I became familiar with this song when I was a very young, around 6 or 7 years old, thanks to my mother who would play it on her piano and sing its words. Little did I expect that a few years later this song would give me some comfort and courage when she suddenly died. Now more than six decades later it gives comfort and courage once again, as I, along with the rest of humanity, find ourselves in the middle of a deadly pandemic. “Walk on, Walk on with hope in our heart” will give us a lift in these difficult times.
