Blessed Assurance (McIntyre)

Gospel-styled piano accompaniment by Dean McIntyre

This alternate piano accompaniment for congregational singing of Fanny Crosby and Phoebe Knapp's favorite hymn (UM Hymnal, #369) has the hallmarks of gospel-style piano playing: quadruple vs. triple time (12/8 vs. 9/8), slower tempo, subdivided beats into triplets, heavy downbeat accents. Also note the change of key from D to C major.
