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 23:1

1 What a fellowship, what a joy divine, 
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
What a blessedness, what a peace is mine, 
Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning, Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning, Leaning on the everlasting arms.

2 Oh, how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, 
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
Oh, how bright the path grows from day to day, 
Leaning on the everlasting arms. (refrain)

3 What have I to dread, what have I to fear, 
Leaning on the everlasting arms?
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, 
Leaning on the everlasting arms. (refrain)
