NEW AND EXPANDED CONTENT!
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!

Category: Christmas;    Theme: Praise
Scripture: 1 Kings 8:27

1 In the bleak midwinter, Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.

2 Heaven cannot hold him, Nor earth sustain;
Heav'n and earth shall flee away When he comes to reign;
In the bleak midwinter A stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ

3 Angels and archangels May have gathered there,
Cheribum and seraphim Thronged the air;
But his mother only, In her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the Beloved With a kiss.

4 What can I give him, Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a wiseman I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give him - Give my heart.
