Pass Me Not - Brass Band

Play Garritan® Audio Track

This is the brass band accompaniment to the solo "Pass Me Not'", written for my brother Ron Shoults, longtime trombone player in the Chicago Staff Band and Oakbrook Terrace Band. Ron is also the songster leader (choir director) at the Oakbrook Terrace Corps of the Salvation Army. This song by Fanny Crosby is based on the story of the blind beggar who called out to Jesus as he was passing by, found in Luke 18:35-43. This arrangement features verses 1, 2, and 4. written for my brother Ron Shoults.

The lyrics to this song:

Pass me not, O gentle Saviour,
Hear my humble cry;
And while others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

(Chorus)
Saviour! Saviour!
Hear my humble cry,
And while others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Let me at the throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief,
Kneeling there in deep contrition;
Help my unbelief.

Thou the spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me,
Whom have I on earth beside Thee?
Whom in Heaven but Thee?

Here is a video of Ron Shoults playing this with the Oakbrook Terrace Corps band on March 13, 2022.
