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: Invocation;    Theme: Trinity

1 Lord Jesus Christ, be present now, Our hearts in true devotion bow,
Thy Spirit send with light divine, And let thy truth within us shine.

2 Unseal our lips to sing thy praise, Our souls to thee in worship raise,
Our faith increase, our minds enlight, That we may know thy name aright.

3 Until we join the hosts that cry, "Thou holy art, O Lord Most High!"
And 'mid the light of that blest place Shall gaze upon thee face to face.

4 All glory to the Father, Son, And Holy Spirit, Three in One!
To thee, O blessed Trinity, Be praise throughout eternity!
