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!

1 Dearest Jesus, we are here, Gladly your command obeying.
With this child we now draw near In response to your own saying
That to you it shall be given As a child and heir of heaven.

2 Your command is clear and plain, And we would obey it duly:
"You must all be born again, Heart and life renewing truly,
Born of water and the Spirit, And my kingdom thus inherit."

3 This is why we come to you, In our arms this infant bearing;
Lord to us your glory show; Let this child, your mercy sharing,
In your arms be shielded ever, Yours on earth and yours forever.

4 Gracious head, your member own; Shepherd, take your lamb and feed it;
Prince of Peace, make here your throne; Way of life, to heaven lead it;
Precious vine, let nothing sever From your side this branch forever.

5 Now into your heart we pour Prayers that from our hearts proceeded.
Our petitions heav'nward soar; May our fond desires be heeded!
Write the name we now have given; Write it in the book of heaven!
