More about Rick Graham:
I am a self-taught pianist that originally hails from Pennsylvania. I have a love of music that spans several decades. My Grandmother instilled in me the gift of listening to the sound of music no matter where it was. I was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but sang as a young boy soprano in a boys choir for another church. Those years of learning music and techniques would forever stay with me as well as playing the recorder. I am married and am a grandfather and find great joy in my posterity. I moved to the Salt Lake area a couple years ago for employment and love it here (although I do miss my children and grandchildren terribly). I am humbled to be a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir as a music missionary. I have been truly blessed and acknowledge all the gifts and blessings that I enjoy to Him, my Savior.
Song background:

This is a simple Sacrament Hymn that I came up with the words one insomniac evening. The tune followed shortly. It is my hope that it expresses the Sacrament with dignity. I uploaded another PDF file with a key change since I had some feedback about the key a E major :)

Lyrics: Our Savior, in Gethsemane <br/>Cried, "Father, take this cup from me, <br/>But if Thou wilt, I'll drink it all"; <br/>Atoning for our sins, and fall. <br/> <br/>Our Savior, whose hands raised the dead, <br/>Were pierced with nails, His blood they shed. <br/>Symbolic of His body torn; <br/>We eat the bread, our souls reborn. <br/> <br/>Our Savior, bleeding on the tree <br/>From head and feet, and side flowed free. <br/>As symbols of His blood, so dear <br/>We now partake the water, clear. <br/> <br/>Our Savior suffered all of these <br/>So that God's law He did appease <br/>We come to Him, our hearts are rent, <br/>And we partake His sacrament. <br/>
