1 Arise and shine thy light is come,
O Zion! now thy Lord appears,
That gracious light dispels the gloom
Of all thy doubts, thy dreads and fears.
2 Though darkness covers all thy land,
And ignorance doth vail thine eyes;
Yet at the mighty Lord's command
That light shall to all nations rise.
3 From sea to sea, from shore to shore
Shall the bless'd Saviour's name be spread:
And such as knew him ne'er before
Shall own him as their king and head.
4 Glad off'rings shall all nations bring,
And worship at his gracious throne;
Adore their Lord and Sovereign King,
And make his grace to sinners known.
5 Remotest nations on the earth
Shall hear and feel and Gospel word:
Those of renown and nobler birth
Shall humbly bow to Christ, their Lord.
6 Poor straying souls shall find their God,
And know their sins to be for giv'n,
And sanctified through Jesus' blood:
They shall be made the heirs of heav'n.
