No 339 Philippians 4:6
by Bobby Mcferring, arrangement by Dorothy Gates
This music was written for the New York Staff Band´s trip to Jaaica in 2012. It is a fun marriage of two songs, the Sunday School chorus "If Your´re Happy and You Know It" with Jamaica´s own Bobby McFerrin´s, "Don´t Worry, Be Happy". The Title encapsulates the thought behind the arrangement:
"Don´t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let your petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns (The Message)"
