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: Acts 4:12

1 How sweet the name of Jesus sounds In a believer's ear!
It soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds,  And drives away all fear.

2 It makes the wounded spirit whole  And calms the hear's unrest;
'Tis manna to the hungry soul And to the weary, rest.

3 Dear name! The rock on which I build, My shield and hiding place; 
My never-failing treasury, filled With boundless stores of grace.

4 By thee my prayers acceptance gain Although with sin defiled.
The devil charges me in vain, And I am owned a child.

5 O Jesus, shepherd, guardian, friend, My Prophet, Priest, and King,
My Lord, my life, my way, my end, Accept the praise I bring.

6 How weak the effort of my heart, How cold my warmest thought;
But when I see thee as thou art, I'll praise thee as I ought.

7 Till then I would thy love proclaim With every fleeting breath;
And may the music of thy name Refresh my soul in death!
