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,

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
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.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #XLIII
