    The link took me to the Youtube page with a bunch of videos and the top row was changing all the time. Nothing marked "O Happy Day".
    Did I do something wrong?

    The video was taken down for copyright reasons.

    O happy day, that fixed my choice
    On Thee, my Saviour and my God!
    Well may this glowing heart rejoice,
    And tell its raptures all abroad.

    Happy day! Happy day!
    When Jesus washed my sins away!
    He taught me how to watch and pray,
    And live rejoicing every day;
    Happy day! Happy day!
    When Jesus washed my sins away.

    This was a favourite song of the D.L. Moody crusades of the late 1800's.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    That was one of the first songs I learnt when I first got to find out about Christianity - that it was about repentence and following Jesus. I remember a coach load of us singing it to and from the Festival of Light at Trafalgar Square, London 1971. It was also where I bought my first Bible.:) Happy Memories.
