This is an SATB choir + violin & piano arrangement of a lesser known Easter hymn in the LDS hymnal. I like it a lot because it is in a minor key, but changes to major at the end. I think that depicts the resurrection in a meaningful way.
In my arrangement, rather than waiting till the very end to change to major, I modulated after the second verse since I thought it matched the lyrics pretty well. This is one of my cousin David’s favorite hymns, so I dedicated it to him. Use the contact me page to request the solo violin part be changed to a different instrument.

March 2015 Update:
After visiting my brother-in-law and his wife in Houston this past week, I had the wonderful opportunity to sing in their ward choir, led by a very accomplished Sister LeBlanc. At her request, I updated the arrangement by including a French horn part in addition to the violin and piano.
