Oh Happy Day

Lyricist(s): 

This was originally from the mid 18th century, and the melody changed over time. Edwin Hawkins arranged it in the 1960s to a more contemporary funky rhythm. Even though he was 'just' the arranger, it sounds from the wikipedia page, anyway, that he changed enough of it to consider him a co-composer at this point. -JS
