More about Jarom Luker:
I have been a musician all of my life. Singing, piano, and trombone have all been very important to me. I was also born hard-of-hearing and that situation continues to worsen. I was recently called as a ward choir director (a position I thought I would never be able to hold because of my hearing), and due to the unusual makeup of our ward choir, traditional arrangements have not worked well for us. I decided to try my hand at arranging, using the hymnal as a source. I do not play around too much with voicing (transposing and moving the tenor part to the altos is about as bold as I get), but I like to give the pianist more to do than simply double the vocals playing block chords.
Song background:

This arrangement came about because the women in my ward choir really shine, but the men are underrepresented.  There are simply not enough to have a tenor and a bass section.  I have yet to find accessible arrangements for my small choir, so I started writing my own.  This is one of my all-time favorite hymn texts.  I would probably not be nearly as familiar but for Rob Gardner's musical fireside, "Saints and Pioneers," which I was privileged to take part in presenting in an Institute choir about ten years ago.  Though I love that version, it is a solo, so I arranged the hymnal harmony with a rolling piano.  The pace is quick, because the tone is that life goes on despite all hardship.
