When Christ was on the mount revealed

When Christ was on the mount revealed

Representative Text

1 When Christ was on the mount reveal'd
In his Disciples view,
Their hearts with dread and fear was fill'd,
With joy, and wonder too.

2 Their feeble eyes could scarce behold
The brightness of his face;
The Sun with all his glory could,
Dart no such glorious rays.

3 To prove that Jesus was the Lord,
Elias did appear;
And Moses bore the same record,
Whilst both convers'd him there.

4 A gracious voice from heaven came:
This is mine only son!
Give praise and honour to his name,
And make his glories known.

5 Should we not wish with him to dwell?
And view him ever more;
Like the Disciples, hear and feel
His glory, love and pow'r.

6 Can such a sight of Christ below
Transport our souls with love?
Far greater joys will He bestow,
In the bright world above.
