There was some really cool things said in the Sunday morning conference session. I was really impressed. I’ll blog about them, for sure.
But that crowning moment for me was listening to the choir sing “How Firm a Foundation”.
As our own ward choir director, we did it (straight from the hymn book) about a month ago. It’s long been one of my favorite hymns. I thought our choir did a great job. This song is one that carries me through my trials more than any other.
The Tab choir did the third verse a capella, and the harmonies were glorious!
"Fear not I am with thee, O be not dismayed
For I am thy god and will still give the aid
I'll strengthen thee help thee and cause thee to stand
Upheld by my righteous omnipotent hand."
Wow. What a sound, and what power. Then they sang the last verse in unison, with only the organ providing the harmonies. It just filled my soul, my eyes, and gave me chills. Especially the last verse:
“That 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 no never forsake”
