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 4:8

1 Sun of my soul! thou Savior dear, 
It is not night if thou be near;
Oh, may no earth-born cloud arise, 
To hide thee from thy servant's eyes.

2 When the soft dews of kindly sleep,
My weary eyelids gently steep,
Be my last thought how sweet to rest
Forever on my Savior's breast!

3 Abide with me from morn till eve,
For without thee I cannot live;
Abide with me when night is nigh,
For without thee I dare not die.

4 If some poor wand'ring child of thine
Have spurned today the voice divine,
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin;
Let him no more lie down in sin.

5 Watch by the sick; enrich the poor
With blessings from thy boundless store;
Be every mourner's sleep tonight,
Like infants' slumbers, pure and light. 

6 Come near and bless us when we wake, 
Ere through the world our way we take,
Till in the ocean of thy love 
We lose ourselves in heaven above.
