By themselves, songs cannot change the world. But they move people, and people change the world. Songs can become the driving energy that unites people in their faith and in their vision and action for a world of justice and peace.
Hosanna! is a collection of 89 songs for people whose journey of faith embraces the themes and challenges of justice and peace. Included with the songs are prayers, scriptures and psalms with singing and drumming responses.
Whether your own pilgrimage is literal or metaphorical, here are pilgrimage songs old and new from around the world. Some songs can be sung when pilgrims gather together to rest, sing and pray together. Others express themes of peace, care for creation, land and food justice, health and healing, gender and sexuality, some of the guiding themes of the work of the World Council of Churches.
