Descriptive data for this set (listed below slide images)
Slide 1
Intro. with Title
Slide 2
Seated one day at the organ, I was weary and ill at ease
Slide 3
But I struck one chord of music, like the sound of a great Amen
Slide 4
It flooded the crimson twilight, like the close of an angel psalm
Slide 5
It quieted pain and sorrow, like love o'er-coming strife
Slide 6
It seem'd the harmonious echo from our discordant life
Slide 7**
And trembled away in silence, as if it were loth to cease
Slide 8
I have sought, but I seek it vainly, that one lost chord divine
Slide 9
It may be that Death's bright angel will speak in that chord again
Slide 10
It may be that only in Heaven I shall hear that grand Amen
