A very grand treatment of the familiar Lutheran hymn of thanksgiving. Themes derived from the Chorale are played on the Brustwerk and Pedal, followed
by the sounding of the Chorale on the Hauptwerk Trumpet.
Schantz/Rodgers, (1966/2000) at First Baptist Church of Riverside, California recorded by Jonathan Orwig

- Chorale Text
Nun danket alle Gott
mit Herzen, Mund und Händen,
der grosse Dinge tut
an uns und allen Enden;
der uns von Mutterleib und Kindesbeinen an
unzählig viel zugut,
und noch jetzund getan!
--Martin Rinkert, 1636
Now thank we all our God
With heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done
In whom His world rejoices.
Who from our mother's arms
Hath bless'd us on our way
With countless gifts of love,
And still is ours today.
--Catherine Winkworth, 1858
