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!

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 1:5

1 Alas! And did my Savior bleed, And did my sov'reign die?
Would he devote that sacred head For sinners such as I? 

2 Was it for sins that I had done, He groaned upon the tree? 
Amazing pity, grace unknown, And love beyond degree! 

3 Well might the sun in darkness hide And shut its glories in
When God, the mighty maker, died For his own creature's sin. 

4 Thus might I hide my blushing face While his dear cross appears, 
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness, And melt my eyes to tears. 

5 But tears of grief I can't repay The debt of love I owe;
Here, Lord, I give myself away; It's all that I can do.
