I woke up in the middle of the night to a dream in which I heard a band playing a song I thought to be very beautiful in my dream. I knew I needed to get up and write it down, so I did. As soon as I had written out the melody, I knew it needed to be called "The Prophet Joseph Smith" and I wrote out the words to the first two verses. I then wrote out some of the acompaniment pattern, and went back to bed. The next morning I finished writing the music.
The third verse didn't come till almost two years later and actually required some effort on my part. But I feel like this song was inspired, if only for me to start back into writing music, which I hadn't done for a long time.
