OH Happy Day!!!

I love all types of music.  From heavy metal to gospel, to everything in between.  Music fills many voids in my life.  I have to have it in my life everyday.  I don't have a favorite group or favorite type.  I've said this before, to me, "Music is like the flowers of the world, there are too many and they're too beautiful to just have one favorite!!!"  I couldn't possibly choose just one flower or one singer or type of music. 

Gospel music is among all the types that I love.  The thing about gospel music is that is definitely fills me with the holy spirit.  It always has since I was a teenager.  The thing was that I couldn't understand the feeling I was having in my soul back then.  I just knew that when I heard gospel music it filled me with this incredible feeling of comfort, happiness, peace and love.  I didn't recoginze this feeling because I came from such a disfunctional childhood.  It wasn't until my 20's that I could identify the feeling of knowing and loving the LORD with hearing gospel music.  It was the same amazing feeling!!!  It makes me feel incredibly high.  I have many favorite gospel songs but my absolute favorite one is called, "OH HAPPY DAYS,"  This song was written by  Edwin Hawkins and sung by The Edwin Hawkins Singers. 

  Happy day, (oh happy day)
When jesus washed, (when jesus washed)
When jesus washed, (when jesus washed)
Jesus washed, (when jesus washed)
Washed my sins away (oh happy day)
Oh happy day, (oh happy day)

Oh happy day, (oh happy day)
Oh happy day, (oh happy day)
When jesus washed, (when jesus washed)
When jesus washed, (when jesus washed)
When my jesus washed, (when jesus washed)
Washed my sins away

He taught me how (oh taught me how)
To watch, (to watch)
Fight and pray (to fight and pray), fight and pray
(and taught me how and live rejoicing)
And live rejoicing every, everyday, everyday

Oh happy day, (oh happy day)
Oh happy day, (oh happy day)
Jesus washed, (when jesus washed)
When jesus washed, (when jesus washed)
When jesus washed, (when jesus washed)
My sins away (oh happy day)
And taught each other happy day (oh happy day)

He taught me how (he taught me how, how)
To watch, (to watch)
Fight and pray (sing, sing, come on and sing),
Fight and pray
(and till me, yeah, yeah, come on everybody)
And live rejoicing every, everyday, everyday
And live rejoicing every, everyday,
(sing like me, yeah) everyday

Oh happy day, (oh happy day)
Oh happy day, (oh happy day)
Oh happy day, (oh happy day)
Oh happy day, (oh happy day)
