Sr. John Fisher, SABS sings a devotional song that she learned at about the age of seven, in the 1940s. The song has a sentimental value to Sr. Fisher who currently works as a missionary in Tanzania. The reference to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the second strophe is an indication that the composer of the text lived after the time when the Spanish missionaries introduced the devotion to the Sacred Heart, in the seventeenth or eighteenth century. It so happened that we made this recording at the CMI Provincial House (Kalamaserry,Kerala) chapel , that is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
