Comments for this piece:
From Michael Gollaher: What a wonderful tune!
5.0 stars.

From Hannah: Anima, when I try to access this song, it just shows the sheet music for hymn 85, How Firm A Foundation. I also tried clicking the link to your website but the link doesn't work. Is there another way to access your music? Thanks!

More about Anima Gladeous:
I am new to the music industry, but I love it and enjoy music as a whole. I love piano, singing, conducting, and the like. Being new, however, does not change the fact that I want to share my talent with the rest of the world so they may glorify our Father which is in heaven (Matt. 5:16).
Song background:

This song is a medley of How Firm a Foundation and the Spirit of God. I was excited when I discovered my musical talents during my late teenage years, so much that I took it to new heights. During my mission, I started singing familiar songs, but with different tunes. I started singing "Joseph Smith's First Prayer" in the tune of "Come thou Fount of Every Blessing." That was one of my favorites. Of course, that piece already exists. However, I started experimenting with other combinations of hymns and I found this particular piece to be the most beautiful pieces I have ever had the opportunity to sing. I felt so inspired by the medley that I requested that the Elders (my companion, my DL, and I) and Sisters of that ward sing that piece during sacrament meeting. Since nobody had heard this specific version of the song before, everyone was surprised when they heard the first verse. It was truly remarkable. I could really feel the spirit and it was evident that several others could too. I hope all can enjoy its message.

Lyrics: 1. The Spirit of God like a fire is Burning!
The Latter-day Glory begins to come forth!
The visions and blessings of old are returning
And angels are coming, and angels are coming
And angels are coming to visit the earth.

2. How firm a foundation ye saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in his excellent word?
What more can he say than to you he hath said
who unto the Savior, who unto the Savior,
who unto the Savior for refuge have fled?

3. The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
I will not, I cannot desert to his foes
That soul, though all hell, should endeavor to shake
I'll never, no never, I'll never no never
I'll never, no never no never forsake!

4. How Blessed the Day when the lamb and the lion
Shall lie down together without any ire
And Ephraim be crowned with his blessing in Zion
As Jesus descends with, as Jesus descends with
As Jesus descends with his chariot of Fire!

5. We'll Sing and we'll shout with the armies of heaven!
Hosanna, Hosanna to God and the Lamb!
Let glory to them in the highest be given
Hence forth and forever, hence forth and forever
hence forth and forever, amen and amen.

Ending (slower)
The Spirit of God!
How Firm a foundation!
Hence forth and forever, amen and amen!
