Hymn 88
O Master, it is good to be

1. O Master, it is good to be High on the mountain here with Thee, Where stand revealed to mortal gaze The great old saints of other days Who once received, on Horebís height, The eternal laws of truth and right, Or caught the still small whisper, higher Than storm, than earthquake, or than fire. 2. O Master, it is good to be With Thee and with Thy faithful three; Here, where the apostleís heart of rock Is nerved against temptationís shock; Here, where the Son of Thunder learns The thought that breathes, the word that burns; Here, where on eagleís wings we move With him whose last, best creed is love. 3. O Master, it is good to be Entranced, enwrapt, alone with Thee Watching the glistering raiment glow, Whiter than Hermonís whitest snow, The human lineaments that shine Irradiant with a light divine; Till we too change from grace to grace; Gazing on that transfigured face. 4. O Master, it is good to be Here on the holy mount with Thee; When darkling in the depths of night, When dazzled with excess of light, We bow before the heavenly voice That bids bewildered souls rejoice, Though love waz cold and faith be dim ĎThis is My Son! O hear ye Him!í
