Hymn to Aton

Journey Within

Akhnaton, a great mystic and pharaoh who ruled Egypt in the mid-14th century BC, wrote this beautiful poem, Hymn to Aton, in homage to the Sun. For Akhnaton (known as Amenhotep IV before he changed his name), the Sun (Aton) symbolized the sole deity who gives light and joy to all creation.

Text by Akhnaton. Narration, music, paintings, photography, and video by Anne Nordhaus-Bike.

Glorious Sunrise oil painting featured in this video available as posters and cards.

Several of the flower photographs featured in this video are available as fine art reproductions and greeting cards through our online fine art store.

Journey Within’s haunting arrangement consists of variations on a 17th century French melody called Picardy, which later was used in the hymn Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent. Let this music draw you in to enter the gate of your heart. Let the paintings help you make the journey within.

Music created and produced by Anne Nordhaus-Bike. Paintings by Anne Nordhaus-Bike: Sophie's Rose, oil on canvas; Layered Heart, watercolor on paper. Layered Heart painting in this video available as posters and cards.

Sonnet 73

This beautiful sonnet by Shakespeare reminds us how fleeting life is, even if we live to old age. From life's late autumn, just before reaching winter and death, the poet looks back at years of living and urges us to "love that well which thou must leave e'er long."

Narration, photographs, and video by Anne Nordhaus-Bike. Sound and video created and produced at ANB Communications, Chicago.
