  1. Thanks Sam.
    It was very moving.
    Left me feeling utterly sad – don’t know why.
    Best wishes to all the family,


  2. Thanks Sam for sharing this age old hymn.We all know that it was written in colonial times by an Englishman with a strong christian bias.However,when you take religion out of the words, the message is clear, there is love for the land and it’s people.The call is for blessings on our beautiful home and peace and good will on everyone living there.What we need now is hope and blessings as our home struggles to cope with the pandemic and the economy.What we need is unity in diversity to navigate us through this difficult time.Our bonds as humans with a common identity is more than what divides us. Warm regards to all.Eddie.
