Arise and Shine Forth
A glorious dawn o’er all the world is breaking, Arise! You are called to bear the Savior’s name, The fire of His spirit in faithful hearts is burning, Arise! You are called to hold aloft its flame. REFRAIN: Arise and shine forth, a light unto the nations, A beacon of salvation, a standard o’er the earth, Arise and shine forth to fill a world in darkness With the brightness and the glory of the Lord, Arise! Arise and shine forth. 2. A glorious dawn o’er all the world is breaking, For prophets again have heard the voice of God, He speaks from the heavens to every tongue and people. Arise! You are called to spread his word abroad. REFRAIN A glorious dawn o’er all the world is breaking, The hour is at hand when Christ will come to reign, When goodness and mercy will govern all creation. Arise! you are called to usher in the day. REFRAIN.
