this our joyful hymn

Not a traditional Thanksgiving pic….sorry, no turkeys in my files

Getting into the Thanksgiving spirit.  Thought I’d share this heavenly tune with you.  The words are from the traditional hymn, For the Beauty of the Earth.  The old lyrics were set to a new tune composed by famed English composer, John Rutter.  This is a perfect fusion of lyric and melody, in my humble opinion.  I’ve sung this many times in various choirs.  It never fails to make my spirit soar.  I’ve yet to get through it without tearing up.

Simple aural loveliness.  Hope it inspires your thankful spirit.

Remember to thaw the turkey in the fridge.  It may take a couple of days.
Giblet gravy love to all.

  1. I loved that photo even before I'd scrolled down to see the whole thing. Those wings look like they're made out of soap bubble!And after writing that I scroll down here and see my captcha – wingra.
