He Will Hold Me Fast - Piano

This new hymn has become one of the most beloved hymns in our current modern hymnody. Matt Merker captured the very essence of this text's beauty and clarity in his melody and added lyrics.  In this setting, the piano will play each stanza, and creates long, shaped, lines, and highlights the harmonic nuance as the piano propel the lines forward. The meter changes are notated and easily accessible, and the repeats are clearly laid out. The chorus can be repeated here, if desired, as shown in this video, or the ending can come sooner as the music designates.
