Lyrics: "From several scriptures" (Isaiah and Luke)

Arise, shine, O Zion, for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
Sing O heavens and be joyful, O earth, for behold I bring you glad tidings of great joy
which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour which is Christ the Lord.
Glory be to God on high, and on earth peace, goodwill towards men.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
Hallelujah, Amen.
