Joyful entrance processional

"The God of All Grace" by Ricky Manalo, CSP

During the liturgy’s entrance procession, the gathered assembly can sing this song’s primarily step-wise refrain while looking up instead of looking at a book. Whether at a parish like mine with a keyboard and small choir singing in unison, or done with organ, SATB choir and full brass, this song will focus the assembly on the gifts that flow from the God of all grace. And for those gifts, we give thanks, rejoice and sing!
