Hymn/Song Information

Not always on the mount may we Rapt in




Not always on the mount may we
Rapt in the heavínly vision be:
The shores of thought and feeling know
The Spiritís tidal ebb and flow.


ďLord it is good abiding here,Ē
We cry, the heavínly presence near:
The vision vanishes, our eyes
Are lifted into vacant skies.


Yet hath one such exalted hour
Upon the soul redeeming power,
And its strength, through after days,
We travel our appointed ways,


Till all the lowly vale grows bright,
Transfigured in remembered light,
And in untiring souls we bear
The freshness of the upper air.


The mount for vision: but below
The paths of daily duty go,
And nobler life therein shall own
The pattern on the mountain shown.
