Comforting carillon

From Canon John Goodchild

Sir, - Professor Harrison's article (Comment, 29 August) reminded me of our school-aged son's practice if he was upset. He would climb the tower and use the carillon to play on the bells the tune of the song "Jesus loves me - this I know, For the Bible tells me so. Little ones to him belong, - They are weak, but he is strong."

I couldn't do that, but I can say the words to myself.
