Lyrics as Poetry

Jesus on the mountain peak
stands alone in glory blazing;
Let us, if we dare to speak,
join the saints and angels praising.Alleluia!Trembling at his feet we saw
Moses and Elijah speaking.
All the prophets and the law
shout through them their joyful greeting:Alleluia!Swift the cloud of glory came,
God, proclaiming, in its thunder,
Jesus as the Son by name!
Nations, cry aloud in wonder:Alleluia!Jesus is the chosen One.
Living hope of every nation,
hear and heed him, everyone;
sing, with earth and all creation,
