Here is the rest of the free piano arrangement of “Blessed Assurance”. The complete arrangement contains two verses and choruses. The second verse is actually arranged for the last verse of “Blessed Assurance”.
Explanation of my note on page three: “Watch the director closely here” is meant for the final verse. Of course the church pianist should watch the director through the entire song but especially where a slow down occurs. Many directors begin to broaden the tempo at this part of the hymn…making it easier for the church pianist to throw in some busy note passages such as you see in the right hand on the words: “Sa-viour” and “long”. Adding extra notes helps to maintain a steady tempo during slower sections.
Keep in mind…every church sings a different tempo…making the accompaniment feel SO different.
