Jesus Transfigured

Out of this world

As far as we’re concerned

This story of the Lord

The mountainside

For we live down below

We do not know up there

There the air is rarefied

Most folk couldn’t care


And the Lord was put to death in the end

No song and dance about a rising then

But Peter is our witness

On mountain and at tomb

What he saw and heard

He witnessed to

And I would trust his word


I’ve stood upon a mountaintop

And viewed the world below

Its loveliness its beauty and its show

I went when I was lonely

The beauty calmed my soul

It promises a heaven

And heaven is the goal
