I have included her moving hymn “How Can We Sing a Joyful Song?” in Blue Christmas and Longest Night services.
Tune: “Lift up your heads, O Mighty Gates”
How can we sing a joyful song?
O God, our sorrows hem us in.
When pain and grief seem all too strong,
How can we sing a joyful hymn? (verse 1 of 4)
