I absolutely love the tune to If You Could Hie to Kolob. When I came up with my piano solo arrangement, I was blown away by all of your kindness and support. To date, it’s my bestselling sheet music.
I got the idea to do another arrangement of the tune about a year ago, and have been working since to decide the best way to go about it. I’m sure the African influence on my music has nothing to do with the two years I spent in Africa (:
The words in the music are Swahili. You may recognize “Hakuna.” Disney inaccurately translated hakuna matata as “No worries.” But the real translation is “there is no problem,” which I guess is about the same thing. Anyway, “Hakuna Mwisho” means, “There is no end.”
So the translation of these words is basically
There is no end to matter
There is no end to wisdom,
There is no end to wisdom
There is no end to glory
There is no end to youth
There is no death above
The lyrics repeat sometimes and shuffle the order, but that’s basically it.
After long hours and much pain and suffering (okay, exaggeration, I know), the sheet music for my original arrangement of If You Could Hie to Kolob is now available for purchase.
Many many thanks to all of you who have been requesting and waiting for it. You guys are AWESOME!!! You have no idea how happy it makes me to learn how much you enjoy the music. I just wish I had the means to simply give it to everyone for free! Thanks you guys!
It’s really simple to purchase, too. Just click the Add to Cart button and fill in the information requested. Once you pay, it will give you a link to download the PDF of the sheet music immediately, and you can print it out from home or wherever you want. You can keep the file on your computer in case something happens to your hard copy, too. Just don’t distribute it to all your friends – stinky, I know, hopefully someday that will be an option, but unfortunately it’s not yet. But feel free to perform it for people! I know from experience that it’s a great church musical number.

I intend to eventually put all my arrangements on sheet music, but it will take some time. Please tell me if there is one that you would like to see in sheet music. I make the sheet music based on the demand, so tell me which you would like to see in sheet music!
