Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below in Swedish and in English, followed by the chords below:


“O ni uppriktiga, ni som längtar, ni som är dragna som av en magnet, ni som har rest er för att tjäna Guds sak, för att upphöja Hans ord och sprida Hans ljuva väldofter vitt och brett! Jag har läst ert utmärkta brev, vackert till stilen, vältaligt till orden, djupt till betydelsen och jag prisade Gud och tackade Honom för att ha kommit till er hjälp och gjort er i stånd att tjäna Honom i Hans vidsträckta vingård.”


“O ye sincere ones, ye longing ones, ye who are drawn as if magnetized, ye who have risen up to serve the Cause of God, to exalt His Word and scatter His sweet savours far and wide! I have read your excellent letter, beautiful as to style, eloquent as to words, profound as to meaning, and I praised God and thanked Him for having come to your aid and enabled you to serve Him in His widespreading vineyard.”


Repeat: G D Am C

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)
