Description #2: The writer of the music of this song actually worked with Johnny Mercer. I would later meet him personally. He lived to be 100. His name was Johnny Lange. The song had been one in a compilation of music that I received as a young girl. While playing the piano, it was always one of the songs in the book that I could easily manage. So I gravitated to it. As I grew to learn the song and play it more and more, it began to speak deeply to my heart. To this day, it is one that ministers to others as well. Thank you, Johnny, for what you brought to this world. A true legacy piece.
