Description

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow...." The words are an invitation to contemplate the works of nature and to see in them the expression of the Creator's love and concern for each of his creations. The power that clothes the lilies with their beauty can also provide solace and comfort in the challenges of living every day.

This new collection of music by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square embodies the spirit of the Savior's teachings of faith, love, and hope for the future. The music represents a broad range of musical feeling—from the joyful "Rejoice, the Lord is King!" and "Morning Has Broken" to the contemplative "O Holy Jesus" and "Pilgrims' Hymn" to the fervent affirmations in "I Believe in Christ" and "This Is the Christ." The texts contain messages of peace, comfort, and reassurance, which can soothe the soul and lift the heart.
