[MP3]      [Chord Sheet]

 

IN EVERY SINGLE SITUATION
Joyfully, in a country style

 

In every single situation You put me through
I'm learnin' more about You
I'm learnin' more about You
In every single situation You put me through
I'm learnin' more, more about You


More about Your love, more about Your plan
More about Your gentle guiding hand
In every single situation You put me through
I'm learnin' more, more about You

 

I wrote this song while traveling across Massachusetts in a bad snowstorm.  
I was a college student at the time (in the late 1970s).
My parents were very upset that I chose to drive to a 
Christian leadership retreat in such severe weather,  
but I sensed from the Lord that I had to go.

As the windshield wipers kept the beat, and I reflected on 
the importance of choosing ministry in spite of the risk, 
this song formed in my mind...

 

The Greater Grace Choir of Finland
sang "In Every Single Situation" 
at their 2003 summer conference !!

Listen to their 
live recording of this song!!!!

 

Greetings from Helsinki.  
Marja and I have translated two of your songs to Finnish.

We added a couple of more verses to
"In Every Single Situation"...  words like wisdom, 
whispering His advice, mercy and sufficient grace.  
I think this song is lovely and full of comfort...  
(Lea, from Finland)

See their Finnish translation

 

"I was really excited to hear all your songs and the service 
render by you for the glory of Jesus Christ.

I am a member of Church of South India and I am 
in charge of the Church Choir.

I just heard the song "In Every Single Situation" sung by the 
Greater Grace Choir of Finland.  It was fantastic.

I am interested to play the same song in my church.  
So will you please send me the PDF sheet music for the 
above song with midi?"  
(Ratheesh, from India)

I send you here two pdf-notes for "In every single situation" -
"Jokaikisessä tilanteessa". There´s one version with
Finnish words and another version without words. In both of the versions there are two pages.
The choir arrangement is made according to Finnish words, so it is a little bit different
from Ralph´s original song. The arrangement is for soprano-alto-bass.
The original English words you can find at the web-site of Newhopemusic.  

On the first page of the Finnish sheet "Iloisesti, kantri-tyyliin"
means "Joyfully, country-style". On the second page
"Huom! Aivan lopuksi (III säkeistössä) tahdit 28-31
lauletaan yhteensä 2 kertaa" means in English "Notice!
At the end (in the third verse) the bars 28-31 are to be sung totally
three times". "Säv.san. Ralph Merrifield...suom.san. sov.
Marja Väisänen" means in English "Composed and words
by Ralph Merrifield...Finnish words and arrangement by Marja Väisänen" 
 
These are handwritten notes, but I think they are quite clear...
and I hope this would help you in learning this song. 
(Lea, from Finland)

With Finnish Words            Notes Only

Hear this sung by the choir in Finland !!
