In this lesson we are going to take a look at this song from two different angles.  The first arrangement shows you how to play this song as a piano solo by mixing the melodic line into Pattern #1.  If you are not familiar with Pattern #1 then you need to go back to the home page and there is a diagram showing you how to play it.  If you play just only Pattern #1 by itself then you only have an accompaniment piano background to sing with, but sometimes, you want to punch in the melody of the song, or you just want to play it as a piano solo.  This pdf file will allow you to print up the music so that you can learn the technique of mixing a melodic line with Pattern #1.

You can vastly improve the sound of songs if you use modern extended chords instead of the simple triad chords.  For example, instead of playing a G major chord, you should try playing a G 9th chord.

Sometimes you can create a new song by using an established song as a vehicle to change the lyrics.  For example, you might change the lyrics in this song to:

I Love Him So.  or change it to:  Jesus loves me so. 
or change it to: God Is So Wonderful.  Or, change it to:  Let's Praise The Lord.

Anyhow, the idea here is to start changing the words.  When you get an entirely new set of words to the song,
then your next step is to create a new melody for the new lyrics, and then you will wind up with a new original song.  Get it copyrighted, send it out to song directors at churches, send it to popular Christian singers and major Christian Publishing Companies, and who knows maybe you will have a winner.  But, I promise you that you will have fun in the process.

Always seek the Lord in the development of a new Christian hymn.  Ask the Lord to give you a song.  Be persistent in asking the Lord.  Look at all the songs that the Lord gave King David in the book of Psalms.
