WATERMEAD STORY The composing of this hymn co-incided with the bringing to church for the first time of Ruth, just a few days old. It was decided to dedicate the hymn to Ruth and it was first sung at her baptism by her Godmother, Lorraine - who was also the first person to record the sung version on 'Life - a jouney shared'. Lorraine also designed the cover for our recording 'Mary our Mother' which also became a series of Marian cards and bookmarks, 'Mary through the Seasons'. The song has since been sung many times by various singers and is available on four of our recordings - Life - a journey shared, Vivan los Ninos, People of God and I Call you Friends. The words of the hymn have been used in a mass card, a laminate, a notecard and on our Sacrament cards. The hymn is also available as downloadable sheet music. BACKGROUND TO OUR LAMINATED HYMN WORDINGS Making our hymns available as presentation laminate began when Lee asked if the words of ‘O Child’ could be framed as a gift for a new baby in her family. Other requests followed, asking for framed hymns for a variety of occasions, and once designs have been set we added them to this collection. We have them available as framed prints in our shop - but not through the website. People can, however, ask us for unlaminated prints and then frame them themselves (the pricing is the same).
