Thread Name: Songs of hope and healing
Subject: RE: BS: Songs of hope and healing
One that nobody's mentioned is "Row On." A whole bunch of us gathered around a pay phone up in Connecticut one May to sing it to Jan Harmon, who was very ill and battling leukemia. I don't know who benefited more, Jan or the singers who needed to do something to touch Jan and help all of us sing the fear away. No matter how many times I hear the song, I always hear Dick Swain leading the group on that occasion. The chorus:

Row on, row on, another day
May shine with brighter light,
Ply, ply the oars, and pull away,
There's dawn beyond the night.

Perhaps Joe Offer can help me out with a blue clicky thing to the DT (click). Kathy
