“Arise, O sun, from out the east, Give light to my creation. Arise, O man, from out the dust, Make sons and tribes and nations.” Arise did sin from Satan’s lies, And man’s own greed within. “Arise, O sea; kill all, but save, The ark and those therein.” Arise, again, did sin and sought, To rule in every soul; But God had plans, His grace to give, And Heaven be the goal. “Arise, O star, o’er Bethlehem, Give light to travelers far.” God’s Son came down to bear our sins, And meet us as we are. “Arise, O Son, from out the grave, Give light to darkened hearts. Arise, ye sinners, take my gift, My Spirit to impart.” Arise with me this Easter morn, Accept His call to you. Arise to meet Him in the air, With shouts of Hallelu!
