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!

Category: Advent;    Theme: Repentance
Scripture: Matthew 3:1-12

1 Long ago in another way, Isaiah preached salvation.
Heaven comes near for all today Who turn to Christ’s liberation.

2 A wild man came crying, “Repent.” He called his home the wilderness.
Prepare the way of Him God sent. Make straight the path of all ages.

3 People came out to wash away The filth of their acknowledged sins.
He is nearer than you can say Who will cleanse of all transgressions.

4 Produce the fruits of repentance; Religion cannot bear you up.
God will pass down His high sentence In keeping with a faithless crop.

5 John’s baptism was of water; Christ christens with Spirit and fire.
He is the way to His Father; For those souls who truly aspire.


Original words sung to the tune of "I Know that My Redeemer Lives"; Hymn 352 LBW. Advent 2A
