"Arise, O God, and Shine"
by William Hurn, 1754-1829
THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
(St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)
1. Arise, O God, and shine
In all Thy saving might
And prosper each design
To spread Thy glorious light;
Let healing streams of mercy flow
That all the earth Thy truth may know.
2. Bring distant nations near
To sing Thy glorious praise;
Let every people hear
And learn Thy holy ways.
Reign, mighty God, assert Thy cause
And govern for Thy righteous laws.
3. Put forth Thy glorious power
That Gentiles all may see
And earth present her store
In converts born to Thee.
God, our God, His Church will bless
And fill the world with righteousness.
4. To God, the only Wise,
The one immortal King,
Let hallelujahs rise
From every living thing;
Let all that breathe, on every coast,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
