“Come, follow me,” the Savior said
Then let us in his footsteps tread
For thus alone can we be one
With God’s own loved begotten Son

    Dear Sally Deford,
    I am not able to express how much I appreciate your arrangements (piano solo as well as vocal-choral).
    You are truly a gifted composer, and I have no doubt our Lord speaks through you. I have had the privilege of using your Beautiful Savior choral arrangement and a number of piano arrangements in a number of church services . Your music is so appropriate for those smaller churches coming out of the pandemic with smaller choirs, with pianos available as the only instrument for worship.
    Your material has enhanced a number of worship services I have played.
    I want to thank you for sharing your musical gifts

    When I began to learn this piano solo, 2Nephi 26:23-28 came to mind. The beginning (measures 1-13) to me is a call to come listen and then transitions into being taught (measures 14-28). Page 2 at the accelerando (measure 33) is an awakening that then winds down to a pondering of what was taught (42-55).
    Page 3 has another realization (56 measure) followed by more contemplation (59). Then comes the sweet quiet call of the Savior, “Come Follow Me” at measure 67. Interesting note, the right hand is in chords of 3….I think of the Godhead. Then come the realization, a witness of the Holy Ghost that what was taught is true, begins at measure 82 with joy to 86. And at measure 87 the quiet loving continued call of the Savior, “Come Follow Me, Come Follow Me, Come Follow Me.” This is my interpretation. I have often wondered what you were feeling as you wrote and played this piano solo. You have a great gift. Thank you for sharing it.

    Sally, I agree with Mindy!! I have been searching for a beautiful accompaniment to go along with our Primary singing this hymn for 2019! When Program time comes, the most beautiful songs are the songs we all know, but with beautiful accompaniment. I would LOVE the kind of arrangement that Mindy mentioned 🙂

    • Christine Callister

      I am looking for an arrangement for Primary also. Would love this!!!

  5. Mindy

    Sally, I love your arrangements! I would love to request a nice arrangement of “Come, Follow Me” for Primary Children to sing, and with possibly the congregation joining on the last verse. Also it would be nice if it could be written such that it would be easy to add or subtract the number of verses that a ward would choose to do, since there are a lot of verses and not all wards would do all 6 verses, but some would. It would be perfect for the 2019 theme, to start learning in January, and to use in the Primary Sacrament Meeting Presentation in the fall of 2019. Please consider writing this and I would love a reply! Thanks!

    My heart fills with the Savior’s love when playing this lovely piano arrangement. Such a beautiful peace comes through! Thank you for sharing your well-developed talent.

    I am new to this sight. I have found some songs that I really love, but my question is how do I listen to the piano solos. I am the new music coordinator for my ward and I’m trying to find some good musical numbers, and have them fit with the rest of the songs.

  8. Edene from Kaua'i, Hawaii

    I always feel so blessed when asked to sing solos in church, baptisms, and funerals, but after listening to this arrangement, I fully regret not learning to play the piano. I must buy a piano after listening to this moving and beautiful arrangement. I will learn to play now…I just must…this music stirs up wonderful feelings of gratitude for our Savior that brings tears of love to my eyes. Mahalo nui loa and may Heavenly Father continue to shower you with rich blessings as well as your family for every generation that follows.

    Thank you so much for sharing your talent! My daughter was asked to play in Sacrament meeting and this was the perfect song. Beautiful but not overly-complicated.

  10. Kristen

    I thought this was a very lovely arrangement of a melody that can often seem too simple for the words that go with it. Well done!
