Repeat the Joy
Text: Kyle Pederson
Let there be joy; sound joy, live joy, repeat the joy!
Put away your sadness,
put away your hate;
Put away the problems that you make that steal your joy.
Have hope, be peace,
give grace, live love,
and let there be joy.
Repeat your sounding joy; sing it out, give it out, live it out!
NOTES: Commissioned by Beau Chant and premiered at the 2017 MN-ACDA convention, this piece has drive, rhythm, a rockin’ piano accompaniment, and a whole lotta joy.
