Standing on the Promises, voice and piano
I've been hiking a lot this summer, and have been greatly impressed by the glorious mountains of the Wasatch Front. They are majestic and imposing, yet beautiful and strong. There is a great feeling from climbing atop a waterfall or cliff face and feeling like you're on top of the world!
My mind goes to this scripture in the Book of Mormon:
"It is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation...a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if me build, they cannot fall." Helaman 5:12
This hymn encompasses my feelings and desire to build my life upon the Rock of Christ, my Savior. The driving beat and the syncopation showcase the excitement and joy that comes from being firmly rooted in our Savior.
