1 O child of God, awake, arise,
And heav’nward lift thy longing eyes,
Thy songs of praise to God now raise,
For the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.

Refrain:
Arise, and shine, for thy light is come,
Arise and shine for the night is gone,
Arise and shine for the day has come,
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.

2 No more shall darkness hide thy path,
Thy foes no more shall at thee laugh,
The darkest night is turned to light,
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. [Refrain]

3 Thy heart no more shall fear or dread,
The oil of gladness crowns thy head,
Peace, pow’r and love come from above,
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. [Refrain]

4 All tears thy God shall wipe away,
And make thy life one cloudless day,
Thro’ endless days then sing God’s praise,
For the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. [Refrain]
