Song of Best Wishes​

Date: 03/06/2023 | Source: DPRK Today (En) | Read original version at source

Seventy years have passed since the immortal classic "Song of Best Wishes" was created.

This song is an all-people hymn through which Chairman Kim Jong Il taught the truth with profound idea that President Kim Il Sung precisely means the country, victory and future and that his good health and wellbeing are the destiny of the country and the nation and the happiness of the people.

On June 1, Juche 42 (1953) when the Fatherland Liberation War was at its height, the Chairman wrote a letter in boundless yearning for his father who shouldered the heavy burden of the war.

In the letter he said that his father is the leader of all the Korean people and his health is the happiness of the Korean people, wishing him good health.

Having sent the letter, he composed a song whose lyrics and melody reflect the letter wishing his father good health.

One day in May 1961 when he was at Kim Il Sung University, he sang the song, playing an organ during the break, together with students who took part in the project for expanding the Wasandong-Ryongsong road.

He said to the students that he had not yet titled the song and it would be a good idea to title it "Song of Best Wishes".

The immortal classic "Song of Best Wishes" has been rapidly spread across the country, touching the heartstrings of the Korean people, and is still sung as an all-people hymn.
