I heard this song being sung in a dream I had last night. Today my mother told me that my Father was singing this song when he passed away. He died over four years ago and she never told this until today. Yesterday was his birthday. I can not possibly convey to you how meaningful it is to me understand the meaning of Kum ba yah. Thank you and may God bless you.
