More about David Welker:
I am a hobby classical guitarist and my secondary calling is ward choir director. While I have no formal choir training outside of ward and stake choir, I did play the trombone in the BYU Marching Band, and know where the down beat is. I began playing the trombone at the age of 10 upon quitting guitar lessons because my mother said I had to play something. I started playing the guitar when I was 8 when I quit piano lessons after only one lesson after being teased by older siblings. Sadly I was not mature enough to fully appreciate classical guitar at the time, but I picked it back up after our first child was born when my wife told me my other guitars were too noisy. So I bought a Yamaha Classical guitar at the main store in Shibuya and tried to retrain myself. Recently a young man I taught on my mission sent me a hymn he had arranged for classical guitar. I played it for him and he challenged me to send him something back...so I am now slowly transcribing some of my favorite hymns...
Song background:

The melodic nature of this hymn lends itself well to classical guitar...always looking for the balance of not enough and too much...the first two verses are in brighter keys of D then E, the thrid just a variation of the 2nd and the 4th felt right and somehow more grandiose in A.  A well known source says about A:   "This key includes declarations of innocent love, satisfaction with one's state of affairs; hope of seeing one's beloved again when parting; youthful cheerfulness and trust in God."  Wow , I think they got that right!
