A reverent Thanksgiving medley by Jay Althouse. Opening prayerfully with strains of “Now Thank We All Our God,” it segues into a simple, flowing setting of “We Gather Together.” Building in majesty, it offers a glorious verse of “Come, Ye Thankful People, Come” before the opening strains return in reverent praise. Easy to prepare for Christ the King, Harvest, or Thanksgiving.
