I wrote this song to express my inability to write music. Allow me to explain before you hurt your brain with that statement. I often have a tendency to take credit for things that I have not done, but that Christ has done through me. In this song, the message is that God existed long before I could even speak, much less before I could write. Thus, He is the true artist. I am merely a mouthpiece. The rhythms are tricky, but catchy (listen to it a few times before you look at the notation). Give me some feedback, expecially about the modulation and let me know whether you think the rhythmic patterns are too difficult. And remember to address all positive comments to the true artist, and not to me. I'll only take credit for the weaknesses and mistakes.

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.
