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 O Jesus, joy of loving hearts, The fount of life, the light of all:
From ev'ry bliss that earth imparts We turn, unfilled, to hear your call.

2 Your truth unchanged has ever stood; You plead with all to call on you;
To those who seek you, you are good; To those who find you, life is new.

3 We taste you, everliving bread,  And long to feast upon you still;
We drink of you, the fountainhead; Our thirsting souls from you we fill.

4 For you our restless spirits yearn, Where'er our changing lot is cast;
Glad, when your smile on us you turn, Blest, when by faith we hold you fast.
