My Fellow Travelers,
As soon as it “hit me” I quickly grabbed a sharpie, the nearest writing tool, and a stack of old newspapers in the shed, ready for recycling, and scribbled out the wholesong, words and music, as fast as my hand
I was amazed at the perfection of the words, when done, and the simplicity of the tune.
My parish, St Joseph of the Forest in Silver Springs, FL immediately loved it and found it easy to sing.
We christened it as our Parish song.
I purposely did not copyright this, because it was a gift to me and I wanted to make it a gift to the whole
world. This means you may use it, share it, make as many copies of it as you like, keeping my name on it as composer, and enjoy this connection with St Joseph any time of the year.
This beautiful statue was carved by Ray Adams of Silver Springs, FL,
out of a block of cement, using a chain saw!
It graces the entrance of St Joseph of the Forest Catholic Church
