A Hymn of Joyous Thanksgiving

November 26th, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

First off, a happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

I think it’s appropriate to share with you the following setting of the “Te Deum,” what with it still being “Everything English Month.” It was written by Handel after a stunning English victory over the French forces in Bavaria, at a town called “Dettingen.” The king of England, George II, commissioned the piece to capture the true majesty of England and to render thanksgiving where it was due – God. This setting is in English, and starts with the words, “We praise Thee O God.”

One again, enjoy the holiday!

    Happy thanksgiving to all! Today is a perfect time to thank the Lord for life, faith, family, and all the blessings he has bestowed upon us.

    Be safe tomorrow if you will be shopping. I don't want to hear of anyone getting trampled to death like what happened at a Walmart last year.

    God bless.
