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: Luke 2:14

1 It came upon the midnight clear, That glorious song of old, 
From angels bending near the earth To touch their harps of gold: 
"Peace on the earth, good will to men, From heaven's all-gracious king." 
The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the angels sing. 

2 Still through the cloven skies they come With peaceful wings unfurled, 
And still their heavenly music floats O'er all the weary world; 
Above its sad and lowly plains, They bend on hovering wing, 
And ever o'er its Babel sounds The blessed angels sing. 

3 And ye, beneath life's crushing load, Whose forms are bending low, 
Who toil along the climbing way With painful steps and slow: 
Look now, for glad and golden hours Come swiftly on the wing; 
O rest beside the weary road, And hear the angels sing! 

4 For lo! the days are hastening on, By prophet seen of old, 
When with the ever-circling years Shall come the time foretold, 
When peace shall over all the earth Its ancient splendors fling, 
And the whole world send back the song Which now the angels sing.
