Ash Wednesday to Pentecost

Transfigured Man

  1. Transfigured man whose shining face
    Proclaims Your Godliness on earth,
    Sustain us, caught between Your birth
    And Your redeeming sacrifice.
  2. As we embark upon the trial
    Of forty days of penitence,
    May we recall your radiance
    As we go faltering to our goal.
  3. May we more fully turn in Lent
    Calmly to meet our neighbours' needs,
    Giving up platitudes for deeds,
    Confronting what we most resent.
  4. And when our best is truly given,
    Our trial lessened through Your Grace,
    May we be fit to see Your face
    Dimly on earth, fully in heaven.
