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:

Here is a piece that is perfect for Eastertime. The words were written by Michael Young. A very sweet contemplative hymn which would also work for a theme of the Atonement.

Lyrics: He walked alone so we must not, along the road with peril fraught.
Descending to the darkest vale, the curse of mortals to assail.

A lonely road all choked with thorns, that thick upon His brow adorn.
Weighed down by burdens stark and grave, great drops of blood as sweat He gave.

There was no one to walk beside as He faced that grim eventide.
But glory to our God ascribe, He bore more than we can describe.

Tell of His grace, lest we forget, the vastness of forgiven debt
that ransoms ev'ry mortal child, and brings them home, cleansed, reconciled.
