… for everything that becomes visible is light. Therefore, it says, “Sleeper, awake! Rise from the dead, andChristwill shine on you.”
The morning starts
With shining light,
And the day lies ahead
With hopeful hearts.
When exposed to light
We overcome the dread
Of darkness of the night.
Now with certainty we know
The shine of lucent beam
From God is are daily sign
That glow is for all to feel
The love of the eternal Divine
Coming to succor and to heal.
Everyone awake, arise from bed
And from your nightly
Toss with the dead.
Arise joyfully asJesusdid.
Be awake inChristeach day
Proclaiming the light shines
On and from you; not hid.
Daily we sing the ancient song,
“Rise, shine, the Glory of the LORD
Has dawned upon us from above,”
And every morning no need to long,
Hoping we live in the Light of love.
All sacred charity is now around.
Thus, we all can sing with one accord
The ancient song of glory light
And with joy proclaiming to be found
By God who seeks us in the night.
