Does the Journey Seem Long?

Although the original version of this hymn is written in a major key, I decided to do the first part of my arrangement in a minor key to better portray the thorny, rugged paths and heavy burdens of life that are described so well in the lyrics, written by Joseph Fielding Smith. Then the music changes to a major key to better capture the hope and joy of being welcomed into eternal life with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.  This arrangement received the Award of Merit in the 2014 Church Music Submission.
