When he took the three disciples to the mountainside to pray, his countenance was modified, his clothing was aflame. Two men appeared: Moses and Elijah came; they were at his side. The prophecy, the legislation spoke of whenever he would die. Then there came a word of what he should accomplish on the day. Then Peter spoke, to make of them a tabernacle place. A cloud appeared in glory as an accolade. They fell on the ground. A voice arrived, the voice of God, the face of God, covered in a cloud. What he said to them, the voice of God: the most beloved son. Consider what he says to you, consider what's to come. The prophecy was put to death, was put to death, and so will the Son. And keep your word, disguise the vision till the time has come. Lost in the cloud, a voice: Have no fear! We draw near! Lost in the cloud, a sign: Son of man! Turn your ear! Lost in the cloud, a voice: Lamb of God! We draw near! Lost in the cloud, a sign: Son of man! Son of God!
Faithful 04:21
In the light of Your Son I find it's not what I've done for You have overcome grace I couldn't afford Your love has opened the door now my hope is secure. You are faithful always faithful to me You're faithful to me. Surely as the morning sun will rise You're faithful to me. In the light of the dawn my praise will go on Forever You'll be my song love I couldn't deny You have opened my eyes and brought me into Your light. You are faithful always faithful to me You're faithful to me. Surely as the morning sun will rise You're faithful to me. Though at times I don't see my heart will believe You're the maker of all things. faith has ahold on my view my understanding renewed You're the hope I cling to. You are faithful always faithful to me You're faithful to me. Surely as the morning sun will rise You're faithful to me. Though my strength is weak still You are strong. You're faithful to me. All Your ways are true You fail me not. You're faithful to me.
God of mercy full of grace, you are forever, always forever. Slow to anger rich in love, you are forever, always forever. We hear your kingdom shout and all your praises ring. So let the heavens roar, echo across the ground, and as your people sing of your majesty, Lord hear the sound, Lord hear the sound. You forgive, you restore, you redeem, everyone.
