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!

Scripture: Galatians 3:13

1 Ah, holy Jesus, how hast thou offended 
That man to judge thee hath in hate pretended? 
By foes derided, by thine own rejected, O most afflicted. 

2 Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon thee? 
Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone thee.
'Twas I, Lord Jesus, I it was denied thee; I crucified thee. 

3 Lo, the Good Shepherd for the sheep is offered; 
The slave hath sinned, and the Son hath suffered; 
For man's atonement, while he nothing heedeth, God intercedeth. 

4 For me, kind Jesus, was thine incarnation, 
Thy mortal sorrow, and thy life's oblation; 
Thy death of anguish and thy bitter Passion, For my salvation. 

5 Therefore, kind Jesus, since I cannot pay thee, 
I do adore thee, and will ever pray thee; 
Think on thy pity and thy love unswerving, Not my deserving.
