1 Arise, O God, and shine
In all Thy saving might,
And prosper each design
To spread Thy glorious light:
Let healing streams of mercy flow,
That all the earth Thy truth may know,
That all the earth Thy truth may know.
2 Bring distant nations near
To sing Thy glorious praise;
Let ev'ry people hear
And learn Thy holy ways:
Reign, mighty God, assert Thy cause,
And govern by Thy righteous laws,
And govern by Thy righteous laws.
3 Send forth Thy glorious power,
That Gentiles all may see,
And earth present her store
In converts born to Thee:
God, our own God, His Church will bless,
And fill the world with righteousness,
And fill the world with righteousness.
4 To God, the only wise,
The one immortal King,
Let hallelujahs rise
From every living thing:
Let all that breathe, on every coast,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
