When the Cries of Your Faithful Believers are Heard (IMANDRA) Prayer for the persecuted church

I like this tune so much that I’ve written 2 sets of lyrics to it. IMANDRA is attributed to Ananias Davisson (1780-1857), who was a printer in Virginia and compiled "Kentucky Harmony," a shape-note tunebook, in 1816. It is not certain whether he actually wrote IMANDRA or just collected and harmonized it.

Currently, more Christians suffer persecution than at any time in history. It is estimated that tens of thousands of people are killed every year because of their belief in Christ and hundreds of millions suffer. For more information, see the many web sites concerning persecution of Christians, such as Voice of the Martyrs at www.persecution.com and www.persecution.net Also Open Doors at www.opendoors.org.au/ and International Christian Concern at www.persecution.org/

"When the Cries of Your Faithful Believers are Heard" would be an appropriate song for the International Day of Prayer held each year in November - see www.idop.org/

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, 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 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.
