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 Grace and Justice); 9) Seht Irh’r Leuchten (Do You See it Shine); 10) Wo’s Noch Dunkel Heite (Where it Is Still Dark Today).
