The transfiguration

Representative Text

1. Glorious scene, those three appalling!
Blinded see them prostrate falling,
While the voice of God is calling,
"This is my beloved Son,
This is my beloved Son."

Chorus:
"This is My beloved Son.
This is My beloved Son,
This is My beloved Son,
In whom I am well pleased.
Hear ye Him;
Hear ye Him;
Hear ye Him;
O hear ye Him;
Hear ye Him, hear ye Him, hear ye Him.

2. God is speaking, mortals hear Him;
Awful voice, creation fears Him;
Owns His Son, bids men revere Him,
Bids them hear the gracious One,
Bids them hear the gracious one. [Chorus]

3. Through that voice to ev'ry nation,
God is offering salvation,
Free to men of ev'ry station.
Hear ye Him, He speaks today,
Bids them hear the gracious one. [Chorus]

4. Hear ye Him for sin enthralls you;
Hear ye Him ere harm befalls you;
Hear ye Him while yet He calls you,
Do not from Him turn away,
Do not from Him turn away. [Chorus]
