Introduced to me by Dr. Paul Neal, my friend and former youth choir student who is now a university choral director. Upon suffering the loss of a loved one, Paul sent me the link to this anthem sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and he took the time to send the text to me, as well. I was moved and am still moved by this magnificent, though simple piece. Orchestra makes it heavenly. Thank you, Paul Neal!
