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: Luke 5:32

1 Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling, Calling for you and for me; 
Patiently Jesus is waiting and watching, Watching for you and for me. 

Refrain:
Come home, come home, Ye who are weary, come home; 
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling, Calling, O sinner, come home! 

2 Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading, Pleading for you and for me? 
Why should we linger and heed not his mercies, Mercies for you and for me? [Refrain]

3 Oh, for the wonderful love he has promised, Promised for you and for me;
Though we have sinned, he has mercy and pardon, Pardon for you and for me. [Refrain]
