Subject: Lyr Req: As long as I have music - Don Besig
From: bradfordian

Anybody have the words for this?

I've just heard it sang by a combined ladies choir. One of thoses which easily releases the emotions.

"What a celebration ......., Don Besig, renowned director, composer of hundreds of anthems, and adjudicator for school auditions and competitions,"

Besig travels the United States presenting workshops for teachers, choir directors, and choir members. He will direct three of his anthems for a combined choir of 50 or more. Organist for these anthems will be Nancy Harp, organist at Liverpool UMC, and also accompanying on flute will be Joy Bufano of Clay. Bufano is a music teacher and a masters-degree flutist from Syracuse University.

Many area churches perform anthems that Don and Nancy Price have collaborated on. The anthems are suited for small church volunteer choirs. The Bowen's Corners Choir has attended Besig's annual workshops in Fairport (his home church) for the past two years.

(There is supposed to be a midi file, playable by clicking the button at the bottom of that page, but it didn't work for me.)

AS LONG AS I HAVE MUSIC
Words by: Don Besig & Nancy Price
Music by: Don Besig

When the world seems far beyond me
And I have no place to go,
When my life seems cold and empty
And I feel I'm all alone,

Then a song that I remember
Helps to ease my troubled mind
And I find the strength within me
To reach out just one more time.

For as long as I have music,
As long as there's a song for me to sing,
I can find my way; I can see a brighter day.
The music in my life will set my spirit free!

When the road is dark and lonely,
And I feel I want to cry,
When the dreams I keep inside me
Seem to fade and almost die,

Then I call upon my music
And it helps to dry my tears,
And I know that I can make it.
I'll go on, despite my fears.

For as long as I have music,
As long as there's a song for me to sing,
I can find my way; I can see a brighter day.
The music in my life will set my spirit free!

Set it free!

There's a YouTube video here (click) - from the "Hour of Power" broadcast at the Crystal Cathedral near Disneyland. Personally, I think Rev. Schuller was one of the best of the television evangelists, and I often enjoyed his programs. Schuller was a disciple of Norman Vincent Peale.

Another video this one from New Berlin West Middle and High School. I'm guessing that's from New BERlin, Wisconsin - not far from Milwaukee.
