When the Torah is taken out and is being carried around songs are being sung. I would like to know which songs exist for this part of the service and where I could find traditional tunes for those songs.

    Did you look in a siddur? – ezra Dec 14 '18 at 19:29
  • @ezra yes indeed, but I’m curious if others use different songs. I once heard Shlosha Devarim and Ki MiTzion also. P.s. I noticed you said ‘Veyehi Binsoa Ha’Aron’ but isn’t that song used when carrying out the Torah of the Ark? I’m looking for songs when it is carried around at the moment people touch it with the tzittzit, books, and taken to the bimah. – Levi Dec 15 '18 at 5:39

Here is one such song, with text shown. The words are taken from the prayers said as the Torah is brought to the Bimah.

    @DoubleAA, I'm one of only a few folks in my schul who even say it. – Noach MiFrankfurt Dec 14 '18 at 20:18
  • @ezra, the sefer is invariably not removed until after ויהי בנסע is sung. I don't recite בריך שמיה (surprise, surprise) so they come out immediately after ברוך שנתן וכי׳ – Noach MiFrankfurt Dec 14 '18 at 20:19
