This song is based on Jeremiah 29:11-14, God's promise through Jeremiah to the exiles that He had a plan for them. He would give them a future and a hope, and they would once again find him when they sought him. This was encouraging news for the exiles who were experiencing the judgment of God. These words are also an encouragement for us. No matter how much trouble is around us, we can trust that God has a plan, and with God there will always be a future and a hope. The cross always gives way to resurrection. This song was the theme song of the 2006 Convention of the California-Nevada-Hawaii District (of the LCMS)

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.
