This hymn is dedicated to my ancestors and all the Mormon pioneers that crossed the plains in search of a refuge from hatred and persecution, which they found in the Salt Lake valley in what today is the State of Utah. I hope you will forgive the fact that some of the lyrics are distinctly LDS and consider instead the tremendous courage, faith, and sacrifice of all those throughout history who have sought religious freedom. The call to service and sacrifice in the last verse is, of course, relevant to members of all denominations. An early version of this hymn was a finalist in the 2000 LDS Church Music Submission. I hope you enjoy it and would appreciate your comments and constructive criticism.

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.
