    Listen, listen, listen to the Word of God.

This Lenten Acclamation for the Gospel can be used in a number of different ways. The simplest way is to sing Group A part. Group B could be used at the end of the Gospel reading to acclaim and respond to the Word of God.

Try singing it as a two-part song. Group A sing it twice through. Group B start singing when Group A have finished once.
