2 0, where is He that trod the sea, 0, where is He that spake, And dark waves, rolling heavily, A glassy smoothness take;
2   From age to age the tale declare, How with the three disciples there, Where Moses and Elias meet,
The Lord holds converse high and sweet.
3  With shining face and bright array, Christ deigns to manifest to-day What glory shall be theirs above, Who joy in God with perfect love.
Full soon, with food celestial fed, Their mystic fare they take;
'Twas springtide when He blest the bread,! And harvest when He brake.
4  And faithful hearts are raised on high i By this great vision's mystery;
For which in joyful strains we raise The voice of prayer, the hymn of praise.!
5   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.
Latin. Tr. by J. M. Neale, 1854
