Arise!

AriseShine

Arise, sleeping one

and stand up out of the dead ones!

Arise, sleeping one

and Christ will shine on you!

(Ephesians 5:14)

Lord, deepen our desire,

Clothe us in a new attire

Purify us now by fire!

Adorn us with Your love,

Clothe us in Your righteousness

Prepare us in holiness.

That we may arise! That we may arise! That we may arise!
For Your glory! For Your glory!

Earnest expectation,

Of the new creation

Awaits the revelation

Of the Sons of God,

Clothed in His righteousness

Prepared in holiness.

And we shall arise! Yes, we shall arise! And we shall arise!
For Your glory! For Your glory!
And we now arise! Yes, we now arise! And we now arise!
For Your glory! For Your glory!
