Dearly beloved n Christ,

Praise the Lord!

I am Thomas Mathew. from Karunagappally.

By His grace,I am the composer of Maramon Convention songs,Mal priyanne,Ennesunayakanne,En priyan valamkarathil pidichenne,Aapathuvelakali,aanandavelakalil

Attached  please find  an  audio format of  the world famous song,Precious Lord,  composed by an American song writer,the late Mr.Thomas Dorsey
 and  another format of   its  Malayalam version .and a  beautiful  and  meaningful  picture  format of  flying eagles.

Our dear Lord wonderfully enabled me to translate it  without using disrespectful pronouns like,Nee ,Ninte  etc. and  quite compromising to 
its original lines. and sing its both versions.

Thomas  Dorsey was a very good pianist and music director.While he was conducting  a music programme in Chicago,in the year 1932,witnessed by thousands and thousands  
of people,he received a telegram informing  him that his beloved  wife passed away soon after she delivered a baby boy.

Though he managed to finish off the programme,he suddenly rushed to see his deceased wife.Then he came to know that  his only  begotten son also expired.
Their dead bodies were buried in the  same casket.

Bearing the unbearable bereavement,he asked the  Lord,why  this adversity caused to him.He became too reluctant to witness to the Lord  and even  to play his  piano 
He felt that he was totally forsaken,as nobody  attempted to console and comfort him on his bereavement.  One fine day,his friend invited him to  play  a  piano.
While he was moving his fingertips on its keys, shedding tears, suddenly he felt an anointment from the Holy Spirit. and  composed the  song ,Precious Lord .

While  the whole world is  being  frightened  by   Covid-19 and we  are  all passing through  the most  difficult   days,as never witnessed in the history of the world,
let  us sing this song and cling to our Lord and be courageous and confident  to confront all consequences ahead ,  hoping for the best and  preparing  for  the  worst,,just like
 the  eagles fly  braving  all adversities  and  stretching  their  both wings  and .  looking forward.  

Kindly view the video formats  of  songs  given by our Lord in my tongue telecast and posted in You Tube  by Power Vision and Athmeya Yathra TV channels 
and visualized and  posted by Manorama Music  searching the link,thomasmathewkarunagappally.

Please feel free to contact me  over my whats app phone  number  9497144845,if you like to have its  music score sheet or by a  word in reply to this e-mail.

Yours in His glad  service,

Thomas Mathew,Karunagappally
