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: Psalm 23:1

1 The King of love my shepherd is, Whose goodness faileth never;
I nothing lack if I am his And he is mine forever.

2 Where streams of living water flow, My ransomed soul he leadeth;
And, where the verdant pastures grow, With food celestial feedeth.

3 Perverse and foolish oft I strayed, But yet in love he sought me, 
And on his shoulder gently laid, And home, rejoicing, brought me.

4 In death's dark vale I fear no ill, With thee, dear Lord, beside me,
Thy rod and staff my comfort still; Thy cross before to guide me.

5 Thou spreadst a table in my sight; Thine unction grace bestoweth; 
And, oh, what transport of delight From thy pure chalice floweth!

6 And so, through all the length of days, Thy goodness faileth never. 
Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise Within thy house forever.
