This song chain starts with the first known version of this tune, namely an American Christian folk song I literally just encountered (and had otherwise never heard about) called "Canaan's Happy Shore" (a.k.a. "Say, Brothers, Will You Meet Us"), apparently first written down in 1850:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8N8dBex8lY8
This is where the tune for the chorus of the American (Union) marching song "John Brown's Body" (first performed and then published, both in 1861, during the Civil War) comes from:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jso1YRQnpCI
As does the chorus of the far more famous American patriotic song "Battle Hymn of the Republic" written in the same year:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MsPr5guMXk
Almost a century later, in 1951, a Bengali composer named Salil Chowdhury took this same tune, apparently from the chorus of "John Brown's Body," and made this Bengali patriotic song called "Jonmobhumi" (a.k.a. "Dhonno Ami Jonmechhi Ma Tomar Dhulite"). He made lots and lots of song chains in various Indian languages. This is a version of that song sung in 1998 (there are others on the Internet but none I can find that are as good as this one in terms of audio quality):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNE-C7vsNy4
Later, in 1975, he (probably unwittingly) made this tune come around full circle by using it for the Christian religious song "Dukhithare" in the opening credits for the Malayalam movie Thomasleeha
! The movie is about the legend of Apostle Thomas (depicted in the video) spreading Christianity to Kerala. The song is about the promise of heaven (to Christians). People in some parts of the world at least associated the movies with prostitution, and in India, going out in general was generally associated with ritual impurity. For this reason, the Malayalam movie industry used songs like this to attract Christian viewers and show them that movies could also spread messages they find appealing, not just romance stories or whatever:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDQ1dtQgfaA
The two lines repeated at 0:51-0:59, 1:06-1:14, 2:06-2:13, and 2:21-2:28 are basically lifted straight out of the Lord's Prayer and mean 'Your name is being hallowed; Your Kingdom is coming'. This Malayalam movie song
is pretty much just the Lord's Prayer (with slightly more fanciful lyrics) set to music (and is another example of the movie industry trying to appeal to Christian viewers).
