Quick Overview

Joyful Saints of God is an earnest song of praise taken from a Shaker Heavenly March, built around the verse “Around the throne of God we spy beams of endless glory. We'll bow our faces and we'll cry, holy, holy, holy.” Dietterich suggests that the chorus should march while singing, as the Shakers may have done.
