Arise, shine, for your light has come
and the glory of the Lord rises upon
you. See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples
but the Lord rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
Lift up your eyes and look about you
All assemble and come to you
your sons come from afar and your daughters are carried on the hip. Then you will look and be radiant your heart will throb and swell with joy, the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come.
