O God Beautiful
Paramahansa Yogananda narrates this experience at Carnegie Hall in New York, the music temple of America during April 1925 :-
“ One evening I started to chant “O God Beautiful” and asked the audience, who had never heard the song, to join me in chanting it. For one hour and twenty-five minutes, the thousands of voices of the entire audience chanted “ O God Beautiful” in a divine atmosphere of joyous praise. Even after I had left the stage, the audience sat on, chanting the song. The next day many men and women testified to God-perception and the healing of body, mind and soul that had taken place during the sacred chanting, and numerous requests came in to repeat the song at other services”
