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 was reading talks one morning, and in particular the talk by Sister Neill F. Marriott. While I was reading that talk, this tune popped into my head. I knew that it had to be a Children's song about the Sabbath, so I consulted with my collaborator with the idea and she took it from there. I am grateful to have so many wonderful collaborators to help in getting this music out. If you like it, please leave feedback and if you use it, I'd love to hear about it.

Lyrics: 1. The Sabbath Day is my favorite day, and so I want to prepare.
When I'm on time and I look my best, I show the Lord that I care.
2. The Sabbath Day is my favorite day, I start by saying a prayer.
When I am reverent and worshipful, my Heavenly Father is there.
3. The Sabbath day is my favorite day, my thoughts are only the best.
No chores, no playing with friends, a sacred day when we rest.
