A few weeks ago we discovered an arrangement for an old song we truly love, “Hallelujah! What A Savior” by Philip P. Bliss.
The arrangement is by Aaron Ivey with Austin Stone Worship. Ivey’s arrangement is lively and loud with an added chorus and some changes to several verses from a previous arrangement by Bob Kauflin with Sovereign Grace Music. We really love the added chorus:
Hallelujah! praise to the One
Whose blood has pardoned me
Oh what a Savior! Redeemer and King
Your love has rescued me
We do prefer keeping the original and unmodified five – compelling – gospel centered verses and feel that with the added chorus it makes an excellent congregational version. We do it in the Key of G and I’ve attached a chord chart for download if you wish to use it with your church family.
You can view and listen to Aaron Ivey’s version on youtube here. Enjoy worshiping the Savior – and what a Savior is He!
