How Beautiful Thy Temples
An Angel From On High: This is a piano player’s arrangement. Every time I attend my local temple (San Diego) and look into the sky at the angel Moroni, I get a feeling of majestic reverence for “(the) angel flying through the midst of Heaven, having the everlasting gospel…”
I Love To See The Temple: This Janice Kapp Perry song is the one that enters my mind every time I drive to a temple to do ordinance work or even when I pass by.
How Beautiful Thy Temples, Lord: One of the most moving hymns I know, verses 1 and 3 sum up so eloquently thepurpose of the temple. I wish this hymn was better known. My hope is that this CD will play a small part in making it more popular among the saints.
Families Can Be Together Forever: Besides the sheer physical beauty of the temples, there is one grand reason that makes them beautiful beyond price or worldly value…the eternal nature and salvation of the family.
The Lord My Pasture Will Prepare/Sheep May Safely Graze: The titles alone of these two beautiful hymns seemedto complement each other perfectly. Arranged from Bach’s 1713 “Hunting Cantata”
There Is A Green Hill Far Away: My mother told me that she once asked me as a small boy what my favorite hymn was, and this was my answer.
Be Still My Soul: This was an arrangement I did specifically for my daughter who needed hope in a moment of trials. This song is a favorite of many for good reason. The message applies to all.
He Is Not Here: Crawford Gates classic Easter hymn, part of the “Choirbook” publication of the church.
Master The Tempest Is Raging: “Peace, be still” is something I can imagine Christ saying to each of us in our moments of crisis.
The King of Love My Shepherd Is: Harry Rowe Shelley’s classic 1915 version.
I Come To The Garden Alone: Traditional Baptist hymn. I included this as a gift of appreciation to the wonderful people of Alabama, where I lived for 9 years.
Abide With Me, ‘Tis Eventide: One verse “benediction“ to the CD
