Ralph Waldo Emerson taught: "It is the office of a true teacher to show that God is not was, that he speaketh, not spake." It is my testimony and firm belief that we have these true teachers on the earth today, namely prophets and apostles. The words of this hymn is a prayer of gratitude to God for all that He has given us in these latter-days, including prophets who teach, lead, and guide us; the music arrangement is my representation of the gratitude, joy, and excitement, as well as the reverence that I feel every time I think that we have a prophet of God on the earth!
As Moses and Abraham and Peter did before, Thomas Monson fills the holy role as Prophet of God, even His spokesman on the earth. Of course, each of us are to have an intimate and personal relationship with Diety, but with a Prophet who holds the priesthood authority of God- His power and permission- and who has a special endowment of spiritual ability, it is good to know that we truly are led and guided today.
