MLB #63 As I Pray (Andrew Poirier) - PDF



The first time I heard the songsters at my corps sing As I Pray, I was transfixed. Joy Webb’s ability to merge a beautiful melody with simple, direct lyrics is a rare gift. This arrangement was first conceived as a horn solo and was recorded by the North York Temple Band on their CD Kingdom Seekers. I was recently asked to re-score it as a cornet solo and took the opportunity to make a few updates to the arrangement. Please take a moment to contemplate the words of the chorus: You are here! Deep inside the things I feel; You’re already part of any words I try to say, You are here! Nothing can my thoughts conceal! Help me, Saviour, as I pray.
