More about Connie Stauffer:
I was raised in Thatcher, Utah, a small town west of Tremonton on the north end of the state. Home is where I enjoy being the most. If I leave, it is usually for something very important. To relax or to waste a few minutes, I gravitate to my piano. My favorite thing to do is to turn out the lights when I'm alone and play to my heart's content. This is one way I find ideas for music. Another place where I've gotten more than a few ideas is when I've been exercising, whether it's walking the trails of Alpine, or riding my road bike. I think about my life and the issues of the day while walking, and those moments frequently end with music rattling through my head. I have a husband, five children and twelve grandchildren - all of whom are the light of my life. I'd rather be with any one of them than just about anything. However, I do enjoy my solitude, which is probably why the hobby of writing music has been so appealing to me. My mother was my music teacher until she said I had outgrown her. I then took from a wonderful lady who helped shape me. Oh how I would love to have a sit-down visit with her. She probably knows me better than anyone, as she was there as I was in the process of becoming. I've been blessed with a husband who is the wind beneath my wings. He's made every possible sacrifice to encourage my music - whether just enjoying playing or writing. Were it not for his support, there is no way I could take it to the level where I can share it. The music on this site is music from my heart over the past 38+ years. It has been my solace through hard times and my joy through the good times. Much of it was "unsolicited" by me; it just came. Some of it has come through assignments or good people trusting me with their lyrics. All of it has been a miracle in my own eyes, as it was not something for which I was trained. My fingers somehow knew how to produce what was rattling through my head and by brute force it has found its way to paper. I hope you will enjoy it and let me know how you are using it. My website has much of what is here plus a lot of songs that do not fall into the "Sacred Music" genre. Feel free to visit it. I love suggestions and comments!
Song background:

This arrangement for our Ward Choir was adapted from the piano arrangement I wrote in 2010.  The original hymn is found in our Hymnal, Hymn #165.  This hymn has always been one of my favorites and for years I enjoyed playing it without writing it down.  I found joy in committing it to paper and now sharing it with you.

Lyrics: Abide with Me; 'Tis Eventide
Lowrie M. Hofford

1. Abide with me 'tis eventide, The day is past and gone;
The shadows of the evening fall; The night is coming on.
Within my heart a welcome guest, with in my home abide.
O Savior, stay this night with me; Behold, 'tis eventide.

2. Abide with me; 'tis eventide. Thy walk to day with me
has made my heart within me burn, As I communed with thee.
Thy earnest words have filled my soul and kept me near thy side.
O Savior stay this night with me; Behold, 'tis eventide.

3.Abide with me; 'tis eventide. And lone will be the night
If I cannot commune with thee, Nor find in thee my light.
The darkness of the world, I fear. Would in my home abide.
O, dear Savior, stay this night with me; Behold 'tis eventide.
O Savior stay this night with me. Behold 'tis eventide.
