Jesus firm foundation:

12:25:00 Karen Li 0 Comments

This week's Klove free song is Jesus a Firm Foundation. It's part of a album with revamped traditional hymns by leading Christian artists. In most churches today, hymnals stay on the seats and the congregation focuses their attention to big projection screens. While there are great modern christian songs, there is such richness in traditional hymns. Yet, the four part harmonies in which these are based are seen as out dated. 

It was so exciting to find out about this new album which marries the traditional hymns with modern interpretations. Hopefully, this will prolong the relevance of the stories and meanings behind these hymns. Hymns include: Turn your eyes upon Jesus, I surrender all, Blessed assurance, it is well (oh my soul).

Jesus, Firm Foundation Chords - Mike Donehey feat. Steven Curtis Chapman, Mark Hall & Mandisa
*Notes*
This is how it sounds to me on a 12 string, but i also played on a 6 string and it
sounds accurate to me... Please comment any changes and I will make them, no need
to make more versions if we can get it right in one version.
Thanks everyone!
