Faithfulness is a great song from the Hillsong Worship Open Heaven River Wild album – I particularly like how it references lyrically and melodically the old ‘Great Is Thy Faithfulness’ hymn. This one is very singable. In our resources, we chose to sing it in the same key as the album – A. We are using key of G chords with a capo on the 2nd fret for the acoustic videos.

This is a simple song with four basic chords, and a variation of the C chord (or E in the open B key) – a C6. To play the C6, simply bar your first finger and fret the D and G strings on the 2nd fret.

I’ve listed the basic strumming pattern below for this song, but you’ll really want to vary your strumming in this one. Dynamics are very important. Especially in the slower/softer section, you’ll want to strum less.
