An Image of that Heavenly Light
An image of that heavenly light,
the goal the Church keeps ay in sight,
Christ on the holy mount displays
outshines the sun's bright rays.
Let every age proclaimer be
how, on this day, the chosen three
with Moses and Elias heard
the Lord speak many a gracious word.
As witnesses to grace are nigh
those twain, the Law and Prophecy;
and to the Son, from out the
the Father's record thunders loud.
With garments whiter than the snows,
and shining face, Lord Jesus shows
glory for those saints shall be
who joy in God with piety.
The vision and the mystery
make faithful hearts beat quick and
so on this solemn day of days
the cry goes up of prayer and praise.
O God the Father, God the Son,
and Holy Spirit,
Three in One,
vouchsafe to bring us, by thy grace,
to see thy glory face to face.
