This one can be arranged vocally one of four ways. If it's just you solo, you can nod the people in phrase by phrase, or you could wait until the entire response is sung then bring them in on the repeat. If you have enough in an ensemble, schola or choir, you can divide into two groups, the first sing the first phrase, then the second brings in the congregation call/response style. Or everyone can sing the Cantor/Group 1 part, let the "response" part of the call/response be instrumental, then just bring in the people on the repeat of the phrase.

I like the message of this psalm. It's almost as if the psalmist is telling us that we can miss the "saving power of God," if we're not at least trying to be "upright." It's not a given. We can't just la-la our way through life, say we're Christians and expect to see God reveal His perfect will for our lives, according to St. David. "To the UPRIGHT I will show the saving power of God." I say show it to me, Lord! I WILL try to live an upright life!

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.
