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

This is a folk-song expressing joy in the lord.  The words are based on Philippians 4:4.

The composer is unknown.

Although many children's choirs have sung it, it is appropriate with all age groups, and the tune has various arrangement options, both as a round, or straight through.

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 not done in many of the recorded versions.
