Sola Online Worship eResource

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 O Christ, our hope, our hearts' desire, Creation's mighty Lord,
Redeemer of the fallen world,
By holy love outpoured, By holy love outpoured:

2 How vast your mercy to accept The burden of our sin,
And bow your head in cruel death
To make us clean within, To make us clean within.

3 But now the bonds of death are burst, The ransom has been paid;
You now ascend the Father's throne
In robes of light arrayed, In robes of light arrayed.

4 Oh, let your mighty love prevail To purge us of our pride,
That we may stand before your throne
By mercy purified, By mercy purified.

5 Christ Jesus, be our present joy, Our future great reward;
Our only glory, may it be
To glory in the Lord! To glory in the Lord! 

6 All praise to you, ascended Lord; All glory ever be
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Through all eternity! Through all eternity!
