Sola Online Worship eResource

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: John 1:14

1 Lo, how a rose e'er blooming From tender stem hath sprung!
Of Jesse's lineage coming As men of old have sung.
It came, a floweret bright,
Amid the cold of winter, When half spent was the night.

2 Isaiah 'twas foretold it, The rose I have in mind,
With Mary we behold it, The Virgin Mother kind.
To show God's love aright,
She bore to men a Savior, When half spent was the night.

3 This flow'r, whose fragrance tender With sweetness fills the air,
Dispels with glorious splendor The darkness everywhere.
True man, yet very God,
From sin and death he saves us And lightens ev'ry load.

4 O Savior, child of Mary, Who felt our human woe;
O Savior, king of glory, Who dost our weakness know,
Bring us at length we pray
To the bright courts of heaven, And to the endless day.
