When I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1984, Spencer W. Kimball was our Prophet. By this time, President Kimball was basically incapacitated. So, to get to know him, I read his biography: SPENCER W. KIMBALL - THE EARLY AND APOSTOLIC YEARS - Twelfth President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints – 1980, by Edward L. & Kimball, Andrew E. Jr. Kimball.
As Easter approaches, I hope your family will enjoy this song that I’ve written. Please notice that the first verse is in past tense; the second is in the present. The Atonement of Jesus Christ had to take place at some point in time. And it did. He completed each aspect of it. The miraculous effects of that event, though, are everlasting. It is still because of Jesus that every small or grand tragedy may turn to final victory and joy. The ending note of the harmony shifts with a Picardy third to a happy concluding chord as well.
