‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty’

This was one of my mother’s favorite hymns, Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, sung here by the Altar of Praise Men’s Chorale. It was written in the 1600s by Pastor Joachim Neander–for whom the Neanderthal Valley, in Germany is named: and for whom, indirectly, Neanderthal Man is named.

Why are these beautiful pictures shown with so many of the hymns? Because they are pictures of God’s handiwork–hymns sung to God by His Creation itself.
