[Continuing the idea of one of my old hymns on Sundays]
Just once he showed his awesome majesty,
unveiling of his shining deity;
with Moses talked of what he’d soon fulfil
– the sacrificial Lamb would let them kill
himself: as Rescuer soon he would depart,
and lead to freedom, blessings great impart.
The Father spoke from heaven, awesome sound,
– announcement of the Son’s authority,
acknowledging his full divinity,
– one greater than Elijah here was found,
whom we should listen to attentively
our Maker, Saviour heed delightedly.
Matthew 17:1-13; Luke 9:28-36
