15 A SONG OF THE NEW JERUSALEM
Surge illuminare

Refrain: Nations will come to your light,*
and kings to your dawning brightness.
1 Arise, shine out, for your light has come,*
the glory of the Lord is rising upon you.
2 Though night still covers the earth,*
and darkness the peoples;
3 Above you the Holy One arises,*
and above you God’s glory appears.
4 The nations will come to your light,*
and kings to your dawning brightness.
5 Your gates will lie open continually;*
shut neither by day nor by night.
6 The sound of violence
   shall be heard no longer in your land,*
or ruin and devastation within your borders.
7 You will call your walls, Salvation,*
and your gates, Praise.
8 No more will the sun give you daylight,*
nor moonlight shine upon you;
9 But the Lord will be your everlasting light,*
your God will be your splendour.
10 For you shall be called the city of God,*
the dwelling of the Holy One of Israel.
Glory . . . Isaiah 60. 1-3, 11, 18-19, 14
Nations will come to your light,*
and kings to your dawning brightness.
