  1. I love this song! This was a song I sang when I use to teach in the Catholic school’s mass service. I never learned how to play it. What a beautiful song! Thank you so much! It is a classic!

  2. Hi! I begun piano just 5 months ago. I can play by 👂🏼. But It takes a LONG time to piece together a song that way, so I found your website to learn a favorite song. Here I am Lord. I have been going out every Sunday late night, to give out hot homemade meals to the homeless and drug-users at various hotels. This song reflects my heart for these people. I have since listening to your tutorial begun to learn chords. I was playing them unknowingly 😂. Please pray for me to learn much faster, so I can write my own music, as this is my hearts desire, to play and sing. Eventually, I would like to play and sing to these people when we go out to feed them. I will being the church amd Jesus, to them! Many are 90 pounds and do not eat, rather spend their money on drugs. Thank you for sharing and I have learned a lot. I wish there was a way to slow up the videos and watch you play the chords more slowly. I have a difficult time (Very difficult time), getting the notes down, since I am a beginner. It takes me several, like 20 times, rewinding, to try and get each note. But I am a rookie and I do t know the chords. Thank you for the chart and thank you for what you are doing. Your tutorials will be a blessing to many!!

    1. Donna. Oh my goodness – your ministry is so amazing!! Make me cry when thinking about the Body of Christ and how we all have a very specific place in the body! Thank you so much for sharing that <3<3

      As far as watching my videos slow motion, you CAN!! Just click on the gear icon on the bottom right corner and select the "playback speed" to a slower version.

      Hope that helps!
