25. Wondrous Glory

1 On the mount of wondrous glory,
Borne aloft by faith we stand,
While we drink the crystal waters
Flowing down from Eden’s land.

Refrain:
How the heart, its toil forgets,
In the joy we there behold;
In the fullness of his love,
That is better felt than told.

2 On the mount of wondrous glory,
Where so oft ‘tis ours to be,
In the brightness of his presence,
Christ, our Lord, revealed we see. [Refrain]

3 On the mount of wondrous glory,
Where he bids me come and rest,
Jesus spreads a feast before us,
Making each a welcome guest. [Refrain]

4 If on earth our souls are honored
With such visions of delight,
Who can tell our heights of rapture,
When our faith is lost in sight. [Refrain]
