"O Waly, Waly" is a beautiful, well-known melody more commonly known as "The Water Is Wide." Although traditionally considered an Appalachian folk melody, this hymn tune most certainly has its roots in the land of the Celts. Many Scottish & Irish immigrants settled into America's picturesque Appalachian region, and they brought along to the new world their unique instruments and style of music. No doubt, this memorable tune came with them.

Over the years, "O Waly, Waly" has been sung with various hymn texts and psalms. Here, I've chosen to depict Isaac Watts' classic "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross," and I've even included a verse of Lowell Mason's original melody HAMBURG for the middle verse because it so fittingly paints the words: "See, from His head, His hands, His feet. / Sorrow and love flow mingled down."
