This morning I'm sharing a verse from a favorite old hymn, "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee" by Henry Van Dyke, along with a few of my photos.

I hope you have a beautiful day!


All your works with joy surround Thee,

Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,

Stars and angels sing around Thee,

Center of unbroken praise.


Field and forest, vale and mountain,

Flowery meadow, flashing sea, 



Chanting bird and flowing fountain, 

Call us to rejoice in Thee.




*Words by Henry Van Dyke 1907, while he was a  Professor of English Literature at Princeton University.
