Oh, What Songs of the Heart

video
I couldn't stop playing and singing this hymn when I found it last summer. The week that I began composing an arrangement, our Relief Society chorister highlighted it as a practice hymn and read the story behind it's beginnings. I thought that was an interesting 'coincidence'.
(The words are by Joseph L. Townsend and the music by Wm. Clayson.)
