    In 1968, this song, "oh happy day" re-emerged from church hymnals to a modernized music arrangement that made a hit song on secular radio stations across america. Whether young people back then listened closely or not it stayed in the top 10 for months it seemed. I still recall this playing often throughout the day and evenings on the radio. I knew personally what this song meant then and now; it is praying through to become a new creature in christ jesus, accepting salvation thru the spirit, acknowledging it was his blood on calvary that made atone for mankind's sins, accepting him as lord and savior in one's life, and following through with submersion water baptism, the act of completeness of being one with christ. That is a happy day when one believes, accepts, and lives a new kind of life that is spirit born in jesus. It was his love that made this 'special' provision for us. That is what this song means to me. Now I am going to practice and sing, "oh happy day" for what the lord has done for me.

    This song has brought back what I have forgotten in my life. That my lord and savior brings joy everyday that I seek him out. He died for us and we are forgiven today and forever. This song makes my heart so full and I just heard it again yesterday in the movie secretariat. Been in pain recently but no more with the lord in my life and beautiful music like this to remind me. Oh happy day! :)

    Rejoice! We are saved from hell when we accept jesus as our lord and savior and repent of our sins. He died for our sins. We are washed by his sacrifical blood. We must remain faithful to jesus. He is our wisdom. He is our strength. He teaches us through the holy bible to fight the devil and evil. He taught us to pray at all times, asking jesus for strength to help us. We are watching and ready for his return.
