Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.@Isaiah 60:1

Griffith Württemberg melody (🔊 pdf nwc).

Sinner, rouse thee from thy sleep;
Wake, and o’er thy folly weep;
Raise thy spirit, dark and dead;
Jesus waits His light to shed.

Wake from sleep; arise from death;
See the bright and living path;
Watchful, tread thy path, be wise;
Leave thy folly, seek the skies.

Leave thy folly, cease from crime;
From this hour redeem thy time;
Life secure without delay;
Evil is thy mortal day.

O then, rouse thee from thy sleep;
Wake, and o’er thy folly weep;
Jesus calls from death and night;
Jesus waits to shed His light.
