Fourteen stanzas! A common question might be, "How many can we omit?" But Martin Luther's delightful text begs to be sung in its entirety, and here is one way to do it without over-taxing the congregation. Each stanza is set in a manner designed to express its own mood. Stanzas may be spread throughout a service or sung all together as a kind of "mini-cantata" for the day. Reproducible congregational page included.
Voicing: SATB, Congregation
