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: Ephesians 1:7

1 There's a wideness in God's mercy
Like the wideness of the sea;
There's a kindness in God's justice
Which is more than liberty.
There is no place where earth's sorrows
Are more felt than up in heaven.
There is no place where earth's failings
Have such kindly judgment given.

2  There is welcome for the sinner, 
And a promised grace made good;
There is mercy in the Savior; 
There is healing in his blood.
There is grace enough for thousands 
Of new worlds as great as this; 
There is room for fresh creations
In that upper home of bliss.

3 For the love of God is broader
Than the measures of our mind.
And the heart of the eternal
Is most wonderfully kind.
There is plentiful redemption
In the blood that has been shed; 
There is joy for all the members
In the sorrows of the head. 

4 'Tis not all we owe to Jesus; 
It is something more than all:
Greater good because of evil, 
Larger mercy through the fall.
If our love were but more simple,
We should take him at his Word,
And our lives would be all sunshine
In the sweetness of our Lord.
