Photography: Sunset

A week or two ago I grabbed my camera to take some shots of the awesome sunset happening behind our house. It’s amazing how quickly the colors and cloud formations change during sunsets. When I was looking at them a bit ago, I immediately thought of the hymn, How Great Thou Art. One of my favorites.

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: “My God, how great Thou art!”

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!



  1. Em- this is absolutely breathtaking.
    Hope you don’t mind- I shared with a link.
    I love seeing the overwhelming proof of God in the world around me.
    How Great He is.

  2. Lovely post and photos. Thanks for including the 2nd verse – so many don’t.
