This hymn has been saddled with a number of tunes – mostly tunes that do not suit it particularly well, or which are more strongly associated with other words. I hope church musicians will agree that this new tune suits the words. If you use it, please be so kind as to let me know by email (via my Sibelius web page). I am very grateful to those people who get in touch and let me know when they use my original compositions and hymn arrangements. Thank you.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
