UU Hymn: “Over My Head”

Les Tacy

Hymn #30, “Over My Head,” is an African American Spiritual dating from the 19th century.

According to Wikipedia: “While the authorship is unknown, Civil Rights leader Bernice Johnson Reagon changed the traditional words of the song to “Over my head/I see freedom in the air….” In 1995 the National Association for Music Education published a list of songs that “every American should know”, which included “Over My Head.”

Les Tacy, Heritage Church Music Director, sings this song.
