Songs Ideas for Holy Thursday and Good Friday 2019
Our Blessing Cup by Haas/Haugen (GIA) from the collection Psalms for the Church Year vol. 1
I Am Yours-Consume Me Completely by Trevor Thomson (WLP) from the CD In Shadow and In Light and found in the collection More Voices as One vol. 2 listen “Bread of Life, Wine of Peace, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity
Pange, Lingua/Sing, My Tongue (traditional chant) – for the transfer of the Eucharist
Table of Plenty by Dan Schutte (OCP) “Come to the feast of heaven and earth!”
At the Cross (Love Ran Red) by Tomlin et al Capitol CMG/Brentwood-Benson/CCLI) “At the cross…where your love ran red and my sin washed white.”
Behold the Lamb of God by Matt Maher (spiritandsong.com) from the CD Overflow – I have also found that the refrain from this song works well to further enhance the reading of the Passion, which is, of course, very lengthy. Together with your liturgist and priests, consider 3 or 4 points during the reading to pause and sing this refrain with the assembly.
In Christ Alone by Getty/Townend (Capitol CMG/CCLI) “Scorned by the ones He came to save, Till on that cross as Jesus died, The wrath of God was satisfied, For every sin on Him was laid…”
Jesus, Messiah by Reeves/Carson/Cash/Tomlin (Capitol CMG/Music Services/CCLI) “He became sin who knew no sin…all our hope is in you…”
*Strength for the Journey by Michael John Poirier found in the collection Voices As One vol. 1 – I have also found that the refrain from this song works well to further enhance the reading of the Passion, which is, of course, very lengthy. Together with your liturgist and priests, consider 3 or 4 points during the reading to pause and sing this refrain with the assembly.
The Wonderful Cross by Tomlin/Watts/Walt/Reeves/Mason (Capitol CMG/CCLI) “When I survey the wondrous cross on which the Prince of Glory died…”
What Wondrous Love Is This? arranged by Josh Blakesley (spiritandsong.com)
