1 O wondrous sight, O vision fair
of glory that the church shall share,
Which Christ upon the mountain shows,
where brighter than the sun, Christ glows!
2 From age to age the tale declare,
how with the three disciples there,
Where Moses and Elijah meet,
they with the Christ God's future greet.
3 The law and prophets there have place,
two chosen witnesses of grace;
the Father's voice from out the cloud
proclaims his only Son aloud.
4 With shining face and bright array
Christ deigns to manifest today
what glory shall be theirs above
who joy in God with perfect love.
5 And faithful hearts are raised on high
by this great vision's mystery,
For which in joyful strains we raise
the voice of prayer, the hymn of praise.
