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: Revelation 21:2

1 Jerusalem the golden, With milk and honey blest,
Beneath your contemplation Sink heart and voice oppressed.
I know not, oh, I know not, What social joys are there,
What radiancy of glory, What bliss beyond compare.

2 They stand, those halls of Zion, Conjubilant with song
And bright with many an angel And all the martyr throng.
The prince is ever in them; The day light is serene;
The pastures of the blessed Are decked in glorious sheen.

3 There is the throne of David, And there, from care released,
The shout of those who triumph, The song of those who feast.
And they, who with their leader Have conquered in the fight,
Forever and forever are clad in robes of white.

4 Oh, sweet and blessed country, The home of God's elect!
Oh, sweet and blessed country, That eager hearts expect!
In mercy, Jesus, bring us To that dear land of rest!
You are, with God the Father And Spirit, ever blest.
