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 73:28

1 Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee, 
E'en though it be a cross That raiseth me, 
Still all my song shall be, Nearer, my God, to thee, 
Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee.

2 Though like the wanderer, The sun gone down, 
Darkness be over me, My rest a stone, 
Yet in my dreams I'd be Nearer, my God, to thee, 
Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee. 

3 Then let my way appear Steps unto heav'n; 
All that thou sendest me In mercy giv'n; 
Angels to beckon me Nearer, my God, to thee, 
Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee. 

4 Then with my waking thoughts, Bright with thy praise, 
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I'll raise; 
So by my woes to be Nearer, my God, to thee, 
Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee.

5 Or if, on joyful wing Cleaving the sky, 
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, Upward I fly: 
Still all my song shall be, Nearer, my God, to thee; 
Nearer, my God, to thee, Nearer to thee.
