Hymn of Thanksgiving

This song, which makes me think of the Thankgivings of my New England childhood, is really a Dutch hymn from the 16th century. The above 1597 setting is by Adrianus Valerius, and the tune comes from the once-popular song, "Hey Wilder dan Wild" (Wilder than Wild).

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.
