Alternate Propers for Thanksgiving

I was doing some research and found the following alternate Introit for Thanksgiving taken from Psalm 136.  This is from the Syriac Lutheran Hymnal (521 AD).

Antiphon: Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,* /for his steadfast love endures forever.

Psalm: to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt,* /for his steadfast love endures forever;

to him who divided the Red Sea in two,* /for his steadfast love endures forever;

and made Israel pass through the midst of it,* /for his steadfast love endures forever;

but overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea,* /for his steadfast love endures forever;

to him who struck down great kings,* /for his steadfast love endures forever;

and killed mighty kings,* /for his steadfast love endures forever;

Sihon, king of the Amorites,* /for his steadfast love endures forever;

and Og, king of Bashan,* /for his steadfast love endures forever;

 If anyone chooses to use this Introit, let me know how it goes…
