This beautiful arrangement of this powerful invitation hymn has a lot of flexibility. This arrangement was written with an optional repeat of the verse and chorus. This allows you to utilize this piece during offertory time and even instrumentally during the invitation and tailor the length of the song to your needs. This really is an emotionally moving rendition of one of my favorite invitation hymns growing up.
you don’t have to have a rhythm section to play this piece. Not at all. As long as you have a piano player, they can play the written out piano part.
As true to the entire series, this arrangement features playable, easy to read rhythms for all sections.
