115. Thy light is come

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

Arise and shine; arise and shine:
Arise, thy light is come,
Arise and shine, Arise and shine.
Thy glorious light is come.

2 From this world's alluring snares,
From its perils and its cares,
From its vanity and strife,
Jesus beckons us to life. [Chorus]

3 From the vanities of youth,
Into rest and love and truth.
Into joy that never palls,
Jesus in his mercy calls. [Chorus]
