While our hymnal, Singing the Living Tradition, does not list an author for this hymn, #395, our search found that the hymn was actually composed by William B. Bradbury (1816-1868), https://hymnary.org/person/Bradbury_William.
The message of this song is simple, but encouraging: Sing! Rejoice! This hymn reminds us to find joy in our lives no matter what else is going on.
This recording is done as a round, and the lyrics are posted on the video. The recording is by Les Tacy, Music Director of Heritage, and the video and sound mixing is by Steph Tacy. Enjoy this simple, uplifting hymn this week!
