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 In heav'n above, in heav'n above, Where God our Father dwells;
How boundless there the blessedness! No tongue its greatness tells.
There face to face, and full and free, 
The ever-living God we see, Our God, the Lord of hosts!

2 In heav'n above, in heav'n above, What glory deep and bright!
The splendor of the noonday sun Grows pale before its light.
The mighty sun that goes not down,
Before whose face clouds never frown, Is God, the Lord of hosts!

3 In heav'n above, in heav'n above, No tears of pain are shed,
For nothing there can fade or die; Life's fullness round is spread,
And like an ocean, joy o'erflows,
And with im-mortal mercy glows, Our God, the Lord of hosts!

4 In heav'n above, in heav'n above, God has a joy prepared,
Which mortal ear has never heard, Nor mortal vision shared,
Which never entered mortal thought,
In mortal dreams was never sought, O God, the Lord of hosts!
