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 I know of a sleep in Jesus' name, 
A rest from all toil and sorrow;
Earth folds in her arms my weary frame 
And shelters it till the morrow.
My soul is at home with God in heav'n,  
Her sorrows are past and over.

2 I know of a peaceful eventide;
And when I am faint and weary,
At times with the journey sorely tried,
Through hours that are long and dreary,
Then often I yearn to lay me down
And sink into blissful slumber.

3 I know of a morning bright and fair
When tidings of joy shall wake us,
When songs from on high shall fill the air
And God to his glory take us,
When Jesus shall bid us rise from sleep--
How joyous that hour of waking!

4 Now opens the Father's house above,
The names of the blest are given:
Lord, gather us there; let none we love
Be missed in the joys of heaven.
Vouchsafe thou us all a place with thee;
We ask through our dear Redeemer.

7 O Jesus, draw near my dying bed
And take me into thy keeping
And say when my spirit hence is fled,
"This child is not dead, but sleeping."
And leave me not, Savior, till I rise
To praise thee in life eternal.
