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!

Category: General;    Theme: Witness
Scripture: 1 John 4:14

1 I love to tell the story Of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and his glory, Of Jesus and his love.
I love to tell the story, Because I know it's true;
It satisfies my longings As nothing else could do.

I love to tell the story; I'll sing this theme in glory
And tell the old, old story Of Jesus and his love.

3 I love to tell the story; How pleasant to repeat
What seems, each time I tell it, More wonderfully sweet!
I love to tell the story, For some have never heard
The message of salvation From God's own holy Word. [Refrain]

4 I love to tell the story; For those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting To hear it like the rest.
And when in scenes of glory I sing the new, new song,
I'll sing the old, old story That I have loved so long. [Refrain]
