Refrain:

All   Above you the Holy One arises,

and above you God’s glory appears.

1    Arise, shine out, for your light has come,  

the glory of the Lord is rising upon you.

2    Though night still covers the earth,  

and darkness the peoples;

3    Above you the Holy One arises,  

and above you God’s glory appears.

4    The nations will come to your light,  

and kings to your dawning brightness.

5    Your gates will lie open continually,  

shut neither by day nor by night.

6    The sound of violence shall be heard no longer in your land,  

or ruin and devastation within your borders.

7    You will call your walls, Salvation,  

and your gates, Praise.

8    No more will the sun give you daylight,  

nor moonlight shine upon you;

9    But the Lord will be your everlasting light,  

your God will be your splendour.

10  For you shall be called the city of God,  

the dwelling of the Holy One of Israel.

Isaiah 60.1-3,11a,18,19,14b

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

All   Above you the Holy One arises,

and above you God’s glory appears.
