“Lasting Joy,” 1927

By: Ardis E. Parshall - May 08, 2013

The Relief Society has published several songbooks at various points in history. The Relief Society-centric songs published in the 1927 songbook include this piece with words by Susa Young Gates and music by her son, Brigham Cecil Gates. I can’t speak to its musical merits (the poetic merits, meh), but I do like the idea of having more than one piece available that addresses the specific mission of members of the Relief Society.

  1. Sunshine after rain. We have some of that right now. I should send the kids out to look for a rainbow.

  2. The music isn’t particularly memorable. But I agree, it’s nice to see another Relief Society-themed hymn.

  3. Like most early 20th century hymnals, this copyist assumes a fairly high level of musical literacy. (e.g. a repeat with first and second endings in the chorus.)
