Songs We Sing — “Zimbabwe Alleluia”

Hello, Song Leaders!

Here’s a joyful Alleluia refrain from Zimbabwe.  We sometimes use it as we are regathering folks as cleanup wraps up.  It’s a melody of four short phrases, all using the same word.

Alleluia
Alleluia
Alleluia
Alleluia

We loop it over and over.  You can also invite hand claps.

Here’s a recording from of the Alleluias plus some psalm refrains from Saint Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church in San Francisco.  Note that we generally omit the psalm refrains and keep looping the alleluias.

Enjoy!
