Transfiguration (We behold the splendour of God) - Landry

Jesus with Moses and Elijah - disciples on the ground.    We behold the splendour of God shining on the face of Jesus We behold the  splendour of God shining on the face of the Son.   1. And O how his beauty transforms us the wonder of presence abiding. Transparent hearts give reflection of Tabor's light within, of Tabor's light within. 2. Jesus Lord of glory Jesus beloved Son. O how good to be with you, how good to share your light, how good to share your light.
This hymn about the Transfiguration (Year A - Matthew 17:1-9, Mark 9: 2-10 and Luke 9:28-36) was written by American musician and (at that time) Roman Catholic priest Carey Landry (b 1944).

It was recorded on Landry's Abba Father album, and first published in 1976.   It does not appear to be in (m)any hymnals, but sheet music is still available (for purchase and then digital-download) from OCP.  

The song is set to an unnamed tune, also by Landry. This has a 3/4 time signature. In the key of F, the first few notes are A G B BA G G F A.
