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: Lent;    Theme: Praise
Scripture: Matthew 4:1-11

1 The sun beat down upon His head In the wilds where he had been led.
He had been there beneath those rays—Eating no food for forty days.

2 The tempter came to him and said, If you’re His Son then make stones bread.
Man shall not live on bread alone—But on words that come from the throne.

3 Jump from the rooftop without fear God's angels will render their care.
Let My God be forever blest; I shall not put Him to the test.

4 Behold realms of humanity Are yours if you will worship me.
My worship you do not deserve Only God I worship and serve.

5 But I will worship God only And I will serve the King of kings.
Oh, no! This knee will never bend I will adore Him to the end!


Original words sung to the tune of "Christ Is Alive! Let Christians Sing" (LBW 363)
