Everytime this responsorial comes up in the cycle I can't help but think of Fr. Marty Demek. He was the first priest I ever worked for as a liturgical musician, and I learned so much under his tutelage. Many times in his homilies he would refer to the Lord as "Our God." That's always stuck with me. It shows that we're all in this together and that we all, besides being connected as humans, have one God in common as well.

So when it came time to set this one to music, I switched "The Lord" to "Our God". Not only do I like the implications of that phrasing as I said, but also musically it sounded better with that descending scale melody line. So thanks, Fr. Marty!

Remember the $1 entitles you to make up to 14 extra copies on your own if you so need.

God bless, and don't forget: "Our God is near to all who call upon Him!"

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.
