The text to this hymn originated as a poem by James
Montgomery, titled, “The Stranger and His Friend.” It was later set to music by
George Coles, a New York City preacher, and adopted as a hymn by Christian
congregations in the United States and the United Kingdom. John Taylor learned
the hymn while serving a mission in England in 1840 and introduced it into the
LDS church. It was a favorite hymn of the prophet Joseph Smith, who requested
that John Taylor sing it to him in the Carthage Jail before he was
martyred.  The version he sang was
actually set to a different tune that John Taylor wrote himself. This piano
duet arrangement is based on the original melody by George Coles. One piano, four
hands. Primo and secondo parts are both intermediate level in difficulty. Purchase price is for two copies so you and your duet partner can each have one. 5
pages for each part, or 11 pages for the combined score. The PDF download

time: approximately 3:30. Included in the “Piano Duets: The Sacred Collection”
