This hymn most commonly appears in the key of G. For other keys, e.g. F (Celebration Hymnal for Everyone), Ab (New English Hymnal and The Hymnal 1982) or A (Mission Praise) please use this website's transpose function. I have followed most hymnals in retaining the forms "thou" and "thy". If the present descant doesn't fit your hymnal exactly, contact me at johnross@dunelm.org.uk and I will email you a PDF of the descant, amended as necessary.

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.
