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: Matthew 5:1-12

1 Jesus went up on the mountain—Students gath’ring all around.
As they waited for His wisdom, Jesus began to expound:

2 Blessed are the poor in spirit; Theirs is the kingdom of Him
Who blesses the ones who mourn by Comforting when life is grim.

3 Blessed are the gentle spirits; They shall inherit the earth—
Not those warring, errant creatures, Contesting their spirit's dearth.

4 Hungry? Thirsty? What will fill you? Only God's own righteousness!
He will satisfy the needy Who have hoped in God to trust.

5 Blessed are the kind and gracious; God’s own mercy they will laud.
Blessed are those who wage peace for They are called the Sons of God.

6 Persecuted for righteousness? Heaven is given to you!
Insults, lies, and accusations? Trust in God to see you through.

7 Rejoice, Friends, and be delighted; Your reward in heav’n is great!
This is how life treated prophets Who with you will pass God’s gate.


Original words sung to the tune of "All for Jesus"
