Just As I Am, Without One Plea
Hymn music for piano & guitar

"Just As I Am, Without One Plea" is not just an "oldie goldie", it is actually quite a pretty song, with words that clearly reflect biblical truths.

If you have students who attend church or Sunday School, this song might be a good pick for them!

Just As I Am, Without One Plea piano music for intermediate students.

Despite the simplicity of the melody, I think this piece should be called "intermediate" level.  

Why?  Because of the constantly-changing chords in the left hand.

These aren't plain chords; they are chord inversions of all kinds.  Very good practice for your young students, but I DON'T think they will catch on to this arrangement quickly unless they really love this song and push hard on it.

Here's how this easy piano arrangement sounds... this is just an audio made on  my iPhone!


There's also quite a bit going on with the right hand fingering.

To make this melody smooth, there is a lot of finger replacement that must happen.

If you are interested in a much fuller-sounding arrangement, please check out the version I offer on my other website, SingTheBibleStory.com.  That arrangement is in the key of C, the key of Db (my favorite), and the key of D, which is easiest for guitar players.

And below is truly a beginner arrangement, set at Middle C.  The hands will not have to move.

Just As I Am Without One Plea very easy piano arrangement

Here is the hymn for guitar, in the keys of C and also D.  Finger-picking this song would be beautiful on the guitar:
