When Jesus led his chosen three

When Jesus led his chosen three
to lift the shadow from their sight,
and on the mountain let them see
his face transfigured, crowned with light:
what grace that day to them was given;
to men on earth a glimpse of heaven!

2. There Moses and Elijah stood
and spoke about his exodus,
their freedom purchased by his blood,
a passover fulfilled for us!
The law and prophets meet their Lord,
see God revealed and man restored.

3. Then from the cloud there came a voice,
‘This is my own beloved Son’;
the Scriptures’ theme, the Father’s choice,
their master stood supreme, alone:
they saw his glory, and they heard
the one eternal, living Word.

4. So may we see and know this grace-
the truth which like a burning light
illuminates the darkest place
till Christ himself shall end the night:
when to his people’s longing eyes
God’s day shall dawn, his sun shall rise.
