Beautiful Savior Piano Solo

Beautiful Savior

Would you believe that the hymn, Beautiful Savior, was written in the 1600s? Crazy, huh? I’ve always loved the song, and had fun coming up with an arrangement for it. Let me know if you’d like me to make the sheet music available for purchase. I usually choose what music to put on sheet music based on the demand, so let me know if you’d like it in sheet music!

Beautiful Savior
by Author Unknown, 1677

Beautiful Savior,
King of Creation,
Son of God and Son of Man!
Truly I’d love Thee,
Truly I’d serve Thee,
Light of my soul, my Joy, my Crown.

Fair are the meadows,
Fair are the woodlands,
Robed in flowers of blooming spring;
Jesus is fairer,
Jesus is purer;
He makes our sorrowing spirit sing.

Fair is the sunshine,
Fair is the moonlight,
Bright the sparkling stars on high;
Jesus shines brighter,
Jesus shines purer,
Than all the angels in the sky.

Beautiful Savior,
Lord of the nations,
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor,
Praise, adoration,
Now and forevermore be Thine!

Amazing Grace: Piano Solo Arrangement
(MP3 and Sheet Music)

Amazing Grace

The classic Christian hymn, Amazing Grace, was written by John Newton in 1772. John has an interesting story. As a slave trader, John had a profitable career. Later, seeing the error of slavery, he turned his heart and devoted the rest of his life to the abolition of slavery. As one feeling the need for divine grace for his involvement in the horror of slavery, he said, “I hope it will always be a subject of humiliating reflection to me . . . that I was once an active instrument in a business at which my heart now shudders.”

Obviously, our actions must reflect our efforts to follow the Savior, Jesus Christ, but all of us, at some time in our lives, come to the realization that there is no hope without His help. Then, once coming upon that beautiful grace and forgiveness, we find that his mercy is a necessary part of our existence every hour of every day.

Without the Lord, we have nothing, but with Him we have everything. We can and should do all in our power to serve, honor, worship, and love Him, but in the end, it will be his incredible grace that will save us.

Amazing Grace

Original Lyrics, by John Newton, 1772

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now I’m found,
Was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believed!

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call’d me here below,
Will be forever mine.

We’ll Bring the World His Truth

We’ll Bring the World His Truth

I’ve always loved the primary song, We’ll Bring the World His Truth. I was asked to play a musical number in a stake priesthood meeting a couple weeks ago, and the topic was missionary work. I decided this was a great excuse to come up with an arrangement for it. Let me know if you’d like me to make it into sheet music. I’ll have to get permissions from Janice Kapp Perry for that, since the sheet music wouldn’t be free, but I’m willing to get permission if you guys want to be able to play it! Either way, enjoy!

Oh Come, Oh Come Immanuel

Here’s an arrangement I wrote last year of Oh Come, Oh Come Immanuel.  I’m introducing it again, but earlier this year.  I could create the sheet music for it in a matter of a couple weeks if there is a demand for it.  I’d even throw the simple chords on it for if you play the guitar.  The thing I like about this one is it’s really easy and fun to play.  I think It’s my favorite of my original Christmas arrangements so far.  By the way, there’s still time for me to write some Christmas arrangements before December, so if you have a favorite Christmas song, let me know and I’ll make a piano solo version or piano/flute version, depending on the piece.

Sheet music for this piece is now available at http://chashathaway.com

Oh Come, Oh Come Immanuel

I’ve always loved the song, Oh Come, Oh Come Immanuel.  To me it resonates the Passover cry that the Messiah might come.  I can picture the beginnings of the passover celebrations beginning, and the pleading prayer to God that the Messiah might come.

Then in the midst of those prayers, He came – quietly.  In fact His coming was so quiet that while He continued with them, their prayers and pleadings continued.  He dwelt among them, blessed them, taught them the true Gospel, fulfilled the law of Moses, yet their pleading continued.  Come Immanuel, come.

He healed them, suffered the atonement for them, and died for them.  He even rose from the dead for them, yet their pleadings continued.  Come Immanuel, come!

And for many, those prayers still continue today.
