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 originally had the tune and most of the first verse. Since I am not a lyricist, I sent the song out on my social media networs for their ideas and input. I had a wide variety of suggestions; for correcitng tune to many different lyrics. yet, none of the lyrics expressed what I really wanted this song to portray; that we all can hear, feel, and know the Spirit. These are divine truths, yet are simple enough for a child to understand.
So, after some prayerful moments, I felt inspired to go this way with the song. I did make some suggested aranging ideas, and some fixes for the lyrics I did have. Thanks to everyone who helped out on this. I hope you will enjoy and feel the Spirit. If you decide to have your Primary children dothis one, please make a recording of it so I can hear it. Thanks! :)
Lyrics: 1. I hear the Spirit when I say my prayers.
He whispers truth from my Father, who cares.
I am so glad that I feel Him, He's near.
He tell me that Father loves me, so dear.
2. I feel the Spirit when I go to church
lessons from teachers, the scriptures I search.
I am so glad that they teach me with love.
Teaching me truths from my Father, above.
3. I know the Spirit will help me each day
when I choose right, and my Father, obey.
I am so glad that He'll tell me whats right.
Thanks to my Father fro sending His light.
