Author: Brian Wren Hymnal: The United Methodist Hymnal #260 (1989) Meter: 18.104.22.168 with alleluia Lyrics: 1 Christ, upon the mountain peak,
stands alone in glory blazing;
let us, if we dare to speak,
with the saints and angels praise him:
2 Trembling at his feet we saw
Moses and Elijah speaking.
All the prophets and the law
shout thru them their joyful greeting:
3 Swift the cloud of glory came,
God proclaiming in its thunder
Jesus as the Son by name!
Nations, cry aloud in wonder:
4 This is God's beloved Son!
Law and prophets fade before him;
first and last and only one,
let creation now adore him:
