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!

Category: Evening;    Theme: Praise

1 Now the day is over; Night is drawing nigh;
Shadows of the evening Steal across the sky.

2 Jesus, give the weary Calm and sweet repose;
With your tend'rest blessing May our eyelids close.

3 Comfort ev'ry suff'rer Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil, From their sin restrain

4 Through the long night watches May your angels spread
Their bright wings above me, Watching round my bed.

5 When the morning wakens, Then may I arise
Pure and fresh and sinless In your holy eyes.

6 Glory to the Father, Glory to the Son,
And to you, blest Spirit, While the ages run.
