Hymn/Song Information

A type of those bright rays on high Of glory that




O wondrous sight! O vision fair
Of glory that the church shall share,
Which Christ upon the mountain shows,
Where brighter than the sun He glows!


From age to age the tale declares
How with the three disciples there
Where Moses and Elijah meet,
The Lord holds converse high and sweet.


The law and prophets there have place,
Two chosen witnesses of grace,
The Fatherís voice from out the cloud
Proclaims His only Son aloud.


With shining face and bright array,
Christ deigns to manifest that day
What glory shall be theirs above
Who joy in God with perfect love.


And faithful hearts are raised on high
By this great visionís mystery;
For which in joyful strains we raise
The voice of prayer, the hymn of praise.


O Father, with the eternal Son,
And Holy Spirit, ever One,
Vouchsafe to bring us by Thy grace
To see Thy glory face to face.

A type of those bright rays on high
Of glory that the church shall share,
Which Christ upon the mountain shows,
Where brighter than the sun He glows!
