God, Whose Giving Knows No Ending
for SATB chorus with assembly, optional children's chorus, organ, and handbells
text by Robert L. Edwards
music by ZMH
An original tune (NOKOMIS) for this text that celebrates God's abundant blessings and calls us to responsible stewardship of our time, talents, and relationships. The children's chorus part, which can also be sung by the adult choir sopranos, quotes a fragment of Now Thank We All Our God/NUN DANKET ALLE GOTT. Appropriate for the fall festivals or services that highlight themes of thanksgiving and/or stewardship.
Commissioned by Lake Nokomis Lutheran Church (Minneapolis, MN) in celebration of its 100th anniversary, All Saints Sunday 2012.
