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!

When Jesus Came from Galilee

Sola Original

Text: Mark Ryman
Music: Hugh Wilson
Tune: Martyrdom
LBW/WOV Hymn: #n/a
ReClaim/Sola Hymn: #orig
Category: Epiphany;    Theme: Discipleship
Scripture: Matthew 3:13-17

1 When Jesus came from Galilee To John at the Jordan
John pled, not you; Lord, baptize me; You are recreation.

2 You are the One who came before I ever had been wrought.
So baptize me, Oh, Lord of yore, He said without more thought.

3 But Jesus said, we do this thing To fulfill righteousness.
When John saw in this God's doing, Then he did acquiesce.

4 Then when the Lord had been baptized He came up straight away.
And just then as good John surmised, Heaven beamed God's wide ray.

5 The Spirit of Almighty God Then settled on the One
With dovelike grace and booming voice: "This is My beloved Son."

6 Sometimes we think we know more than The One who made us all.
We must respond to God—not man— Whatever else may befall.

Original words sung to the tune of "Alas and Did My Savior Bleed" (LBW 98)
Based on the Gospel Reading for Epiphany 1A
