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:

I I had this tune in mind and thanks to Julie Keyser, she put my tune to some beautiful lyrics. The words speak of not being afraid in face of trial. It would be appropriate for a solo, a Primary or a Young Men/Young Women to sing. I hope you enjoy it. And Julie - thank YOU!

Lyrics: 1. Jesus slept on a boat that was trying to stay afloat,
while the fearful waves were crashing on the sea.
All the men cried in fear Master please save us in here,
so he calmed the waves and told the winds to cease.

Standing strong in the storm as they trusted in the Lord.
Having faith that He'd guide them to shore and safely home.
Though at times they were scared they knew the Lord truly cares
and would guide them as they stand strong in the storm.

2. Joesph knelt down to pray in a sacred grove that day,
while thick darkness all around him caused despair.
But the Lord heard his cry coming down in beams of light,
the Father and the Son to him appeared.

Standing strong in the storm Joseph trusted in the Lord
Having faith he'd be guided to truth and safely home.
Though at times he was scared he knew the Lord truly cares
and would guide him as he stands strong strong in the storm.

3. When I'm lost or afraid I know I can kneel and pray,
and the Lord will guide me where I need to go.
Though the wind and the rain pour down hard upon my face,
I know the Lord will not leave me alone.

Standing strong in the storm I put my trust in the Lord.
Having faith that he'll guide me along and safely home.
Though at times I get scared I know the Lord truly cares
and will guide me as I stand strong in the storm.
