Not always on the Mount
Not always on the mount may we
Rapt in the heav’nly vision be:
The shores of thought and feeling know
Spirit’s tidal ebb and flow.
“Lord it is good abiding here,”
We cry, the heav’nly presence near:
The vision vanishes, our
Are lifted into vacant skies.
Yet hath one such exalted hour
Upon the soul redeeming power,
its strength, through after days,
We travel our appointed ways,
Till all the lowly vale grows bright,
Transfigured in remembered
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.
