One of the songs that Rabbi Gershon Mendel Garelik would frequently sing was “V’haya Bayom Hahu”, a classic song describing the geulah.
The song is a decades-old song on the possuk which depicts how Moshiach would gather all Yidden at the time of the geulah. Reb Gershon Mendel would frequently sing it, to the point that to many, the niggun is automatically associated with him. By his Monday levaya at 770 Eastern Parkway, the niggun was one of the few sung by the participants.
In the attached video, one can see how Reb Gershon Mendel gets emotional when singing the song by a farbrengen.
Listen to a rendition of the song released recently by singer Simche Friedman and brothers, in a family-recorded album. The track is a medley, and the second half is a different song with the same words.
