O the transporting, rapturous scene

Tune: MCKAY (Denson)
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

O the transporting, rapturous scene
That rises to my sight!
sweet fields arrayed in living green,
And rivers of delight
There gen'rous fruits that never fail
On trees immortal grow,
There rocks and hills and brooks and vales
With milk and honey flow.
There gen'rous fruits that never fail
On trees immortal grow,
There rocks and hills and brooks and vales
With milk and honey flow.
