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.

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.

Full details

Jesus said we’re supposed to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. I was puzzled as to what He would have us pray. But somehow this hymn ended up being 5 verses long. Lyrics are pastor approved. Scripture references are included on the lead sheet - available here under parts. An alternative version of this text, "God Bless Our Enemies," is also available here on Score Exchange.

This tune is a beautiful English folk song. It is so old that is has several names and many versions of lyrics associated with it (some a bit naughty). I also used this tune for an Epiphany hymn, "When Wise Men From Eastern Lands," which is also on Score Exchange.

I give permission for anyone to print, forward, photocopy, distribute, reprint and use words and/or music at no additional cost beyond what Score Exchange specifies. I do appreciate my name and contact information staying on any copies, etc. If you need any different arrangement, alternative text, etc. please feel free to e-mail me.
