Be Still and Know That I Am God

"We get nearer to the Lord through music than perhaps through any other thing except prayer."
-- President J. Reuben Clark Jr., in Conference Report, Oct. 1936, 111
"The singing of our sacred hymns, written by the servants of God, has a powerful effect in converting people to the principles of the Gospel, and in promoting peace and spiritual growth."
-- President Heber J. Grant, Improvement Era, Sept. 1940, 522
I LOVE HYMNS, there is a wonderful spirit brought by them like nothing else, and I also like doing pieces that are new. This is both, it is one I prepared to sing in church yesterday in fact. You may not have heard it because it is not in green hymnal, it came from an Ensign several years ago and we added a few embellishments.
Of course there are more vocal errors than I can count on two hands, uh they make me cringe (I really wish I had more
quiet time to work on things like this) but if you don't pay attention to them you get the feeling of this beautiful hymn. Hope you enjoy it.
