883. The Third Song of Isaiah (Surge, illuminare): Canticle 11

Refrain:
Arise, shine, for your light has come,
his glory is upon you.

1 Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has dawned upon you.
For behold, darkness covers the land;
deep gloom enshrouds the peoples. (Refrain)

2 But over you the Lord shall rise,
and his glory will appear upon you.
Nations will stream to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawning. (Refrain)

3 Your gates will always be open;
by day or night they will never be shut.
They will call you, The City of the Lord,
The Zion of the Holy One of Israel. (Refrain)

4 Violence will no more be heard in your land,
ruin or destruction within your borders.
Your will call your walls, Salvation,
and all your portals, Praise,
†The sun will no more be your light by day;
by night you will not need the brightness of the moon. (Refrain)
