More about Sara Lyn Baril:
Sara Lyn (Bissett) Baril was raised in southern Alberta, Canada and started composing music at a very young age. At 16, she began to score some of her compositions which were subsequently performed by talented friends at various functions. Her music has been frequently used over the last 15 years in many church programs (firesides), including sacrament meetings, and occasionally the stage. She has composed music for a Christmas cantata, entitled "Glorious Is His Name", performed in 1999 in Raymond, Alberta and in 2004 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and music for and LDS Stake play entitled "Finding My Way" in 2003, also in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In the fall of 2006, when her black binder of printed music began to burst at the seams and after much encouragement from people in her stake, she began publishing her songs in local bookstores. The ball began to roll very quickly after she sent a few songs down to well-known LDS music producer, Greg Hansen, and by spring 2007, her debut album, "Thy Healing Hands - Songs of Comfort and Peace" was released. In 2015, Sara chose to release a second album, Come To Know Him, which includes an additional 13 songs about Jesus Christ and His gospel. This collection includes many songs written from her young adult years, as well as several new compositions. Both albums include professional LDS vocals from talent such as Daniel Beck, David Osmond, April Meservy, Julie Rose, Dallyn Vail Bayles, Keith McKay Evans, Sara Bethany Ham, and others. Sara enjoys writing inspirational songs and choir numbers, although she has also composed children's music and occasionally a country or love song. She has also written various songs in support of the annual auxiliary themes within the LDS Church. This music has been sung and loved by the Young Women, Primary and Relief Society groups in areas she has lived and served. Sara has found her musical styles to expand over the years and enjoys writing about many topics, but writing songs about the Savior has always been her most fulfilling endeavour. She and her husband, Mark, have five children and reside in southern Alberta. When she's not writing music, she's busy catching up on house work and attending her children's ball games. She currently serves as the Young Women's president in her ward. More sheet music, mp3 downloads, CDs and songbooks at www.saralynbaril.com
"I Will Serve Him" was initially written in 2003 for the youth while I was living in Saskatoon, SK. It has been sung and loved at different sacrament meetings, Relief Society functions, and youth firesides. In December 2013, it was produced and recorded professionally and released as a free download. The project was prompted by a family who had lost a missionary while serving in the field, and was dedicated to missionaries all over the world, specifically, those who have passed away while serving. This song is a gift to their families. To read the full story on this project, please visit: http://toliftandinspire.blogspot.ca/2013/12/i-will-serve-him-story-behind.html

Lyrics: Joshua said, “Choose ye this day whom ye will serve.
I will let go of all my pride and promise to serve God
That perhaps I may be an instrument in His mighty hands
And find joy in bringing hope and peace to all I can.
I will serve Him.
I will testify of Jesus Christ.
I will give my whole heart
In building His kingdom, sharing His love.
I will serve Him.
I’ll heed the call trusting in God and His wisdom
I’ll teach His word laboring in the vineyards of the Lord
For my heart is full with the love of God; In faith I’ll teach His way.
I will give all that I am. My hands are His today.
I’ll not glory in myself, but glory in the Lord
Rejoicing in the light of Christ unto life.
I will serve my God.
