In this video, you will hear our enhanced piano accompaniment throughout. Vocals sing the melody for the first verse and a violin countermelody is added on the second.
Words for this song were written by Anna Johnson (1892-1979). She was a feature writer for the Deseret News and also a prolific poet. The music is by Alexander Schreiner (1901-1987), tabernacle organist for 53 years! Brother Schreiner wrote tunes for over 100 of Sister Johnson’s poems. He also composed the music for nine hymns in the current LDS hymnbook.
