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:

I revised this to a suggested way of singing this hymn foir a choir. This is the way it was done today in my Sacrament Meeting.

Lyrics: Holy temples, sacred buildings, cov'nants made and fam'lies bind.
Place of worship, place of learning, of our Heavnly Father, kind.
Come back to His holy temples; come back often, don't delay!
Learn of His love to all mankind, list to what the spirit says.
Baptized for those who can't do them, hoping they embrace the plan.
Giving choices to accept it; gospel of the Son of man.
Washed, anointed; royal lineage, blessings of eternal worth.
Sacred garments placed upon us, reminders for all on earth.
Endowment with promised blessings are all ours, this promise sure.
Sealing powers, exaltation, if we all can but endure.
Ordinances for the living, ordinances for the dead.
This important work will not end, 'till the Fathers' word is said.
We are Saviors on Mount Zion when our fam'lies work is done.
Binding all as fam'ly units, linking all, forgetting none.
Holy temples, sacred buildings, cov'nants made and fam'lies bind.
Place of worship, place of learning, in these temples we will find.
