Full Text

1 Out of darkness into light
Jesus calls the sons of night;
Out of midnight into day
Jesus bids us come away.

Refrain:
Arise, arise, arise and shine;
Arise, arise, thy light is come;
Arise and shine, thy light is come,
The glory of the Lord is ris'n upon our gloom.

2 From this world's alluring snares,
From its perils and its cares,
From its vanity and strife,
Jesus beckons us to life. [Refrain]

3 From the vanities of youth,
Into rest, and love, and truth,
Into joy that never palls,
Jesus in his mercy calls. [Refrain]

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
