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 Peter 2:24

1 Christ the life of all the living, Christ, the death of death our foe.
Christ, yourself for me once giving To the darkest depths of woe:
Through your suffering, death, and merit Life eternal I inherit.
Thousand, thousand thanks are due, Dearest Jesus, unto you.

2 You have suffered great affliction And have borne it patiently,
Even death by crucifixion: Fully to atone for me;
For you chose to be tormented That my doom should be prevented.
Thousand, thousand thanks are due, Dearest Jesus, unto you.

3 Then, for all that bought my pardon, For the sorrows deep and sore.
For the anguish in the garden, I will thank you evermore;
Thank you for the groaning, sighing, For the bleeding and the dying,
For that last triumphant cry, Praise you evermore on high.
