Photography and Faith Part III

O For a Closer Walk With God, a hymn from the Episcopal hymnal, had me again reflecting on photography and faith.  Written by William Cowper (1731 - 1800) with music from Caithness, 1635 and The English Hymnal,1906, it had me visualizing a post immediately.

"O for a closer walk with God, a calm and
 heavenly frame, a light to shine upon the
 road that leads me to the Lamb!"    

"Return, O holy Dove, return,
 sweet messenger of rest; I hate
 the sins that made thee mourn, and
drove thee from my breast."  

"So shall my walk be close
 with God, calm and serene my
 frame; so purer light shall mark
 the road that leads me to the lamb."
