This song was filmed and recorded in Phoenix, Arizona, December 2017.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the quotation and chords:

“God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart. Illumine my powers. I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. Thou art my Guide and my Refuge. I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being. O God! I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me. I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.
O God! Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself. I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.”

Repeat: A# Fmaj7 C C

O God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart.

Illumine my powers. I lay all my affairs in Thy hand.
Thou art my Guide and my Refuge.

I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being.

I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me.

I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.

O God! Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself. I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
