Week 4 Activities

You Shall Go Out with Joy

​You shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace;

The mountains and the hills will break forth before you;

There’ll be shouts of joy, and all the trees of the field will clap, will clap their hands.

And all the trees of the field will clap their hands;

The trees of the field will clap their hands;

The trees of the field will clap their hands while you go out with joy.
