Chris Tomlin’s popular worship ballad “Good, Good Father” works best in your praise set these three ways:

1. …at the end of your praise set.
2. …as an offertory special.
3. …as the song right before the sermon.

Here’s how you can use the WorshipFlow Underscore 16 with “Good, Good Father” (download it for FREE.) First, decide the key your congregation will be singing “Good, Good Father.” Tomlin’s recording is in A, but as with most Tomlin songs, I’ll warn you to NOT have your church sing them in his original key. Those keys fit his voice best for his recordings, but usually that’s too high for your church.

I’d suggest dropping the song one step to the key of G – it’s still a good guitar key and much more accessible.

Then, select the same key for Underscore 16, either piano, pad or chord charts. When you use a WorshipFlow Underscore with popular praise songs, make sure the Underscore flows seamlessly right into or out of the praise song – no stopping, no dead space.

Following are the three examples of “Good, Good Father” in your praise set with Underscore 16:

1. …at the end of your praise set.

praise song 2

Underscore 16 under prayer, Scripture reading or video

2. …as an offertory special. This example allows you to use both the piano and pad Underscore:

offering: Underscore 16 (piano version)
Good, Good Father

Play the piano version of Underscore 16 during the offertory talk and prayer, flow directly into “Good, Good Father,” then play the pad version of Underscore 16 under a prayer, flowing right into the sermon.

3. …as the song right before the sermon.
