Elijah's mantle o'er Elisha cast: each age for your own solemn task prepares; make each one stronger, nobler than the last. 2 Anoint us prophets! Teach us your intent: to human need, our quickened hearts awake; fill us with power, our lips make eloquent for righteousness that shall all evil break. 4 Anoint us kings! Help us do justice, Lord! Anoint us with the Spirit of your Son: ours not a monarch's crown or tyrant's sword; ours by the love of Christ a kingdom won. 5 Make us apostles, heralds of your cross; forth may we go to tell all realms your grace: by you inspired, may we count all but loss, and stand at last with joy before your face.

The Glory of These Forty Days

Author: M. F. Bell; Gregory the Great Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 24 hymnals Scripture: 2 Kings 2:11 Lyrics: 1 The glory of these forty days we celebrate with songs of praise, for Christ, by whom all things were made, himself has fasted and has prayed. 2 Alone and fasting Moses saw the loving God who gave the Law, and to Elijah, fasting, came the steeds and chariots of flame. 3 So Daniel trained his mystic sight, delivered from the lions’ might, and John, the Bridegroom’s friend, became the herald of Messiah’s name. 4 Then grant us, Lord, like them to be full oft in fast and prayer with thee; our spirits strengthen with thy grace, and give us joy to see thy face.

See, the Conqueror Mounts in Triumph

Author: Christopher Wordsworth Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Appears in 181 hymnals Scripture: 2 Kings 2:9-11 Lyrics: 1 See, the Conqu'ror mounts in triumph, see the King in royal state riding on the clouds, his chariot to his heav'nly palace gate; Hark! the choirs of angel voices joyful Alleluias sing and the portals high are lifted to receive their heav'nly King. 2 Who is he that comes in glory with the trump of jubilee? Lord of battles, God of armies, he has gained the victory. He who on the cross did suffer, he who from the grave arose, he has vanquished sin and Satan, he by death has spoiled his foes. 3 While he lifts his hands in blessing he is parted from his friends; while their eager eyes behold him, he upon the clouds ascends; he who walked with God and pleased him, preaching truth and doom to come, he, our Enoch, is translated to his everlasting home. 4 Now our heav'nly Aaron enters with his blood within the veil; Joshua now is come to Canaan, and the kings before him quail. Now he plants the tribes of Israel in their promised resting place, now our great Elijah offers double portion of his grace. 5 He has raised our human nature on the clouds to God's right hand; there we sit in heav'nly places, there with thee in glory stand; Jesus reigns, adored by angels, mighty Lord, in thine Ascension we by faith behold our own.

We Have Come at Christ's Own Bidding

Author: Carl P. Daw, Jr. (1944-) Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Appears in 11 hymnals Scripture: 2 Kings 2:1-14 Lyrics: 1 We have come at Christ’s own bidding to this high and holy place, where we wait with hope and longing for some token of God’s grace. Here we pray for new assurance that our faith is not in vain, searching like those first disciples for a sign both clear and plain. 2 Light breaks in upon our darkness, splendour bathes the flesh-joined Word, Moses and Elijah marvel as the heavenly voice is heard. Eyes and hearts behold with wonder how the law and prophets meet: Christ, with garments drenched in brightness, stands transfigured and complete. 3 Strengthened by this glimpse of glory, fearful lest our faith decline, we like Peter find it tempting to remain and build a shrine. But true worship gives us courage to proclaim what we profess, that our daily lives may prove us people of the God we bless. Topics: Transfiguration Used With Tune: O MEIN JESU, ICH MUSS STERBEN

Transfigured Christ, None Comprehends

Author: Alan Gaunt (1935-) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 2 hymnals Scripture: 2 Kings 2:1-14 Lyrics: 1 Transfigured Christ, none comprehends your majesty, whose splendour stuns all waking souls; whose light transcends the brightness of a thousand suns! 2 You stand with Moses on the hill, you speak of your new exodus. The way through death, you will fulfil by dying helpless on the cross. 3 You stand here with Elijah too, by whom the still small voice was heard: and you, yourself, will prove God true, made mute in death, incarnate Word. 4 If we could bear your brightness here and stay for ever in your light, then we would conquer grief and fear, and scorn the terrors of the night. 5 But, from the heights, you bring us down, to share earth's agonies with you, where piercing thorns are made your crown and death, accepted, proves love true. 6 Majestic Christ, God's well-loved son, if we must share your grief and loss, transfigure us, when all is done, with glory shining from your cross.
