Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Rise, Zion, shine, thy light is come

Rise, Zion, shine, thy light is come

Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Rise, Zion, shine, thy light is come,
The glorious day's begun,
These beams we see so bright that be,
Dart from the glorious sun.

2 Of righteousness, that rising is;
The day doth dawn apace;
The songs of praise we hear a days:
Of Christ and his free grace.

3 Are tokens plain, the Lamb once slain
Is hastening to his throne;
The bride doth say, come, haste away,
My dear beloved one.

4 The saints rejoice, the turtle's voice
Is heard within the land:
The hundred forty four thousand
Shall soon with Jesus stand.

5 And they shall sing, to Christ their King,
Their songs in such a strain,
That learn can none but those alone
Who with the Lord shall reign.

6 Ye taught ones of the Lord, sing praise
To the Lamb the throne upon;
'Tis only he taught you and me
To sing the Lamb's new song.
