Angi writes: "Recently, I was preparing to play for two memorial services in one weekend and then an evening church gathering the next.  While sitting at the harp playing “Nearer,” “Abide” came to mind.  With an introduction and interlude, they can be played individually or as a medley.  This sheet music publication is within the intermediate level, key of C on one side and key of Eb on the reverse."
 
"I would like to share this sweet story.  As I was working out a final version of the medley (playing it over & over, with the ever-present red pencil for tweaks), I said to Kevin (my husband), “I love the melodies and words of these two old hymns.  I should play this medley at the end of each day, like an evening prayer.”  The next afternoon I emailed a working copy to a precious harpist-friend who is in her 80s and shared my comment. 
Here are excerpts from her reply:
I started playing “Nearer My God to Thee and Abide with Me” first.  I started replaying again and he (husband) came into the music room and sat down.  He said “Do you mind if I sit down and listen?”  Of course I said “please do.”  I played the medley twice more and he said “they are pretty.” He has NEVER come in the room, sat and listened.  The second run through I played with even more feeling.  I was so moved because these pieces, I could see, brought him peace.  You made my day … and our day.  I shared with him your comment about playing them every night before you go to bed.  I honestly think I may do that.  Beautiful arrangements!"
