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!

Text: Cathy Ammlung
Music: (Hymn Tune)
Tune: Picardy
Category: Psalm;    Theme: Prayer
Scripture: Psalm 141

1. Lord, as incense rises before Thee,
so my voice in prayer shall ascend.
Hear me when I cry: come Thou quickly;
graciously to me descend.
Lift my hands to give 
the sacrifice of praise.
Look with mercy on my ways.

2. Set as sentinel Thy Spirit
at my lips and mouth and heart.
Guard and guide me; by Thy merit 
cause all evil to depart.
From my words and thoughts,
my actions and my life,
purify and save me from strife.

3. Turn my heart to Thee, holy Father,
turn my eyes to Thy holy Son.
Turn my life, by Thy Holy Spirit
to the victory Christ has won:
To the refuge sure, which
given by his grace,
keeps me ever in Thy embrace.

This hymn paraphrase is sung to the tune of Picardy.
It can be used in any Season of the Church Year.
