Representative Text

1 Arise and shine, for the light is come to thee,
For the glory of the Lord is nigh;
Lift up thine eyes round about, and you will see
That the crowning day is coming by and by.

Refrain:
The crowning day is coming by and by,
When the Lord will come in glory from on high;
Then fight, fight, fight, in the battle for the right,
For the glory of the Lord is drawing nigh.

2 Arise and shine, for the day is dawning bright,
And the glory of the Lord is nigh;
Press on, on, on, in the battle for the right,
For the crowning day is coming by and by. [Refrain]

3 Arise and shine, let the world around you know
That the glory of the Lord is nigh;
In word and deed may you Christ to others show,
For the crowning day is coming by and by. [Refrain]

4 Arise and shine, for the King of Heaven’s come,
And the glory of the Lord is nigh;
Some day by faith we will reach that Heav’nly home,
In that crowning day that’s coming by and by. [Refrain]
