A favorite of the BYU Young Ambassadors, this arrangement is one of composer Garrett Breeze’s best known works. It was commissioned by director Randy Boothe for the fireside “I Believe in Christ” which toured the United States, the Caribbean, Africa, and Hong Kong. It was then recorded by Dr. Ronald Staehli as part of the BYU Singers Alumni Hymn Project and released as a free digital download (available at Most recently, it received honorable mention in the 2013 Sounds of Zion Music Composition Contest among works by other well-known LDS composers. The texture of the piece changes dramatically from verse to verse, reflecting the words being sung. It’s most unique feature (the setting in 5/4 time) is also it’s most challenging. However, this quickly becomes natural and lends a new vibrancy to the familiar tune. *Note* The third verse is written for a 4-part split in the men. In smaller groups, this may be sung by a quartet, which will greatly reduce the amount of time needed to learn the piece.
