I Beheld Round the Throne original hymn
(2004) Joseph Smith himself coined the verses after receiving Doctrine & Covenants 76. I first heard the poetry during April 2004 general conference and thought it deserved an appropriate setting. After getting the Ensign I worked on the music over three days, primarily the "different" second and fourth phrases. Hey, I've collaborated with the Prophet! 2009: What a polarizing hymn this has become! Some think it sounds like the hinges song in the primary book, yet I think it's some of my best writing. BTW, I just found out there are actually SEVEN verses that Joesph Smith originally penned!
