Parable of the 10 Virgins

I was asked to participate in a musical production of the parable of the 10 virgins in December.  The whole thing is a little long to post here, and maybe all of my friends who were in the production with me wouldn't really appreciate that anyway, but this is the finale.  The song is written in three parts and I love the tight harmonies.
The production involves each of the ladies singing a solo that reflects the personality of her character.  Five are wise and five are not.  I could see myself in each of the roles, especially the two that talk about how hard it is to take the time to renew ourselves spiritually each day.  "In the morning I am too busy and in the evening I am too tired."  As a result I have committed myself to do better at reading scriptures, praying and serving others a little bit better than I have before.
