1 On the mount of wondrous glory,
Borne aloft by faith we stand,
While we drink the crystal waters
Flowing down from Eden’s land.

How the heart, its toil forgets,
In the joy we there behold;
In the fullness of his love,
That is better felt than told.

2 On the mount of wondrous glory,
Where so oft ‘tis ours to be,
In the brightness of his presence,
Christ, our Lord, revealed we see. [Refrain]

3 On the mount of wondrous glory,
Where he bids me come and rest,
Jesus spreads a feast before us,
Making each a welcome guest. [Refrain]

4 If on earth our souls are honored
With such visions of delight,
Who can tell our heights of rapture,
When our faith is lost in sight. [Refrain]
