Representative Text

Refrain:
Arise, for thy Light is come,
Arise, for thy Light is come,
Arise, for thy Light is come,
Arise, for thy Light is come,

1 Give thanks and rejoice in the name of the Lord,
The darkness of night is past;
The day long fortold by the prophets has dawned,
The morning has come at last. [Refrain]

2 The Light of the world now illumines the way,
Resplendent, divinely bright;
With love it is beaming from Calvary's mount,
Dispelling the gloom of night. [Refrain]

3) Unfading it shines, bringing peace to the soul,
Dispersing all fear and strife;
Its rays guiding safely the wanderers home,
Shine on, O Thou Light of Life. [Refrain]
