10 Palm Sunday Worship Songs 2023

1. Hosanna – The Belonging Co, Kari Jobe

Humble King
You chose the road
That led to suffering
Nothing was spared
To prove Your love for me

The first Palm Sunday worship song on our list is “Hosanna”. These lyrics hint at Jesus’ humility in following God’s will and His willingness to walk the difficult road of suffering for us. His ultimate self-sacrifice on Palm Sunday symbolizes the extraordinary nature of His love, exemplifying that nothing was too costly to demonstrate it.

The Palm Sunday story highlighted this grace and compassion as He entered Jerusalem to a triumphant welcome and heralded in a new covenant between God and humanity.

2. Break Every Chain – Jesus Culture

All sufficient sacrifice
So freely given
Such a price
Bought our redemption
Heaven’s gates swing wide

These lyrics speak to the power of Jesus and His ultimate sacrifice, which is symbolized by His entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. The power of his name, freely given and bestowed upon us as a gift through His death on the cross, was enough to break every chain – whether sin, darkness, or death – that keeps us in bondage. Our redemption and salvation cost Him everything, but the gates of heaven opened wide and we are now free in the name of Jesus.

3. Shout Hosanna – Passion

We worship You
We shout hosanna
Jesus, He saves
Shout hosanna

These lyrics relate to Palm Sunday in that they depict a celebration of Jesus as the King of Glory and Light, the Giver of Life, and the Savior who bought us with his blood. The lyrics reference the events of Palm Sunday, when people in Jerusalem shouted “Hosanna” as Jesus entered the city on a donkey, recognizing him as their king. 

The lyrics also refer to Jesus’ resurrection, which is celebrated as the ultimate triumph over death and sin. The song emphasizes the power of Jesus and the impact of his sacrifice on the lives of believers, and calls for all to lift up Jesus and shout hosanna in worship and celebration. The repeated refrain of “Shout hosanna / Jesus, He saves” highlights the central message of Palm Sunday, which is that Jesus is the Savior who brought salvation to humanity through his death and resurrection.

4. Shout it Out – Vertical Worship

Shout it out, shout it out
He is risen
Our God is alive in us

These lyrics speak to the power of Jesus, who overcame death and rose again. On Palm Sunday, when He entered Jerusalem on a donkey, His followers proclaimed it as a sign of peace and victory. Because of Jesus’ victory over death and sin, nothing can stop us from claiming freedom in Him.

His love is like the morning sun that rises every day, shining down on us and proclaiming His undying faithfulness. We lift up our voices in praise as we shout out that He has overcome!

5. Behold the Lamb – Passion

Behold the Lamb
The story of redemption
Written on His hands
Jesus, You will reign forevermore
The victory is Yours

These lyrics celebrate the power of Jesus and His sacrificial love for us. On Palm Sunday, He showed us that nothing can stand in His way, not even death. He rode on a donkey into Jerusalem as the King of kings and bore a crown of thorns to demonstrate His willingness to suffer for our salvation.

The greatness of His love is revealed in the cross, where He paid for every sin and was resurrected from the grave. We celebrate by singing endless hallelujahs to His holy name, knowing that He will reign forevermore and victory is secure. When it comes to Palm Sunday worship songs, this is one that can’t be missed.

6. Hosanna – Hillsong Worship

The people sing
Hosanna Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

These lyrics capture the magnitude of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. The crowds cheered for His arrival, as they recognized Him as the King of Glory coming on the clouds with fire and love, washing away all sin. We join in the praise by singing “Hosanna,” meaning “save now” or “praise God.”

These lyrics also serve as a call to action, to seek revival by letting go of our old selves and hearts and allowing Him to break our hearts for what breaks His. By following this call, we will be able to experience true joy and peace that comes from walking into eternity with Him.

7. See A Victory – Elevation Worship

The weapon may be formed
But it won’t prosper
When the darkness falls, it won’t prevail
‘Cause the God I serve knows only how to triumph
My God will never fail

These lyrics are a powerful reminder that the battle is ultimately in God’s hands. This message is especially relevant to Palm Sunday, as Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey to face the greatest battle of His life – His crucifixion for our sins. In spite of the darkness that sought to prevail over Him, Jesus triumphed over death and won the victory.

As believers, we can be encouraged knowing that no matter what battles we face, they belong to God and He will always make sure that victory is ours.

8. Isn’t He (This Jesus)  – The Belonging Co, Natalie Grant

So wonderful, so beautiful
So kind and lovely
Isn’t He? Isn’t He?
Beyond compare
Treasure rich and rare

This song would be a great option on Palm Sunday because its lyrics celebrate the majesty and power of Jesus. It is a reminder of the truth that He alone should be honored, glorified and praised. It speaks to His incomparable worth and reminds us of all the good things He has done and continues to do, while also looking forward to His ultimate victory over death – an important theme on Palm Sunday.

9. What A Beautiful Name – Hillsong Worship

What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing compares to this

This song would be a great option on Palm Sunday because it celebrates the power and authority of Jesus’s Name. It emphasizes His identity even before He came to earth, as well as His willingness to suffer and die for us.

The chorus declares that nothing compares to this Name – the Name of Jesus – and lifts our praises up in worship. On Palm Sunday, we remember with joy the victory which Jesus won over death, sin, and the grave; making His Name powerful forevermore.

10. Victor’s Crown – Darlene Zschech

My delight is found in knowing
That You wear the Victor’s crown
You’re my help and my defender
You’re my Savior and my friend

The final Palm Sunday worship song on our list is “Victor’s Crown”. This song would be a great option on Palm Sunday as it celebrates Jesus’ victory over death and sin, which is the central theme of Palm Sunday. The lyrics emphasize Jesus’ role as the Savior and Victor, with themes of worship and adoration.

The lyrics also allude to Jesus as the Messiah, which is significant in the context of Palm Sunday, as it marks the start of Holy Week and the commemoration of Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem as the Messiah. The song is a powerful expression of faith and devotion that is fitting for the occasion of Palm Sunday.
