Text Information:

This engaging song from central Africa is based on an affirmation that recurs in numerous psalms (34:8; 73:1, 100:5; 135:3; 145:9) as well as several other books of the Hebrew Scriptures. Both the brief text (in English, Hebrew, and Shona) and the musical parts are easily learned.
