The Story Behind "You Can Have a Song in Your Heart"

"You Can Have a Song in Your Heart" was not one of Ira Stanphill's most well know songs, but it has an incredible message. Does anyone know the story behind this song? I know he also wrote "I know Who Holds Tomorrow" within 4 years of "You Can Have a Song..", so I was wondering if there was a real life experience that came into play.
