After an energetic introduction, the melody of this familiar Hebrew folk song appears in different bell ranges, always accompanied by moving sixteenth-note patterns. The bass line drives the piece along, sometimes with rung notes, sometimes with plucked or malleted notes. Ringers must always know where the melody is and ensure that it is heard, especially when intertwined with the accompaniment figures. The Hebrew title is translated Let Us Be Joyful or Let Us Rejoice. Suitable for concert or worship, this arrangement is fun to ring, and the haunting melody will linger in the minds of those who hear it.
