I began writing "Send Us on Your Way" while attending the high school graduation of a nephew. The school is in Santa Fe, NM, which explains the reference to the name of this city in the chorus. Besides graduations, I was wondering if this song would work for weddings. It can also be a general purpose vocal solo or ensemble and some people have expressed interest in using the chorus at the end of worship services. Lyrics follow:

SEND US ON YOUR WAY

Words and music by Mary Rose Jensen

V. 1

Through the world’s confusion, we hear a hopeful sound:

Stories you have given tell peace and joy are found

In the One who rose again when death had had its day.

We can travel bravely for He has been this way.

Knowing You have loved us so, we come to You and pray:

CHORUS:

Send us on Your way.

Show us how to walk in grace.

Keep us on the road of holy faith.

Send us on Your way.

V. 2

If the world were perfect, not damaged in the fall,

If our hearts were holy, not selfish, hard and small,

We would see You constantly, not just through eyes of faith.

We would love you fully, not struggle to obey.

Knowing life is as it is, we come to You and pray:

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

In how we live, may we acknowledge You,

Loving Your law, seeking Your truth.

CHORUS

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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
