  • Tap the top of the cup as it sits on the ground or your lap 4 times using your right hand, left hand, right, then left. “The prophecies”
  • Hold the cup and tap it along the ground or your lap moving from left to right with 4 distinct taps following each beat. “of long ago”. On the next two lines, you can instead of going right to left, move from low down to up high tapping the air with the cup for risen and revealed.
  • For the next two measures you’ll flip over the cup and tap it down twice, then flip over once more (so the open part is facing downward) and tap down again twice. “were now at last” and “fulfilled”
  • Repeat 3 more times for the rest of the lines of the verse following the same pattern.
  • Hold the cup to your mouth for “Hosanna”
  • Pass the cup behind your back on “blessed be the name of the”

  • Have the children help you come up with a new action instead of passing the cup behind your back. What might they like to try instead! Maybe toss and catch?
