Search, Ponder and Pray arrangement for Solo Voice with Violin and Piano

A few months ago when I was thinking of the songs I wanted my Primary to sing for the Presentation this year, I had 12 songs that I definitely wanted them to do that tied in with the monthly themes.  However, I also wanted to do Search, Ponder and Pray – because to me, that sums up the yearly theme nicely.

 

To cut a long story short, and with my beautiful Primary President giving me complete freedom to whatever I feel is best for our Primary, I thought a solo would be perfect for this song.

 

I heard one version on You Tube that I loved, but there wasn’t any sheet music (I only listened to it once, that’s all I had time to do).  So with that version as my inspiration, I wrote my own arrangement.

Here it is:

We performed it this week at Leadership training, and we received many positive comments and requests for the music.

 

On a side note, I added in the words to the Primary theme for this year’s Presentation “I know the scriptures are true” at the very end.  If you aren’t comfortable with changing words to songs, just repeat the words “I’ll know the scriptures are true” because that simply repeats the phrase and doesn’t add in anything new.
