9. Arise and Shine

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

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]
