ARRANGER NOTES — This brand new arrangement of one of the most beloved hymns should be played somewhat freely, being mindful of the poetry of these classic lyrics as you play. Even though some new harmonies are included, the musical style should work well in both traditional and more contemporary services of worship. The eight bar intro. is expanded into an interlude before the second chorus (bars 25 through 36). Also, bars 34 and 35 sound like a key change is approaching; however, it is instead a ‘pseudo modulation’ (actually remaining in the original key of Eb Major).
