Nearer, My God, to Thee: BYU Vocal Point’s best-selling song on iTunes performed here with the BYU Men’s Chorus. James Stevens’s arrangement of this Christian hymn creates a feeling that is less about peace and more about the struggles in life that bring us closer to God.

In articulo mortis
Caelitus mihi vires
Deo adjuvante non timendum
Dirige nos domine
Ad augusta per angusta
Sic itur ad astra
At the moment of death
My strength is from heaven
God helping, nothing should be feared
Direct us, O Lord
To high places by narrow roads
Such is the path to the stars
