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.
This is a simple Sacrament Hymn that I came up with the words one insomniac evening. The tune followed shortly. It is my hope that it expresses the Sacrament with dignity. I uploaded another PDF file with a key change since I had some feedback about the key a E major :)

Lyrics: Our Savior, in Gethsemane
Cried, "Father, take this cup from me,
But if Thou wilt, I'll drink it all";
Atoning for our sins, and fall.
Our Savior, whose hands raised the dead,
Were pierced with nails, His blood they shed.
Symbolic of His body torn;
We eat the bread, our souls reborn.
Our Savior, bleeding on the tree
From head and feet, and side flowed free.
As symbols of His blood, so dear
We now partake the water, clear.
Our Savior suffered all of these
So that God's law He did appease
We come to Him, our hearts are rent,
And we partake His sacrament.
