Old Hymns and New Scenery

We went on an 900 mile roadtrip last week.  We saw so many interesting sights, but the best things of all were the constantly changing, gorgeous landscapes.  So much variety. It seemed that the terrain, flora, and fauna all changed every 25 or 30 miles, each uniquely beautiful in a different way.  One thing each area had in common is the old hymn they invoked me . . . one of my favorites of all times.

Oh Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder

consider all the works thy hands have made . . .
