It was written and copy writed by LAURETTA P. BURNS in 1957.
Since the 1970's this poem has been claimed by a number of people who could not prove ownership. Also the title has been changed to Let Go Let God, as if that makes it right to take it .
I do not resent the good her poem has done for others. However, I do resent the fact that credit is not given where credit is due. My mother passed away never earning a dime she didn't have to fight for; from the publication of her poem; while others have copied, sold and put into books what is not theirs to take. When approached told and proved it was hers she was never compensated for the use of it.
MOM was a loving giving soul, that if asked she would have gladly given permission without benefiting financially. It did not have to be stolen.
If you share this poem, at least have the COURTESY to attach her name to it.
