I too loved! this version of the song. It was on a country music station. It was very popular and it was a male singer around 1980 81. I have never been able to find it.

I know which one you mean. I heard it in the 80s in the Philippines. Maybe you could ask radio stations in the Philippines. Been looking for it myself when I went back to the Pholippines. The Filipinos know the song but nobody knows the male narrator and I cannot find his version anymore just others singing to the same tune with a choir. What a mystery. The narrator identity

Edgel Grows had a hit. Can be found on youtube. I think the version your thinking of has this lyric that none of the others do. He gave me strength to face the coming NEW day. I did find it, but my computer crashed and I lost the info :(

It Was said that the singer/s you refer to is "Guy & Ralna" in the 80s though the poem was written on 1930s. I have the mp3 of the original song you are looking for.  Just reach me thru my email.
