God Bless This Little Babe, God Protect This Little Babe
Murray sketched a small drawing for an eleven-year-old visitor in 1986. Murray drew a picture of himself in yellow with arms upraised, the traditional praise gesture. Beside the figure stands a table with a small bottle of water, just as the setting appeared in Murray’s bedroom, where he conducted his spiritual readings through the water. He surrounded the figure with writing embellished with gold, gold being a color associated in most ancient cultures (and in Murray’s work) with the sun and power. On the reverse side, Murray scripted a blessing, and raising his bottle of water, spoke these words as he wrote them: “God bless this little babe, God protect this little babe.” Each time he intoned the word “God,” he drew several crosses around the edges of the inscription.
