Sola Online Worship eResource

We have re-organized and expanded our SOWeR hymns and music page, not only making it more searchable but also adding much more information for our subscribers. Each hymn on our site now has its own web page,with text-only lyrics for use in bulletins and overhead projection, downloadable image files with words and music, lead sheets with guitar chords, as well as pdf files of full hymn scores from the ReClaim Hymnal.

This is a work in progress; it will take some time to complete all of the hymns. Be sure to check back as our online repertoire of music keeps growing!

Scripture: Matthew 1:21

1 What child is this, who laid to rest, 
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet 
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King, 
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste, to bring him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary.

2 Why lies he is such mean estate 
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear; for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.
Nails, spear shall pierce him through, 
The cross he borne for me, for you;
Hail, hail the word made flesh,
The babe, the son of Mary!

3 So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh;  
Come peasant, king, to own him.
The King of kings salvation brings; 
Let loving hearts enthrone him.
Raise, raise the song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby;
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The babe, the son of Mary.
