SOLO:  A Song of Joy by Allen Pote; Maria Schafer, soprano

How good it is to sing God’s praises, for God is gracious and worthy to be praised.  How good it is to sing God’s praises, to sing with joy and thanksgiving to God.  Who sends the rain for the earth, and makes the grass and the flowers grow.  Who sends the gentle breezes, and makes the water flow.  For God will heal the brokenhearted and will bind up their wounds.  The Lord lifts up the heavy laden, and will give them strength. [based on Psalm 147]
