    Try Banks Music in York
    I buy all our band music through them as 9 times out of 10 it's cheaper than going through the publishers. If you actually phone them they'll willingly do all the searching to find a particular piece and then order it in for you

    There's no (official!) arrangement of this with piano or organ backing.
    Any unofficial arrangements would, I guess, be in breach of our copyright!

    Are there any versions just for piano or ogan??

    No, the original was a song for SATB with piano accompaniment.

    Music and lyrics by Joy Webb
    Arranged for brass band by Ivor Bosanko

    When I'm tired and nothing's going right for me;
    When things I've counted on just do not come my way;
    When in my mind the thick grey folds of doubt arise,
    It's then I seem to hear him say:

    Share my yoke and find that I am joined with you.
    Your slightest movement I shall feel and be there too!
    Share my yoke and come the way that I must go!
    In our "togetherness" my peace you'll know;
    The world beholding us will see it so!

    When I'm perplexed and no one's understanding me;
    When even safest thoughts collapse in disarray;
    When I've lost the things that always seemed so sure,
    It's then I need to hear him say: (repeat chorus)

    When I'm alone and nothing's getting through to me;
    And isolation that increases day by day;
    When closest friends can seem a thousand miles away,
    It's then I long to hear him say: (repeat chorus)
