Quote from: Charles_Austin on March 06, 2011, 09:53:01 AMBrother Boris writes:Here's a 19th century hymn from Finland sung by a lovely soprano accompanied by a reed organ. I love the tenderness and passion with which she sings. Perhaps a Finnish Lutheran could translate it for us?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xf3VctNP3kI comment:Don't know the Finnish words, but the tune is "Day by Day," a fine old Swedish hymn "Blott en Dag," now happily in ELW as #790. It would be one of my top ten favorite hymns, if I had to prepare such a list. Before the hymn was included in "With One Voice," an elderly Swede in my parish and I did a translation that we used for several years.
Quote from: BrotherBoris on March 06, 2011, 01:41:01 PMThe TUNE is in the SBH, number 225 (second tune). I don't know of a translation of the text off the top of my head. You might try the old American Lutheran Hymnal of 1930. If I recall correctly, it was a rather Germanic hymnal. It might have it. You could also do a search of Catherine Winkworth's hymn translations. You might find it there.[/quoteWow. Thanks, Boris. Good find. I had no idea. So the tune has both a morning and evening version. Nice.Actually the tune is also in the old MS German hymnal, das Kirchen=Gesanguch fuer Ev.=Luth. Gemeinden UAC, number 477, but with text by Gottfried Hoffmann.

Here is the Lutheran Church of Saints Peter and Mary in Berlin:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAarft1Wq50Does anyone know of any Lutheran hymnal in the US which contains this wonderful morning hymn? Tune is by Johannes Crueger. Text by Paul Gerhardt.It is very popular in Germany in both evangelische and RC congregations. It is not in TLH, SBH, LBW, LSB, or ELW. I believe Catherine Winkworth did a translation, oh, so long ago.Here is another version of the hymn from the same church in Berlin. It includes the introduction and procession. It is always amusing to see a German congregation sit down to sing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrDxHBB35Bo&feature=related
