ARISE and Shine!



ARISE and shine, my Christian friend,
There’s Kingdom work to be done--
Souls to be rescued, hearts to mend,
Sweet victories to be won.
The enemy goes to and fro
Seeking whom he may devour;
Let’s go with precious seed to sow,
And witness God’s mighty power…
ARISE and Shine!

Shine in darkness where it will count--
So many have never heard;
Call each one to the Shepherd’s fount…
Proclaim His glorious Word;
The Spirit is always at work
When we let our Light shine through…
We’ve a mission we must not shirk,
Let’s do what He’d have us do…
ARISE and Shine!

Take the Gospel message to all--
Tell how Jesus died for sin;
Souls are ready to hear His call…
And receive cleansing within;
On the Cross, the ransom was paid…
Christ purchased our salvation;
From the tomb, our LORD AROSE…
Let’s shine in celebration…
ARISE and Shine!

 “ARISE, shine; for thy light has come,
and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.”
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see
your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
(Is 60:1; Matt 5:16)
