    I heard this often when I was a kid, on morning AM radio. My mother also used to sing it to me at bedtime; “Count your blessings” was one of her go-to phrases.
    I sent you an indigenous take on “A Huron Carol” back in christmastide; you said you hadn’t know of the Jesuits’ use of song in their conversion efforts.
    Here’s another instance : from Mali Obomsawin’s album “Sweet Tooth” (Out Of Your Head Records), released October 28 2023.
    Obomsawin is a member of the Abenaki First Nation; the third track here is “Wawasint8da,” a Catholic hymn depicting Jesus’ descent into Hell to save non-Catholic souls, translated from Latin into the Abenaki language by early French Jesuit priests who lived among them.
