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:

As I have been mentally and spiritually preparing for General Conference, I have been reading some previous Conference talks. One that I read impressed me so much that I know I had to do a hymn composition. Once again, I turned to my wonderful lyricist, Michael Young, and gave him my vision. Thanks again, Michael.

Lyrics: 1. The vessel is not greater than the oil that lies within it.
The fire is so much brighter than the spark that does begin it.
The sunlight does not come from him who draws back the dark curtain,
nor does the moon shine on its own but shows the sun for certain.

God's infinite, eternal power does sustain us every hour.

2. God's servants fill their lamps anew through His eternal graces.
The Spirit's fire is kindled anew where the smile of His face is.
The sunlight they allow to shine to all those now distressing.
The greater light reflecting to all those who seek God's blessing.

God's infinite, eternal power does sustain us every hour.

3. Then worthy vessels we must be and servants pure and ready.
And humble, prayerful we must be on rolling waves or steady.
So when God calls we too may rise, accept His heavenly power
for when the bridegroom comes again, we know not when the hour.

God's infinite, eternal power does sustain us every hour.
