My Heavenly Father Loves Me (Piano Duet)

About the Song

Words & Music by C.W. McMaster, used by permission.
Arranged by Sally DeFord

To me (and almost everyone else I know) this song will always be “Whenever I Hear the Song of a Bird,” whatever they may choose to call it. This arrangement is based on the melody as it originally appeared in the old “Sing With Me,” not the new modified melody (which is more suited to the modern lack of range) in “The Children’s Songbook.” I arranged this to play with one of my piano students–the primo is fairly easy, the secondo is more advanced.

Piano duet:

Lyrics

Whenever I hear the song of a bird
Or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face
Or the wind as it rushes by,
Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by our lilac tree,
I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heav’nly Father created for me.

He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings.
He gave me my ears that I might hear
The magical sound of things.
He gave me my life, my mind, my heart:
I thank him rev’rently
For all his creations, of which I’m a part.
Yes, I know Heav’nly Father loves me.
