Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
Earlier, I quoted from this simple, lovely song:

Round Our Skiff

Round our skiff's be God's aboutness
Ere she try the deeps of sea

Sea-shell frail for all her stoutness
Unless Thou her helmsman be

Text: Trad. Hebrides    Music: 1984 Kathy Wonson Eddy
"Kathy kindly sent me this song among many others a few years ago: she is a great source of liturgical choral music. I have sung it with our chorus and another smaller group, but Carol and I wanted to keep it in our repertoire, so here's a third way to sing it. Kathy lives in Randolph, Vermont." Gordon Bok

(Round Our Skiff is recorded on the album Herrings in the Bay)
