A Favorite Hymn

Posted by Jenna, Under Religious

Brightly Beams Our Father’s Mercy has long been a favorite hymn of mine, but I couldn’t find an arrangement that really does it justice. It’s not as powerful to me when a large group sings it. I was listening to the newest podcast at Mormon Transition and heard what I’ve been looking for all this time!

You can listen to a live amateur recording on YouTube.

But I think the version you can buy on iTunes is much better (the song is called Let the Lower Lights Be Burning). I just bought the whole album, and look forward to working it into my Sunday listening rotation.

After reading the suggestions found in the comments on my post on LDS Hymns, I started listening to It Is Well With My Soul and Palmetto. Thank you for introducing me to these beautiful pieces of music, they bring me a lot of peace.

  2. I love Moleni Brothers rendition of Brightly Beams our Fathers Mercy. Lara was my husbands missionary comp so maybe that’s why we love it so.

    Now I want both! I like the one by Sabre Rattlers because it’s a duet, but it’s so lovely with all of the harmonies in a group.
