Oh, How Good Is Christ the Lord

Oh, how good is
Christ the Lord!
On the cross he died for me.
He has pardoned all my sin.
Glory be to Jesus.
Glory be to Jesus!
Glory be to Jesus!
In three days he rose again.
Glory be to Jesus.

Notes

OH QUE BUENO is a simple tune with musical phrases bound by one syncopated rhythm, a typical trait of many popular tunes from Latin America. The tune is a fine example of the Puerto Rican corito ("a little song"). It is intended for unison singing, but choirs may wish to try singing in harmony. Dale Grotenhuis (PHH 4) prepared the harmonization in 1985. Use light accompaniment with guitars or piano; improvise some additional percussion rhythms. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1988
