Many people have received comfort and inspiration from this dramatic song which draws a comparison between the challenges and experiences of mortality and earth's perils such as 'seering deserts, raging oceans, and icy mountain peaks'; but then gives much hope by continuing - "…as the sun comes piercing Causing the darkness to cease, I hear the voice of my Father, And feel a most infinite peace." Our Father's voice is brought to our remembrance with the words: "Think thee that I would desert thee? Think thee that I do not care? Know thee that I would not give thee more than thou canst bear?" From the Musical Drama: "As I have Loved You" this piece is scored for Vocal Solo with SATB Choir/piano OR orchesta accompaniment, and concludes with a repeat of the "Think Thee motive" played by Violin Solo (or other instrument of choice.)

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.
