  • Me an atheist: I don't particularly enjoy religious music, except for opera.
    Also me, after this video: EXCELSIOR!! EXCELSIOR!!

  • I have just listened to this uplifting choir but and it is a big but on our news an American lady unintentionally killed a 19 year old boy ,
    It does not take much imagination to think how his parents feel.and the lady responsible has fled the country without even a sorry ,
    How do you think we view all yes all Americans now.

  • i'm not even in christianity or any religion.. I belive in science, I'd say the way humans express themselves in such way is art, there is something hidden beneath our skin and brain and being.. an energy and this gives me a tingle.. SUBARASHI!

  • Fairly certain this is the best choral arrangement on youtube to date. Will have to do more research i.e. watch every single choir piece i can find, but the way this builds, the deep complexities of the sounds, the bass. The bass. The soloist's held note over the call and response, the wonderful wonderful tenor parts.
    This song lifts us up to worship our mighty God.

  • This is like a rly rly condensed version of my testimony but I grew up a Baptist. I live in Utah, and was highly exposed to the LDS Church. One day, I was in the visitors center of the Salt Lake Temple, and as I was looking at the statue of Jesus Christ, I got this amazing feeling of peace. This feeling that I was going to be ok. I tried to leave, but my friend made me stay. I prayed. I realized that Heavenly Father was trying to help me. So I agreed to go to Seminary with one of my friends. The first hymn we sung when I was in there was Nearer My God to Thee. I just cried and cried because I realized I was nearer to God. I realized that the LDS church is the one true church and Iโ€™m just so thankful that I finally understood that.

  • Me and the boys meme has a new format.

    joking aside , this is one of the best chorale videos I've ever watched. This still give me spine chills whenever I watch this

  • I strugle with depresion but every time I listen to this song its like God lifts all my fears and everything away. Praise Him!!!

  • IS it me or does this song has a lot of s sounds (sibilance). Trying to remove via the eq etc. but even with the praise team these sound stays…

  • Mormons singing about God. Its to bad they don't believe in God. Mormonism, the biggest cult of all time.

  • It's not that hard to remember that language the choir is singing when the Holy Spirit reveals it to you. And it's a wonderful reminder of the Heavens we came from, indeed.


  • I canโ€™t believe how long this video took to make…. 4 hours, and it was all previously recorded…. so we were lip singing….. I also will add that I was in a bad mood, so I didnโ€™t get a lot of camera time, unlike other recordings (at the devotionals) where the camera couldnโ€™t get enough of me…. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿคด๐Ÿพ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ….

  • I am a Christian, I hold my trust as many of us do, in our God Almighty. I am so happy about this song…. it brings us a supporting choir for the best football team ever – CFC Chelsea Football Club

  • Waow! What a wonderful piece! Waow! What a wonderful piece! Definitively this Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter Days Saints is our Heavenly Father's Zion on this Hearth. It brings out the best from your soul. Proud to be a Member of the restored Church. "Nearer, my God to Thee"…


    We are His witness on earth. Our life is in His hands. He IS the way to everlasting life.

    Jesus sang with His disciples at the last supper! Matthew chap 26: verses 26-30. He spoke of his death and burial and resurrection in the offering of the bread and wine!

    1 Cor.11:
    23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered left you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
    24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
    25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
    26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
    27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
    28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
    29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not understood the Lord's body.

    He knew the next 24 hours would be the worst He could suffer but Jesus is mighty to save and the only Lord God and Savior. So Lets give Him all the glory.

    Isaiah chap 7: verse 14; therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Emmanuel (meaning: Hebrew: ืขึดืžึธึผื ื•ึผืึตืœ, "God with us" in human flesh as a man as well but w / o sin)

    Isaiah chap 9: verse 6ย ย For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

    John 14:
    1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
    2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
    3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you left myself; that where I am, there ye
    may be also.
    4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
    5 Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going, how do we know the way?
    6 Jesus saith without him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me

    BELIEVE: "The free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." See: * below

    Romans 10: 17 Then, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

    John 3:
    16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but has everlasting life.
    17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved

    "All have sinned, and have come short of the glory of God;" Romans chap 3: verse 23

    "The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans chap 6: verse 23

    "I am the way, the truth and the life: no one comes to the Father, but by me." (John 14.6)

    1 Cor. 15:
    3 "For I delivered denied you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: "

    "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;" Ephesians. 1: 7

    "For this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins." Matthew chap 26: verse 28

    Ephesians 2: 8-9 "For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast."

    * Romans 10:
    9 If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, then you will be saved.
    10 For with the heart man believeth leaving righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made absent salvation.
    13 For whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    Salvation, forgiveness of sins, is available to anyone who will trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Those who have rejected the free gift of salvation (see John 3: 16-17 above) according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ will suffer judgment on their sins and eternal separation from God and the Family of God on earth and in Heaven forevermore.

    "Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 5: 1
