Originally written for the Children’s Choir at St. Paul’s United Church in Perth.
My forensic guess is that Pamela made the recording below several years after she had moved from Perth to Ottawa, so the song wasn’t fresh in her mind. This was take #4. In earlier takes, she stumbled over typos in her sketchy notes, so I figure she paused and typed out the full verses as given with the tune below. This time she got the words right, so please ignore the inconsistencies in the chords and the catches in her voice. Determination and perfectionism have limits!
She used the song at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ottawa in 2018, and on other occasions. I have a recording of it at a singing workshop, date and location unknown. Fill me in if you remember.
