Tis Good Lord to be Here

The hymn, Tis Good Lord to Be Here, was written by English clergyman and sometime Dean of Westminster, Joseph Armitage Robinson (1858-1933). It deals with the transfiguration of Jesus. When Peter saw Jesus in His heavenly glory on the mountaintop, he was so amazed that he never wanted to leave.

” As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what he was saying.) Luke 9:33

Of course, as we know, they could not remain because the work of Jesus on earth was not yet complete. As you listen to the words, let them fill you with the wonder of realizing who Jesus really is.
