“Joy of the Lord” by Rend Collective

Until I saw this video, I had never heard of “Rend Collective.”  Wikipedia says they are “a Northern Irish Christian experimental, folk rock, worship band originating from Bangor, Northern Ireland.”  I liked the song, its words (at least the ones I could understand), and the energy.  It reminds me of Twila Paris’ 1992 song of the same name.  (Her song is less exuberant, but no less joyful.)

Here’s a video (length 2:45) where two of the artists describe how their joyful performance of this song came about through the pain of a miscarriage.
