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 149:2

1 Glorious things of thee are spoken, Zion, city of our God;
He, whose word cannot be broken, Formed thee for his own abode.
On the Rock of Ages founded, What can shake thy sure repose?
With salvation's walls surrounded, Thou may'st smile at all thy foes.

2 See the streams of living waters, Springing from eternal love,
Well supply thy sons and daughters, And all fear of want remove.
Who can faint while such a river Ever flows their thirst to assuage,
Grace,which, like the Lord, the giver, Never fails from age to age?

3 Round each habitation hov'ring, See the cloud and fire appear
For a glory and a cov'ring, Showing that the Lord is near;
Thus deriving from their banner Light by night and shade by day,
Safe they feed upon the manna Which he gives them when they pray.

4 Savior, if of Zion's city I, through grace, a member am,
Let the world deride or pity, I will glory in thy Name.
Fading is the worldlings' pleasure, All his boasted pomp and show;
Solid joys and lasting treasure None but Zion's children know.
