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!

1 Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm has bound the restless wave,
Who bade the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep:
Oh, hear us when we cry to thee
For those in peril on the sea.

2 O Savior, whose almighty word
The winds and waves submissive heard,
Who walked upon the foaming deep, 
And calm amid the storm didst sleep:
Oh, hear us when we cry to thee
For those in peril on the sea.

3 O Holy Spirit, who didst brood 
Upon the chaos dark and rude,
And bid its angry tumult cease, 
And give, for wild confusion, peace:
Oh, hear us when we cry to thee
For those in peril on the sea.

4 O Trinity of love and pow'r, 
All trav'lers guard in danger's hour
From rock and tempest, fire and foe, 
Protect them wheresoe'er they go;
Thus evermore shall rise to thee 
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
