The timing of the composition of this piece is interesting. I actually arranged the first verse to it eight years ago. Because it was in the early days of my compositions I was still learning a lot. I like that I started it in the key of C because of the simpleness. I don’t think I would have done that today. Yet, it works because of the beautifully haunting sounds.
At the same time, I think it was good I finished it this year because of my experience. I was able to polish up the first verse and create a nice full sound for the second verse. Everything happens for a reason right? 🙂 I just feel grateful it happened that way.
I have always loved the Mormon Tabernacle Choir version of this song and I really wanted a piano arrangement. At the time I started arranging it, I couldn’t find one. Now there are a few but I’m grateful I was able to get my own spin on it. I hope this is an enjoyable arrangement for you piano players!

Thank you for this beautiful arrangement! I’ve been looking for one to play because I also love the choir version. I love your site and will visit often. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent and thank you for writing this one in the key of C. 🙂
Thank you so much for making this beautiful music available to play! The performance is lovely!
Thanks! I’m glad you enjoy this one!
Lovely arrangement. It is beautiful as listening to Bryn Terfel sing it with the choir
That is so kind! Thank you.
I dont know the lyrics
This is just a piano arrangement (not meant for singing). If you look up the Choir at Tabernacle Square’s version, they sing it beautifully 🙂
Thank you ❤️
You really captured the feeling of the song with out making it complicated.
Thanks! That is exactly what I was going for 🙂
