The story of my writing this hymn based on President Nelson’s conference address, “Hear Him” (words by David B. Larsen), will be published alongside this hymn in a beautiful new book by the same title coming from Covenant Communications in October. My first attempt failed and was discarded. My second attempt, after pleading prayer, provided me with a significant experience in “hearing Him” which I will never forget. The first two lines (in a minor key) reflect the depth of the prophet’s plea for us to hear Him! The last two lines (in a major key) tell of the blessings that will follow as we truly hear Him!
