So What Thanksgiving Hymns
will you all be singing tomorrow evening or on Thanksgiving Day? Here at St. Paul's Matins on Thursday morning will open with "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come." The Office Hymn for Matins will be "We Praise You, O God, our Redeemer Creator." The Canticle will be the lovely Starke Te Deum: "We Praise You and Acknowledge You." Our final hymn will be "Now Thank We." Additionally, the Choir will sing "O Christ the Same" and the Bells will play "With Thankful Hearts." Carlo will treat us to the Grave and Adagio Movements from Felix Mendelssohn-Barthodly Sonata II, and with Nicolaus Jacques Lemmen's Fanfare. I'm so very much looking forward to the service!
