Пісні бабусі:Baba’s Song 🌻

August 22, 2019

Hi dear friends and readers. After many long silent years, this is me learning (attempting) to speak/sing my native Ukrainian. Whew! This was a tough one for me…on many levels. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued support and kind words. 🙏🏻

With love and gratitude,

Nina Zain

This is for you, Baba.

I Am A Poor Wayfaring Stranger.

This beautiful hymn (and others) can be found in the public domain here:


“I am a poor Wayfaring Stranger,

Traveling through this world of woe.

Yet, there’s no sickness, toil or danger,

In that bright world to which I go.

I’m going there to see my Father.

I’m going there, no more to roam.

I’m only going over Jordan.

I’m only going over home.”

Southern American Folk Hymn

With love and gratitude,

Nina Zain 😊

This is me learning to read music again after many years– with the help of: https://www.imusic-school.com//en/tools/online-piano-keyboard/.

A lovely little hymn I Am With You words written by Fred. P. Morris and music by Robert Harkness. This song (and many others in the public domain) can be found here: http://pdhymns.com/

For my friend who is feeling sad and lonely today. You are not alone. 😊🙃😊

With love and gratitude,
