One of the posts above says someone has sheet music in four-part harmony for "After" available as well as a chord chart. Please send both to the following address if still available: Thanks!

In "The Male Chorus", published in 1888, I have this version of "After" by F.C.A. (possibly Florence C. Armstrong?)/Ira D. Sankey:

Verse 1:
After the show'r, the tranquil sun:
Silver stars when the day is done.
After the snow, the emerald leaves:
After the harvest, golden sheaves.

Verse 2:
After the clouds, the violet sky,
Quiet woods when the wind goes by.
After the tempest, the lull of waves;
After the battle, peaceful graves.

Verse 3:
After the knell, the wedding bells,
Joyful greetings from sad farewells.
After the bud, the radiant rose;
After our weeping, sweet repose.

Verse 4:
After the burden, the blissful mead:
After the furrow, the waking seed.
After the flight, the downy nest;
After the shadowy river--rest.

Music is in Singspiration 'Favourites #2' copyright 1946.
I would love the chord sheet though!

Can't seem to find much on this song called "After" by N.B. Vandall, so I made a midi file and then made a karaoke file and uploaded it to You Tube. You can find that karaoke on my You Tube channel here. I also have a chord sheet that I made in the key of F, as well as the sheet music in 4 part harmony. Leave a message if you would like any of these. Thanks.

Can anyone help me locate the music for "After". I am helping my mother prepare her requests and she would like to have this sung. If this is published in a hymnal or a collections book, please advise of the book and hope that it is still in print. Whatever help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Some of us may remember C. W. Burpo's "The Bible Institute of the Air" radio program. He sang that song on several occasions. Every time I heard it, it seemed to me he was looking into Heaven. Just the thing this (ex-) high school boy needed back in the 70's before catching the bus!

This was one of my grandmothers favorites and it was sung at her funeral. Thank you for sharing the lyrics!
