Good morning, Crestwood friends and family! We invite you to start this Advent season by worshipping with us this morning. God has blessed us in many ways and praising God through worship is just one of the ways we say, "Thank you." God bless you, Crestwood! youtu.be/rFD879IvPj0... See MoreSee Less
Thursday Audio Devotional Now Thank We All Our God G.F. Kauffmann Jane Johnson, organ Listen here: bit.ly/3mf13eB
This hymn has become a song of great thanksgiving to God, so it is fitting to use it for a Thanksgiving Day devotional. The 1636 hymn was originally conceived by Martin Rinkart as a two-stanza table grace. Stanza one is filled with praise and thanksgiving for the gracious love and care of God. Stanza two prays that the God who has provided all the goodness of life will remain close to guide us in this life and the next. Stanza three is a restatement of the Gloria Patri. The hymn is set to the tune Nun Danket by German-born Johann Cruger (1598-1662). Why not sing these words as your Thanksgiving blessing this year?
Now thank we all our God with heart and hands and voices, who wondrous things has done, in whom the world rejoices, who, from our mothers’ arms, has blessed us on our way with countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.
O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us, with ever joyful hearts and blessed peace to cheer us, and keep us full of grace, and guide us when perplexed, and free us from all ills in this world and the next.
All praise and thanks to God our Father and our Mother, to Christ and to the One who binds us to each other, the one eternal God, whom earth and heaven adore, for thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.
MEDITATION O give thanks to the God of heaven, For his steadfast love endures forever. --Psalm 136:26 ... See MoreSee Less
