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!

1 O Jesus, I have promised To serve you to the end;
Remain forever near me, My master and my friend.
I shall not fear the battle If you are by my side,
Nor wander from the pathway If you will be my guide.

2 Oh, let me feel you near me; The world is ever near.
I see the sights that dazzle, The tempting sounds I hear.
My foes are ever near me, Around me and within;
But, Jesus, then draw nearer To shield my soul from sin.

3 Oh, let me hear you speaking In accents clear and still
Above the storms of passion, The murmurs of self-will.
Now speak to reassure me, To hasten or control;
Now speak and make me listen, O Guardian of my soul.

4 O Jesus, you have promised To all who follow you
That where you are in glory Your servant shall be too.
And Jesus, I have promised To serve you to the end;
Oh, give me grace to follow, My master and my friend.
