11516. The Light Is Come

1 Out of darkness into light
Jesus calls the sons of night;
Out of midnight into day
Jesus bids us come away.

Arise and shine!
Thy light is come;
The glory of the Lord
Is risen upon our gloom.
Arise and shine!
Thy light is come,
The glory of the Lord
Is risen upon our gloom.

2 From the prison house of sin,
From the power without, within,
From this mortal weariness,
Jesus calls to joy and peace. [Refrain]

3 From this world’s alluring snares,
From its perils and its cares;
From its vanity and strife,
Jesus beckons us to life. [Refrain]

4 From the vanity of youth
Into rest and love and truth,
Into joy that never palls,
Jesus now in mercy calls. [Refrain]
