More about Connie Stauffer:
I was raised in Thatcher, Utah, a small town west of Tremonton on the north end of the state. Home is where I enjoy being the most. If I leave, it is usually for something very important. To relax or to waste a few minutes, I gravitate to my piano. My favorite thing to do is to turn out the lights when I'm alone and play to my heart's content. This is one way I find ideas for music. Another place where I've gotten more than a few ideas is when I've been exercising, whether it's walking the trails of Alpine, or riding my road bike. I think about my life and the issues of the day while walking, and those moments frequently end with music rattling through my head. I have a husband, five children and eleven grandchildren - all of whom are the light of my life. I'd rather be with any one of them than just about anything. However, I do enjoy my solitude, which is probably why the hobby of writing music has been so appealing to me. My mother was my music teacher until she said I had outgrown her. I then took from a wonderful lady who helped shape me. Oh how I would love to have a sit-down visit with her. She probably knows me better than anyone, as she was there as I was in the process of becoming. I've been blessed with a husband who is the wind beneath my wings. He's made every possible sacrifice to encourage my music - whether just enjoying playing or writing. Were it not for his support, there is no way I could take it to the level where I can share it. The music on this site is music from my heart over the past 38+ years. It has been my solace through hard times and my joy through the good times. Much of it was "unsolicited" by me; it just came. Some of it has come through assignments or good people trusting me with their lyrics. All of it has been a miracle in my own eyes, as it was not something for which I was trained. My fingers somehow knew how to produce what was rattling through my head and by brute force it has found its way to paper. I hope you will enjoy it and let me know how you are using it. If you want to know the miracle that triggered my ability to write music, please visit my website, "www.conniestauffermusic.com". There are many original pieces of music included that don't fit the genre of the shared Free LDS Sheet Music website.
Song background:

This arrangement for our Ward Choir was adapted from the piano arrangement I wrote in 2010.  The original hymn is found in our Hymnal, Hymn #165.  This hymn has always been one of my favorites and for years I enjoyed playing it without writing it down.  I found joy in committing it to paper and now sharing it with you.

Lyrics: Abide with Me; 'Tis Eventide
Lowrie M. Hofford

1. Abide with me 'tis eventide, The day is past and gone;
The shadows of the evening fall; The night is coming on.
Within my heart a welcome guest, with in my home abide.
O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, 'tis eventide.

2. Abide with me; 'tis eventide. Thy walk to day with me
has made my heart within me burn, As I communed with thee.
Thy earnest words have filled my soul and kept me near thy side.
O Savior stay this night with me; Behold, 'tis eventide.

3.Abide with me; 'tis eventide. And lone will be the night
If I cannot commune with thee, Nor find in thee my light.
The darkness of the world, I fear. Would in my home abide.
O, dear Savior, stay this night with me; Behold 'tis eventide.
O Savior stay this night with me. Behold 'tis eventide.
