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.
I welcome another collaborator, Dixie Lea Henrie to the ldshappymusic "family". I had this tune for over two years and turned it over to her for inspiration. What it became is a great missionary hymn that would sound great sung by missionaries. :) I hope you enjoy it and, as always I welcome feedback.

Lyrics: 1. The brightness of the gospel plan will ever light the way,
To seeking hearts, and wand'ring souls who may have gone astray.
The call is ours in latter days, to leave no soul behind,
But be a beacon in the dark that searching hearts may find.
2. Be mindful of the low in heart, endeavoring to cope,
Give comfort, help and charity, encouragement and hope.
And love thy neighbor as thyself for truly, who is he?
A precious child of royal birth, a brother unto thee.
3. We'll share the friendship, share the joy, love's ensign taking hold,
For every nation, kindred tongue, we'll bring into the fold.
We'll share the plan of happiness, God's children one and all.
The field is ripe, the harvest nigh, let each one heed the call.
4. May we be servants unto thee, be faithful, honest, true,
That others who may see our light, accept the gospel too.
Oh Father may we be thy hands, our meager light be Thine,
And spread thy word o'er all the earth, thy gospel light to shine.
