On Calvin's 500th birthday, five years ago, I put together some wonderful quotes from him--well, sometimes paraphrased--by which he extolled the sheer beauty of nature. Calvin thought that each of us come to know our fallenness when we experience the glories of natural world around us; then we know we aren't God. I threw in some Siouxland landscapes, and underlined the whole works with the Dordt College Concert Choir.
Someone asked, lately, if I could cut it up--it was about ten-minutes long. Today, I did--three, three-minute chunks. Thought I'd pass one along, one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever created, IMHO. "O Lord God," all by its lonesome, is a month of Sundays. Calvin's lines are just as gorgeous, just a remarkable.
