More about Sherrie Boren:
I grew up singing around the piano and guitar with my family. I learned chord progressions from my dad and harmony from my mom. I have enjoyed making music ever since, whether on the piano or the violin, in a choir or an orchestra. As I worked toward a degree in piano performance at BYU, I discovered a love for composing and improvising. It wasn't until several years later, when I had three small children, that I decided to try writing a song for church. I enjoyed it so much that I kept right on doing it.
Song background:

This beautiful and tender choral arrangement was adapted from a piano solo that I arranged in December of 2020. It reflects a deep yearning for peace and comfort at the end of a difficult year for many of us.
I love the imagery and progression of ideas through the three verses of this carol. The music leads us from a peaceful manger scene in verse one, to a prayerful plea for the Savior to come down and watch over our own cradle. 
I deliberated between two possible versions of text for the third verse. Should I use "fit us for heaven" or "lead us to heaven?" I ultimately decided to include both.
