I Believe – New recording of a song I wrote while on my mission

Most people who know us know that Kacee and I met in 2008 at Utah State University studying vocal performance. Maybe fewer people know that we dated in 2009 and I, Shane, left to serve an LDS mission from 2010 – 2012. We corresponded while I was gone and we decided to get married in March of 2013.

While I was on my mission, Kacee sent me these words in a letter. I had never heard the music that accompanied the text, so I decided that I would write some music of my own to this text. I had very limited access to a piano so I actually wrote it without one. When I had composed the piece I sent it back to Kacee, and I also had the opportunity to perform it a couple of times on my mission – once with Sister Ryan. In this recording linked to this blogpost, I am playing the piano and my wife, Kacee, is singing:

I believe for every drop of rain that falls
A flower grows,
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows.
I believe for everyone who goes astray
Someone will come to show the way.
I believe, I believe,
I believe.
I believe above the storm
The smallest prayer, will still be heard.
I believe that someone in that great somewhere
Hears every word
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry,
Or touch a leaf
Or see the sky,
Then I know why I believe.

Lyrics by: Al Stillman, Ervin Drake, Irvin Graham, Shirl Jimmy
