Jesus, Peter, James and John

Jesus, Peter, James and John, climbed a mountain after dawn.

Reaching an exalted height, they then beheld an awesome sight.

Jesus was transfigured there, shining face and clothes made fair.

Prophets stood beside the Lord and conversations went unheard.


Peter spoke up to suggest, “Let’s stay here; forsake the rest.” 

Then a voice spoke from above, “This one is my be-lov-ed son.

Listen, do the things he says.” Full of fear, they acted dead.

Jesus’ touched and woke the three, and led them back to Galilee.
