Notes: This song functions well as a processional or an entrance into worship. Once it is known by a community, it is not necessary to sing from the page. A leader can sing out the text for the next stanza while the congregation sings the final syllable (e.g., singing “Come praise the Savior!”). Accompany with djembes, shakers, triangle, cowbell, hand claps—anything that will enliven the singing without overwhelming it. When used as a frame for the psalm, keep a soft drum pattern going under the reading.

More media are available on the text authority and tune authority pages.
