God is So Good
Lyrics and Sheet Music

God is So Good lyrics and sheet music, FREE!  This simple and sweet hymn is perfect for beginning musicians.

Like Mary Had a Little Lamb and Ode to Joy, this song has just five different notes, so it fits into the hand nicely.  Like the lyrics, the melody is predictable, but in a pleasing way...

How nice that the gospel hymn's lyrics are beautiful, too.

Here's the easiest version of this pretty little hymn, free!

God is Good lyrics and sheet music for beginner piano

This popular hymn's lyrics were invented as friends on a car trip rode along,  goes the story.  

One website claims that one lady made up the melody, and soon they were all singing and making up their own verses.  

I have seen more verses than the hymn song lyrics I've put into this sheet music.

Below is an arrangement that is just a bit harder.

It encourages beginning students to add the tonic chord, C, plus the IV and V chords in their smallest forms.

These tiny chord fragments are labeled the "G pinch" and "Baby F".

Easy piano song God is So Good

Now here are two piano arrangements of this hymn in the keys of C and D.

Though they sound and look easy, they require quite a bit of skill to play!  

Note that this version, and the lead sheets after, add a minor chord after the IV chord.  

That's the ordinary chord progression for this song, but I decided not to use it with the very easy versions.
