Rejoice in the Lord Always (and again I say rejoice)

The composer of this folk style song is unknown, and the lyrics are based on Philippians 4:4.

It may be sung as a round, or straight through.

Although many children's choirs have sung it, it is appropriate with all age groups, and the tune has various arrangement options.

Many printed arrangements set it in the key of G, which makes some notes very high.  The sheet music below drops it to F for this reason.     Also, many printed versions sharpen the 2nd note in bars 3 and 7, but this has not been done here as it's no reflected in many of the recorded versions.

Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice!
Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice!
