Welcome to the HistoricHymns.com Hymn Details Page!
|1||When eve had come, and twilight fell,
And day’s long toil had ended,
A chosen band of faithful souls
Fair Hermon’s slope ascended,
To witness in that unknown place
God’s glory in their Master’s face.
|2||But not alone, for two are seen
Far famed in Israel’s story;
With Him they speak, Whose face and form
Are luminous with glory;
Beholding– hope of guilty race!–
God’s glory in the Savior’s face.
|3||Almighty Father, throned for aye,
From Heaven’s splendor hear us,
Grant us by faith in Christ to know
Thy presence ever near us;
Through all life’s discipline to trace
Thy glory in the Savior’s face.
|4||And when the great white throne is set,
And heard the dread decision,
May we, set free from earthly stain,
See with an open vision,
Beholding, ransomed by Thy grace,
Thy glory in the Savior’s face. Amen.
|2 Corinthians||4:6||For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
