Usually transcribed in G, this setting is lowered to E, a much more singable key. The capo chords for guitar are optional, but many guitarists prefer the key of D to E, as it avoids a B barre chord.

Of course you can transpose it even lower (or higher) if needed. At St. John Catholic in Westminster, MD., we actually sing a version of Sing We of the Blessed Mother sung to the tune of "Joyful Joyful…" in C (also available here on Scoreexchange) for meditation on Sodality weeks. Singing it that low lends itself to a more reverent and meditative setting (although it does take the melody down to a low G!).

God bless you!
