My mother was right!

One of my favorite Christmas songs is “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”  Growing up my mother always altered the words to sing, “As the Lord allows” instead of “as the fates allow.”  Well, it turns out that she was just singing the original version — if Wikipedia is to be trusted. (Which. . . )

From the entry:

“In 2001 the 86-year-old composer Hugh Martin, occasionally active as a pianist with religious ministries since the 1980s, wrote an entirely new set of lyrics to the song with John Fricke, “Have Yourself a Blessed Little Christmas,” a religious version of the secular Christmas standard. The song was recorded by gospel female vocalist Del Delker with Martin accompanying her on piano.[10]

In 2002, NewSong lead singer Michael O’Brien noted the line “through the years, we all will be together if the Lord allows,” which was part of the original song, was purged and replaced with “if the fates allow” to remove religious reference when the song was released. He noted while a pastor in a California church in 1990, he had met Martin, who played piano at the church where O’Brien was serving for an evening, and the pastor was told, “That’s the original way I wrote it, so I want you to sing it this way.” [11]
