More about Rick Graham:
I am a self-taught pianist that originally hails from Pennsylvania. I have a love of music that spans several decades. My Grandmother instilled in me the gift of listening to the sound of music no matter where it was. I was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but sang as a young boy soprano in a boys choir for another church. Those years of learning music and techniques would forever stay with me as well as playing the recorder. I am married and am a grandfather and find great joy in my posterity. I moved to the Salt Lake area a couple years ago for employment and love it here (although I do miss my children and grandchildren terribly). I am humbled to be a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir as a music missionary. I have been truly blessed and acknowledge all the gifts and blessings that I enjoy to Him, my Savior.
Song background:

This is an Easter Hymn that has some of the lyrics of the original and semi-famous Easter hymn. I wanted to make it a bit more relevant to LDS so I had my good friend, Michael Young come up with some alternate lyrics. And, like a jigsaw puzzle, we pieced it together into a cohesive and beautiful message of joy and hope. I hope you enjoy it.

Lyrics: Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne.
Hark! how the heaven'ly anthem drowns all music but its own.
Awake my soul and sing of Him who died for me,
and hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity.

Crown Him the Son of God, before the worlds began,
all ye washed clean by His dear blood, crown Him the Son of Man;
who ev'ry grief hath known that wrings the human breast,
and take and bears them for His own, that all in Him may rest.

Crown Him the Lord of love, behold His hands and side.
He bore the weight of ev'ry sin and now is glorified.
Crown Him the Lord of life, who triumphed o'er the grave
and rose the third day from the tomb, all mankind He can save.

Crown Him with boundless joy when He again descends.
He shall appear in crimson robes and darkness meets its end.
A thousand years of peace His great work we'll complete,
all serving with our King of Kings, we'll worship at His feet.
