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:

My Grandmother was a gifted poet whose works appeared in some major magazines and newspapers. Her legacy is a three volume book of her poems. The words are her's and I put them music. This would be suitable for the Primary to sing at Christmastime. I hope you enjoy it.

Lyrics: I'm going to Bethlehem tonight, it isn't very far.
I passed some shepherds in a field who said they saw a star.
Far brighter than the noonday sun and while they watched spellbound,
an angel came from heav'n above, and glory shone around.

The angel told them of a child born in a lowly shed.
With cattle lowing all about, and straw to lay his head.
They said that angels sang with joy for this child they adored
because he came to save the world, he is our Christ, the Lord.

I'm on my way to Bethlehem, my heart is glad and light.
With eagerness my footsteps go, I'm hast'ning through the night.
I'll soon be at the manger there, the wondrous sight to see.
I want someone to share this joy, so won't you come with me?
