This piano version of How Great Thou art is perfect for Levels 1 and 2. To make it easy for beginners, I have arranged How Great Thou art in the key C.

The hymn “How Great Thou Art” has been a favorite of mine for a long time. This song has so many beautiful lyrics. This song reflects on God’s Creation, Christ’s sacrifice, and Christ’s return in one song. The chorus is praised for these reflections.

This hymn is for beginning pianists who want to learn how to play the piano.

Accessible Version (Key Of C)

The first version is straightforward. The left hand can only play the C, F, or G7 chords. This is ideal for beginners or children in levels 1 or 2.

Intermediate Version (Key Of G)

I am currently working on an intermediate piano solo. Keep an eye out for it!

How Great Thou Art Piano Notes/Key

How Great Thou Art is a traditional hymnal in the key B-flat. This key is not ideal for beginners, but it is a favorite of many who love the song. I, therefore, chose to place it in C for beginner and G for intermediate.

Despite this, How Great Thou art sounds beautiful in flat keys. Flat keys such as Db have a lovely mellow tone that complements the song perfectly. These keys are great for advanced players of the piano.

Please pay attention to the dynamics of this song as you learn it! These are just some of the notes I have added to the music.

The melody is in the right hand, so it should be louder than the left.

The chorus is the culmination of the piece. Swell to make it louder, particularly in the right hand

You can also repeat the chorus and verse multiple times. You can do the verse and chorus several times.

Chords and Lyrics

The chords are simple, even though the rhythm and notes can confuse this song.

Higher-level versions of this hymn will have more complicated chords. The song’s root chords are three simple chords. Beginners can skip the more difficult ones.

These chords are C major/F major, G major/G7, and one D minor chord at the chorus.

These chords are great for beginners and all other instruments.

You should use a simple chord diagram in C or G to perform How Great Thou Art with a band.

Verse 1

My God, Oh Lord!

In awe of my wonder,

Take into account all that Thy hands have done for the worlds

I see the stars, and I hear the rolling thunder.

Thy power in all things is displayed.


My Savior God to Thee then sings my soul

How great Thou art!

My Savior God to Thee then sings my soul

How great Thou art!

Verse 2

When I believe that God is one, His Son does not spare

I can’t take it in, and I Sent Him to death

My burden is gladly carried on the cross

He died and bled to remove my sin

Verse 3

With shouts of acclamation, when Christ will come

Please take me home! What joy will fill my heart?

In humble adoration, I will bow.

Then, proclaim, “My God, how great Thou art!”
