The wonder of music

In the midst of the turmoil and fear of the last week, a very peaceful occasion occurred to a man who may have touched as many lives as anyone in our time, at least through the mode of music.

At age 104, George Beverly Shea, the stirring gospel singer for over 50 years in Billy Graham crusades, passed away in his home, located just one mile away from the home of his good friend, Graham, near Montreat, N.C.

Finally, in the life of this godly, humble man, the words of one of his favorite songs, “Until Then,” became reality.

“But until then, my heart will go on singing, until then, with joy I’ll carry on, until the day, my eyes behold that city, until the day God calls me home,” Graham would sing.
