Instead of "O Lord, every nation on earth will adore You", I've changed it to be the verbatim - "Lord, every nation on earth will adore You." I also made all of the verses verbatim and added the fourth verse.

You may be wondering why there are two settings of this up on ScoreExchange - well, when I was first setting these to music in the early 2000's, I literally had forgotten that I had already set it, and made another one. I can't remember, but I think the old version of this one came first (before the one that starts with the Fmaj7).

By the way, I watched the funeral mass for Fr. Michael Scanlan (who founded Franciscan University of Steubenville) on EWTN today. It was beautiful. I think he's going to be a saint, because I've been asking him to pray for me and my family for certain things, and the Lord has answered! So… Fr. Mike, pray for us! God bless!

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.
