Hey guys. I really need your help.

I have to play a song tomorrow, and I don't how exactly I should play it. They gave me a sheet of chords but if Iplay only the chords it doesn't sound like the song... are they inversions? I really need help, and am clueless as to what they expect out of me... again, this is due tomorrow morning. I really need help.

here is the song/music I was given:

 

(Verse.1)

.............F..................Dm..........C

In.Christ.alone.my.hope.is.found

F/A......Bb..........C...................F

He.is.my.light.my.strength.my.song

........Bb......F................Dm........C

This.Cornerstone,.this.solid.Ground

F/A....................Bb..........C.................F

Firm.through.the.fiercest.drought.and.storm

...........F/A.......Bb.............Dm........C

What.heights.of.love.,.what.depths.of.peace

............F/A....Bb.............Dm........C

When.fears.are.stilled.when.strivings.cease!

.....Bb........F.........Dm.....C

My.Comforter.my.All.in.All

.........F/A...Bb........C.........F

Here.in.the.love.of.Christ.I.stand

F....F/A...Bb....Dm...Bb....

Whoa......................Whoa..........

F....F/A...Bb....Dm...Bb....

Whoa......................Whoa...

There.in.the.ground.His.body.lay

Light.of.the.world.by.darkness.slain

Then.bursting.forth.in.glorious.Day

Up.from.the.grave.He.rose.again!

And.as.He.stands.in.victory

Sin's.curse.has.lost.its.grip.on.me

For.I.am.His.and.He.is.mine

Bought.with.the.precious.blood.of.Christ

Whoa.Whoa.Whoa.Whoa

No.guilt.in.life.no.fear.in.death

This.is.the.power.of.Christ.in.me

From.life's.first.cry.to.final.breath

Jesus.commands.my.destiny

No.power.of.hell.no.scheme.of.man

Can.ever.pluck.me.from.His.hand

Till.He.returns.or.calls.me.home

Here.in.the.love.of.Christ.I'll.stand!

Whoa.Whoa.In.Christ.Alone.Whoa

.......

F...........................F/.G.........................F/A...................Bb

I.find.my.strength.I.find.my.hope.I.find.my.help.in.Christ.alone

C/F.................................F/.G..

When.fear.ascends.when.darkness.falls

F/.A...............Bb

I.find.my.peace.in.Christ.alone

1

F.............................F/.G.........................F/A....................Bb

I.give.my.life.I.give.my.all.I.sing.this.song.to.Christ.alone.

C/F.............................F/.G.................F/A..............Bb.........................

The.King.of.kings.the.Lord.of.all,.all.heaven.sings.to.Christ.alone

.F....F/A.....Bb........Dm.....Bb.........

To.Christ.alone.........In.Christ.alone

Line 1: the word "Christ" play a Bb. (just like "Corner" in line 3)

Line 1: the Dm should be a Bb.

Line 2: the word "strength" should be a Gm7 leading to a C all in the same word.

Line 4: the word "drought" should be an F/A but line 5 is OK as written.

 

All other lines that have the same melody sequence as the first 2 lines have the same chords as I posted above.

 

I am not familiar with the last part unfortunately. I do know that most people play this tune in Eb instead of F.

One thing that will help is to have a piano/strings pad.

That will help set the right atmosphere for the song.

Also,if you can, set up so you can see the singer/worship leader

singing, that will at least give you some help where you're at

in the song, and the dynamics.

 

hope that's some help

What keyboard are you playing? My church band plays this song and I like playing a fairly hot B3. keeping it down on the first half and bringing it up with some leslie on the second half of each verse. Our band has two guitars, bass, drums, piano and me on the keyboard. Hope you can have some fun with this song. ~BOB
I'm practicing so that people can maybe go "wow" at an imaginary gig I'll never play. -Nadroj

Are you sure they're playing like the YouTube. I sat in with a buddy for his church and they gave me a chord chart that didn't match the music. Sure enough, THEY played it like the chord chart.

For solo piano I would basicly play the triad in the right hand and octaves (roots) in the left hand on beats 1 and 3 and beat my left thumb on the backbeats (2 and 4)... then rave it up as the song unfolds (eventually rocking octaves in eighths in left hand)
