1 Fair mount where Jesus knelt and prayed,
What splendor crowned thy holy crest
When to His followers He revealed
The Godhead they by faith confessed!

2 Bright as the sun His face they saw,
White as the light His garments gleamed;
Transfigured He transfigured all
The place whereon His radiance streamed.

3 With earth so far, and Heav’n so near
What wonder they were fain to stay;
And Moses and Elias came
By that great vision rapt as they!

4 What wonder, while with them He spake
And overhead the cloud appeared
And from its glory came the voice,
That they who heard it greatly feared!

5 The glory waned, the saints of old
Departed by the ways unknown.
And looking up, the prostrate three
Beheld their blessèd Lord alone.

6 No more that vision may return,
The cloud appear, the voice be heard;
But by that one transcendent scene
The heart of faith is ever stirred.

7 And though we see Thee not, O Lord,
Thy presence faithful souls perceive,
And blessèd they, as Thou hast said.
Who have not seen and yet believe.
