Congregational Church Presents "So Nimm denn Meine Hände"
A Production of the German Singers, Salem Congregational
Church German Choir, Scottsbluff, Nebraska, 2006, CD
The Germans from Russia Heritage Collection is pleased to provide
this CD and music of the German Choir of Salem Congregational Church
of Scottsbluff in western Nebraska.
This is the third music project of the German Singers. As stated
in the first project, the desire of the German Choir is to preserve
for future generations a little of the culture of the Germans from
Russia who settled in America in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
This CD is designed to accompany the sing along book of the same
title. The CD is created to honor the memory of the members who
sange these prayer meeting songs at brotherhood meetings.
The title song of this CD is "So Nimm denn Meine Hände"
written by Julie K. von Husmann, daughter of a gymnasium teacher.
Julie worked for a while as a governess, but eventually cared full
time for her father, who had gone blind. After his death in 1964,
she lived with sisters in Germany, France, and Switzerland, and later
with relatives in Eastonia. The music to "So Nimm den Meine
Hande" was written by Fredrich Silcher.
The German Singers perform the following songs: 1) So Nimm Denn
Meine Hände (Take Thou My Hand and Lead Me); 2) Ich Bin Erlöst
Durch Des Lammes Blut (I Am Saved Thru the Blood of the Lamb); 3)
Lässt Die Herzen Immer Frohlich (Let Your Hearts Always Be
Happy); 4) An Jesu Hand Lässt (Draw Near The Hand Of Jesus);
5) Ruh’ Ist Beim Kreuz (Peace Is At The Cross); 6) Von Meinen
Heiland Erzähl Ich Gern (I Like to Tell of My Savior); 7) Komm
Zu Dem Heiland (Come to the Savior); 8) Von Gnade Und Recht (Of
