Jesus climbed the mighty mountain with disciples by his side -
Peter, John, and James went with him; there the Spirit would abide.
Early in the morn they gathered to prepare to climb the height,
Little did they know that blindness would reveal their sacred sight!
Once the mountain had been conquered, Jesus stopped to pray and rest.
Then the Spirit came upon him, dazzling bright upon his breast.
Jesus’ face appeared to change him, morphing into blinding glow.
All who saw it masked their faces, marveled at the Spirit’s show.
Once their bleary eyes adjusted to the splendor of the view.
Moses and Elijah joined him, Jesus spoke between the two.
Three bright faces shone and glimmered, chatted till the sun grew dim,
Peter, John, and James grew weary, yet they stayed and worshiped him.
Peter was the first to speak up, he had watched them long enough,
“it is good for us to stay here, let us get some camping stuff!”
Then a voice came down from heaven, bellowing as from the past:
“Here’s my Son, my chosen prophet. Be still, Peter, listen fast!”
When the voice had finished speaking, Moses and Elijah went,
Jesus stood alone above them, silence came, the light was spent.
Down they walked in silent wonder, still in awe because the light.
To the cross their savior turned them, there would he reveal his might.
