More about Loren Erickson:
My first introduction to music was playing the trumpet in an elementary school band. How many of those do you see anymore? In Junior High I took up singing and performed in various choirs and musicals through high school and college. When I was called as ward music chairman and took on the additional responsibilities of ward choir director, I wanted to see of I could arrange music for the choir. Many of those early attempts were...well...awful. But I had a very forgiving Bishop and patient accompanists and choir and I continued to learn. I am now stake music chairman and have inflicted slightly less atrocious arrangements on otherwise unsuspecting congregations. I also currently sing with Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, a multi-denominational choral movement spanning five western states in the USA. My experience in MCO has had a profound influence on how I look at music, what it means, and why it is important to understand meaning behind notes and lyrics when performing it. I hope that what I leave here is not as awful as I have suggested that it might be with this introduction, but either way, know that there is a little piece of my soul in everything you will find from me here. Please provide feedback on my work. That is the only way I will learn.
Song background:

This is a medley of Israel, Israel, God is Calling, and Redeemer of Israel.  The combined messages of these hymns recently caught my attention.  As with many hymns the combination of these two depicts a progression through life that includes the initial invitation to the Gospel, the first blush of testimony, falling into sin and being admonished to repent, and eventually recjoicing within the walls of Zion.  The third verse is very...minor.  So have a good listen before introducing this to your ward or stake choir.  Third verse notwithstanding, the choral parts follow mostly what is in the hymnbook for with the addition of double parts in key places.  

Full disclaimer: in order to get the narrative that I wanted I had to take several liberties with the lyrics.  

As always, if you find this, and like it, and (hopefully) use it, I would love to receive your feedback on it.  Enjoy.
