Arise, Shine, for Your Light has Come

with one comment

I really like this new song from Jered McKenna, based on Isaiah 60:1-19:

Arise shine for your light has come and the glory of God is on you
Arise see when the earth grows dark that the Lord will arise upon you
The Lord will arise upon you

Nations will come to your light lift up your eyes and see
We’ll gather together and come to you
And your love will be all that we know
Your love will be all that we know

Arise come to the open gates for the Father is welcoming you
Fear not for the Lord brings peace and redemption to all who believe

Nations will come to your light lift up your eyes and see
We’ll gather together and come to you
And your love will be all that we know
Your love will be all that we know

The sun will not shine cause you’ll be all the light that we need
and violence will end all the wars that we wage will cease

We will glorify your name
We will glorify your name.

The song is on the new “Canticles” album produced by Cardiphonia. Many of the songs from Cardiphonia are really good for congregational or small-group worship.
