This 18th century church choral of unknown authorship was arranged as a gospel song in 1967 by Edwin Hawkins.
In 1968, Oh Happy Day was recorded by Northern California State Youth Choir (founded by Hawkins himself) on the album Let Us Go into the House of the Lord. Album sales at first were not good until it came to the attention of San Francisco radio broadcasters. This was followed by an enormous demand for a single release. This single was the first gospel song to make it on the international charts, and it even won Edwin Hawkins a Grammy! This song has had innumerable interpreters: Aretha Franklin, Joan Baez, Elvis Presley, Nick Cave and George Harrison (the last two took parts of the song into their own compositions - Cave in Deanna, Harrison in My Sweet Lord).
