Arise And Shine!
By Joanne Standfield
Arise and shine for your light has come
and the Glory of The Lord has risen upon you,
His grace now abounding
for all you’re called to do.
He’ll strengthen you when all strength fails,
uphold you with his hand,
revealing great and mighty things
as on His Word you stand.
Oh, the wonders of the glory
of His amazing grace,
that is changing you into His likeness
as you behold His glorious face.
‘Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth and deep darkness the people;
but the Lord will arise over you and His glory will be seen upon you.’
‘And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work’.
[2 Corinthians 9:8]
