Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

When Christ was on the mount revealed

When Christ was on the mount revealed

Published in 3 hymnals

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.
