Victory in Jesus – Student Piano Piece

I am officially opening a new category of arrangements here, and hope to begin providing student-level arrangements on a somewhat regular basis. Right now, 100% of the inspiration is coming from my desire to provide my children with arrangements of hymns and songs they enjoy, but I would welcome any requests from you as well!
This song is one my oldest son requested. He’s a “lively fellow” ;-) and so I tried to incorporate a bit of “jauntiness” into this arrangement. The difficulty level of this piece corresponds well with the latter portion of Alfred’s Premier Piano Course Level 2B. Practically, this arrangement incorporates the following concepts:
1) Playing in G Major and C Major (with a key change)
2) Playing single eighth notes
3) Ties and syncopation
4) Intricate fingering and shifting hand positions
5) Accidentals and chromatic movement
6) Use of Damper Pedal
7) Dynamic and tempo variation
