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: Psalm 103:2

1 For the beauty of the earth, For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth Over and around us lies:

Christ, our Lord, to you we raise This our sacrifice of praise.

2 For the wonder of each hour Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale and tree and flow'r, Sun and moon and stars of light:

3 For the joy of ear and eye, For the heart and mind's delight,
For the mystic harmony Linking sense to sound and sight:

4 For the joy of human love,Brother, sister, parent, child, 
Friends on earth and friends above; For all gentle thoughts and mild:

5 For yourself, best gift divine To the world so freely giv'n;
Agent of God's grand design, Peace on earth and joy in heav'n:
