When the Choir Broadcasts

By Ruth H. Chadwick

The Temple of God stands within my walls,
Lifting its spires to heaven above,
While Angel Moroni’s clarion calls
Proclaim the gospel of love.

It comes on the wings of music and song,
As the organ’s rhythmic harmonies
Sustain the cadenced tones and prolong
The celestial melodies.

It rises in splendor as each vibrant chord
Mingles with praise from the choir unseen,
To swell in hosannas to our Lord –
And my reverent heart is serene!

(1946)

  1. Sometimes distance does make the heart–and the imagination–grow fonder. I could imagine that hearing (not seeing) the Tabernacle Choir by radio must have transformed that otherwise boring family room into something other-wordly.
