    “The Sacrament,” Ensign, Sept. 1986, 21

    The Sacrament

    “I stand all amazed …” shimmers

    In the organ air. Our hearts

    Respond like tuning forks, and voices

    Lift in unison of words garbed in the robes

    Of melody. All separation vanishes;

    We are made one in song’s sweet ebb and flow,

    In comfort of the Word. The very air is full

    Of benediction—joy like a current in the room.

    “For me He was crucified” halts my voice,

    Stuns me to pleading silence. I am awash

    In tears and truth.
