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 Lift up your heads ye mighty gates, 
Behold the King of glory waits!
The King of kings is drawing near, 
The Savior of the world is here.

2 O blest the land, the city blest, 
Where Christ the ruler is confessed!
O happy hearts and happy homes 
To whom this King in triumph comes!

3 Fling wide the portals of your heart, 
Make it a temple set apart
From earthly use for heav'n's employ, 
Adorned with prayer and love and joy.

4 Redeemer, come! with us abide; 
Our hearts to thee we open wide,
Let us thy inner presence feel, 
Thy grace and love in us reveal.
