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!

1 Jesus, I long for your blessed communion,
Yearning possesses my heart and my mind.
Break down all barriers that hinder our union, 
Draw me to you, O Redeemer most kind!
Show me now clearly my need that is crying,
Show me the pain of the wrongs that I do.
That unto sin I may daily be dying
And in the Spirit live only for you.

2 Quicken my soul thro' your blood and your merit,
Send me your spirit and help me to prove
I am your captive in soul and in spirit;
Lead me and draw me to you with your love.
Come let my heart from all idols be severed,
So that you only can dwell in my soul.
Grant me your peace that continues forever,
Peace beyond all I can fathom or know.

3 Jesus, when shall I find rest in your haven?
Take up my burden, Lord lift it from me!
When shall I see you, my Savior in heaven?
Waken and quiet the wild, troubled sea!
O loving Jesus, come help me, be speedy;
Hide not your face from me, always be near.
You are the wealth of the inwardly needy.
Come, fill my heart with your mercy and cheer.

4 Merciful Jesus, I pray, hear my pleading;
Do not forget what you said in your word,
"Ask and receive; you will find when you seek me."
This you have said and your people have heard.
I, like the woman at Cana, keep pleading,
Crying to you till my longing is stilled.
And you have spoken with grace to my needing,
"Amen, yes, Amen: be done as you will!"
