“What A Wonderful Word!”

Sunday, March 8, your Choir will sing a jazz song first recorded by Louis Armstrong in 1967.  There is little that is more American than jazz.  Originating in the African-American communities of New Orleans in the late 19th Century, jazz became known world-wide as “America’s Classical Music”.  The theme for this Sunday is “Wisdom and Creativity”.  This song epitomizes American creativity with a worshipful appreciation of people and the natural world.

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world….
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people goin’ by
I see friends shakin’ hands sayin’ how do you do
They’re really sayin’ I love you
I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself…
What a wonderful world!
