1 They walked and talked with Jesus,
And knew not it was he
Who gave his life a ransom
To set the captive free.
His words of holy power,
His look of matchless grace,
Seemed more than those of mortal,
And charmed their wondering gaze.

Refrain:
Oh, to thus commune with thee!—
All the journey, living, dying—
Oh, to walk and talk with thee!
‘Tis heaven begun below.

2 And then unveiled before them,
The Savior stood revealed;
The blessed risen Jesus
No longer was concealed,
Oh, wondrous revelation!
The God and man combined!
The great I AM—Almighty—
In human form enshrined! [Refrain]

3 And with his dear disciples,
He walks and talks today,
“Lo! I am with you alway,”
We hear him gently say.
Oh, blissful hour when Jesus
Unveils his glorious face,
And shows his saving power,
And his amazing grace. [Refrain]
