Avalon Sunset is the nineteenth studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison.

The album opens with "Whenever God Shines His Light", issued as a successful single that charted at No. 20 in the UK and was a duet with Cliff Richard. The album contains the religious ballad "Have I Told You Lately", which became a hit single for Morrison, reaching #12 on the Adult Contemporary Charts and was a bigger hit for Rod Stewart in 1993. This song was included on Morrison's 2007 album, Van Morrison at the Movies – Soundtrack Hits.[citation needed] Brian Hinton compares the idyllic female in "Orangefield" to Beatrice in the Divine Comedy.

Phil Keaggy covered "When Will I Ever Learn to Live in God" on his 1993 album Crimson and Blue.

On Avalon Sunset, Rob Sheffield wrote, Morrison sang about God and love in a scat-influenced style, set against a musical backdrop of mellow folk rock. According to Donald Clarke, the album combined "religiosity and Celtic feeling, a sort of superior New Age music".
