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: Comfort
Scripture: Matthew 3:2

1 "Comfort, comfort now my people; Tell of peace!" So says our God.
Comfort those who sit in darkness Mourning under sorrow's load.
To God's people now proclaim That God's pardon waits for them!
Tell them that their war is over; God will reign in peace forever!

2 For the herald's voice is crying In the desert far and near,
Calling us to true repentance, Since the Kingdom now is here.
Oh, that warning cry obey! Now prepare for God away!
Let the valleys rise to meet him, And the hills bow down to greet him!

3 Straight shall be what long was crooked,And the rougher places plain!
Let your hearts be true and humble, As befits his holy reign!
For the glory of the Lord  Now on earth is shed abroad,
And all flesh shall see the token That God's word is never broken.
