Hosanna Singing Time Idea

This idea comes from A Children’s Songbook Companion.

You and the teachers sing the song.  Post the words using this flip chart format.

Camille's Primary Ideas: posting words for singing time, singing time flip charts

Have the children listen for how many times the word “hosanna” is sung [3].

Sing just the word “hosanna” and ask the children to echo it back to you. Then sing the entire song, inviting the children to sing “hosanna” as you indicate.

Challenge the children to find the four rhyming “-ing” words. [RING, KING, SING, BRING].

Write those words on the board.  Then sing to check the order, bringing the children in on the hosannas.

Jesus Is called our “Heavenly King.” Listen for a word near the end of the song that describes this King. [Triumphant] Explain that “All hail, triumphant King” is another expression of praise.

Help the children sing in a rejoicing, majestic manner. Let the children sing the echo. Trade parts with the children singing the melody and you singing the echo.

After it’s been learned, pass out bells and ensure each child gets a few turns to ring the bells.  Find more details for using handbells in Primary.

  1. I just purchased a basic set and haven't told anyone yet (I'm really shocked my 4 year old hasn't ratted me out – thank goodness all the other ones are not in primary) So I think I am going to break them out as "present" for Easter with this song (that I have never sung before, but playing on the lds website it seems easy enough)We'll see, I have a big Easter Singing Time for all of Sharing time thing (yes, that I still have to completely flesh out)that I am planning.

  2. Camille, Quick question, do you have a group of children sing the descant while you have bell ringers, or do you just ring the bells. I haven't decided which to do yet, and was wondering if you have a reason for choosing one way or the other.

  3. Hi Pepper!

    Great question and I should have clarified in my post – I don't have anyone sing the descant. You totally could, but it's just too many moving parts for me ;). I just have the bell choir ring the bells on the descant. Only singing is done on the melody. I hope that answers your question.


  4. Hi Camille, I've wanted to use the Bells (passed down from former Primary Chorister) and this is the perfect way to Start with Hosanna. I want to have a special EASTER Primary celebration and this is just the best idea ! thanks so much for the ideas here. Keep up the great work.
