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.
I spent 3 glorious weeks in Europe on tour with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The majority of those weeks were spent in Germany. As I was walking the streets, visiting the Marienplatz, visiting castles and other sites and singing in concert halls and arenas, this tune came to mind. So, I enlisted the help from my MoTab brother, Michael Young - who is also fluent in German to come up with suitable lyrics. It is meant to be sung in German, but the translation below tells you what it basically says. I hope you enjoy!

Lyrics: 1. The Lord will come, this I know
And now I have the holy responsibility
To be ready when he appears
When we’ll finally be unified with him.
I am doing what I can I am a part of his great plan
The Lord will come to see me Now I can learn more of Him.
2. The Lord will come and I say
That I will give my heart to Him
He comes to save the world
And my joy will be wonderful.
3. The Lord will come and until then
I pull his work on with great power
I want to give my best to him
Because he brings me eternal life.
