About Oh Happy Day

"Oh Happy Day" was a 1952 surprise hit song, one of the first whose initial popularity was driven by teenagers rather than support from the music industry. The song was originally recorded and copyrighted by Don Howard, a high school student who had learned the song secondhand; the song's originator, Nancy Binns Reed, heard the song and within weeks of its release sued to claim songwriter credit. Reed and Howard eventually settled, with each receiving co-writer credits. Concurrently with Howard's original acoustic pop recording, concurrent cover versions by two established acts, the Lawrence Welk Orchestra (whose version featured a now-famous basso profondo lead vocal by Larry Hooper) and The Four Knights, were also released; for a time in 1953, all three versions were top-10 hits.

The sun is shining, oh, happy day-ay
No more troubles and no skies are gray-ay
Ever since you said those words to me

You said you loved me, I know it's tru-ue
My life's complete, dear, for now I have you-ou
Oh, happy day for lucky me

You said you loved me, I know it's true
My life's complete, dear, for now I have you
Oh, happy day for lucky me

Oh, happy day for lucky me
