Lyrics

Arise with joy, O faithful band,
And come to meet the Lord most high!
Arise, the kingdom is at hand,
The glorious King is drawing nigh.
Lo,Ok up, all souls, weighed down with care,
And see, the Sov'reign is not far;
Lo,Ok up, faint hearts, from your despair,
Behold the bright and Morning Star!

Rejoice, all weary hearts today,
Our Lord and King is very near,
So cast your grief and fears away,
For your deliverance  is here!
Redeemer, come, with us abide,
let us your holy presence feel,
our hearts to you we open wide,
your grace and love to us reveal.

O brighter than some glorious morn 
shall this new day of wonder be,

when Christ, our King, in beauty comes,
and we at last His face shall see.
For this we raise a joyful voice,
On high we sing to you alone,
And evermore with thanks rejoice,
And bow before your glorious throne.
