O Wondrous Type! O Vision Fair

The Gospel of St. Luke

Latin 10th cent; tr. Laurence Housman
& Latin 15th cent; tr. Hymns Ancient and Modern, 1861,
after John Mason Neale (1818-1866)


Jesus took with him Peter, James and John, and went up into a mountain to pray. And as he prayed, he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his garments white as the light.

O wondrous type! O vision fair
of glory that the Church may share,
which Christ upon the mountain shows
,
where brighter than the sun he glows
!


With Moses and Elijah nigh
the incarnate Lord holds converse high;
and from the cloud, the Holy One
b
ears record to the only Son
.

From the cloud a voice from heaven: This is my son, my beloved Son.


O Light of Light, Love given birth;
Jesus, Redeemer of the earth:
more bright than day your face did show,
your raiment whiter than the sno
w.

May all who seek to praise aright
through purer lives show forth your light.
To you, the King of glory, now
all faithful hearts adoring bow
.

And faithful hearts are raised on high
by this great visionís mystery;
for which in joyful strains we raise
the voice of prayer, the hymn of praise
.

With shining face and bright array,
Christ deigns to manifest today
what glory shall be theirs above
who joy in God with perfect love
.

O Father, with the eternal Son,
and Holy Spirit, ever One,
vouchsafe to bring us by thy grace
to see thy glory face to face
.
