Sing hosanna. I’m really happy with it. As it turns out, portions of the chorus have strong echoes of  the melody from “Geistliche Kirchengesang” – popularized in Ralph Vaughan Williams’ setting of All Creatures of Our God and King. Fairly upbeat, the refrain has the possibility of the first half as an echo thing – men singing a phrase then echoed by the women, before the whole community singing together as one.   As with all of my songs, they are copyright linked to my publisher: Willow Publishing; so please include mention of Willow in your CCLI recording and acknowledgements.

I’m keen to know how the song goes.  Hopefully by late next week, Dale and I will have put together backing and vocal tracks available through my Together to Celebrate site.

MEN: Sing hosanna WOMEN: Sing hosanna
MEN: Sing hosanna WOMEN: Sing hosanna
ALL: Sing hosanna, sing hosanna
Jesus come in peace, to save

Not by might
You come to save
Come to set us free
But by grace
and life and peace
Jesus, Saviour, Lord
blessed be

Sing hosanna …

Shout to all … Jerusalem
Your king comes to you now
Prince of peace, from David’s Son
Lay your branches
Before him, bow

MEN: Sing hosanna WOMEN: Sing hosanna
MEN: Sing hosanna WOMEN: Sing hosanna
ALL: Sing hosanna, sing hosanna
Jesus come in peace, to save
Sing hosanna, sing hosanna
Jesus come in peace, to save
