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: 1 Peter 1:3

1 Come, you faithful, raise the strain Of triumphant gladness!
God has brought his Israel Into joy from sadness,
Loosed from Pharaoh’s bitter yoke Jacob’s sons and daughters,
Led them with unmoistened foot Through the Red Sea waters.

2 ’Tis the spring of souls today: Christ has burst his prison,
And from three days’ sleep in death As a sun has risen;
All the winter of our sins, Long and dark, is flying
From the light, to whom is giv'n Laud and praise undying.

3 Now the queen of seasons bright With the day of splendor,
With the royal feast of feasts Comes its joy to render;
Comes to gladden faithful hearts Which with true affection
Welcome in unwearied strain Jesus resurrection!

4 For today among the twelve Christ appeared, bestowing
His deep peace, which evermore Passes human knowing
Neither could the gates of death, Nor the tomb's dark portal,
Nor the watchers, nor the seal, Hold him as a mortal.

5 Alleluia! Now we cry To our King immortal,
Who, triumphant, burst the bars Of the tomb’s dark portal.
Come you faithful, raise the strain Of triumphant gladness!
God has brought his Israel Into joy from sadness!
