    The title phrase gives the impression of a wide-eyed universalist anthem of feel-good hope. But a deeper look shows a hymn that recognizes both the struggles of life and the hope of faith in Christ. This Just Add People arrangement brings out the lament of the verses with a minor harmonization, switching to a major key when the refrain proclaims confidently: No storm can shake my inmost calm.”

    KINGSFOLD is a fitting tune for this hymn’s calm confidence in Jesus’s comfort, and this Just Add People arrangement includes a fresh piano accompaniment with a sparkling intro and outro. This arrangement is also available with the texts “O Sing a Song of Bethlehem” and “We Sing the Mighty Power of God.” The string quartet arrangement available below can also be used with congregational singing and adds lyrical interludes between each verse.

    Nothing beats Beethoven’s original as found in the 9th Symphony, but if your pianist or praise band is going to lead “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You” this arrangement really sparkles–and the strings really bring it to another level.

    PUER NOBIS is one of the great hymn tunes of the Church and is matched with many texts, including “O Splendor of God’s Glory Bright” and “On Jordan’s Banks the Baptist’s Cry.” I tried to bring out its folk song flavor in a way that often gets lost in the four-part hymnal arrangement. (Note: the demo above uses the text “On Jordan’s Banks.”)

    PUER NOBIS is one of the great hymn tunes of the Church and is matched with many texts, including “On Jordan’s Banks the Baptist’s Cry” and “O Splendor of God’s Glory Bright.” (This arrangement is available with either text.) I tried to bring out its folk song flavor with a piano accompaniment that is energetic. I feel like this arrangement brings out the sprightly nature of this tune in a way that often gets lost in the four-part hymnal.

    Piano accompaniment for congregational singing, with C instrument descant. Purchase price allows you to make as many copies as you need for your ensemble.
