Oh Happy Day

Oh Happy Day è una canzone gospel, sviluppata a partire da un inno del XVIII secolo ed incisa dagli Edwin Hawkins Singers nell’album Let Us Go into the House of the Lord del 1967.

Nel 1968 viene pubblicato il singolo, che diviene un hit internazionale, raggiungendo fra l’altro il 2º posto della classifica britannica ed il 4° di quella statunitense.

Il testo, cantato in prima persona singolare sebbene eseguito in genere da cori, celebra il “giorno felice” (oh happy day) in cui Gesù “lavò i miei peccati” (washed my sins away) e insegnò a “guardare, lottare e pregare” ed a essere felici ogni giorno.  Questa canzone è un inno alla rinascita e l’inizio di un nuovo periodo… un Nuovo Anno.
