1 O wondrous type, O vision fair
Of glory that the Church shall share,
Which Christ upon the mountain shows
When brighter than the sun He glows.
2 With shining face and bright array,
Christ deigns to manifest today
What glory shall be theirs above
Who joy in God with perfect love.
3 And faithful hearts are raised on high
By this great vision's mystery;
For which in joyful strains we raise
The voice of prayer, the hymn of praise.
4 O Father, with th' eternal Son,
And Holy Spirit, ever One,
Vouchsafe to bring us by Thy grace
To see Thy glory face to face.
