O wondrous type, O vision fair
1. O wondrous type, O vision fair
Of glory that the Church shall share,
Which Christ upon the mountain shows,
Where brighter than the sum 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 visionís mystery,
For which, in joyful strains, we raise
The voice of prayer, the hymn of praise.
4. O Father, with the eternal Son
And Holy Spirit ever One,
Vouchsafe to bring us, by Thy grace,
To see the glory face to face.
