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: 1 Corinthians 14:33a

1 Dear Lord and Father of mankind Forgive our fev'rish ways;
Reclothe us in our rightful mind, In purer lives thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise.

2 In simple trust like theirs who heard Beside the Syrian sea
The gracious calling of the Lord, Let us, like them, without a word
Rise up and follow thee.

3 Oh, Sabbath rest by Galilee, Oh, calm of hills above,
Where Jesus knelt to share with thee The silence of eternity,
Interpreted by love!

4 Drop thy still dews of quietness, Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress, And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of thy peace.

5 Breathe through the heats of our desire Thy coolness and thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire; Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm!
