Most church pianists find it a challenge to dress-up hymns such as “O How I Love Jesus”. This particular hymn mainly consists of only two different chords the I and V chords)… with an occasional ii chord.
So…how to be creative with a hymn containing minimal chord changes? I’m glad you asked!
(I’m currently working on a congregational piano arrangement book for church pianists that need more than the hymnal to play from.)
“O How I Love Jesus” is one of the ones I’m working on now. The complete arrangement will have two verses. Click below to download the first verse of “O How I Love Jesus” FREE!
Hopefully, the following free congregational arrangement will spark some creative ideas of your own.
*Special note: The congregational hymns in my book will be in lower keys than the regular hymnal…making the hymns more singer-friendly.
