Description A concertato perfect for use on Epiphany.
Behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the people,
but the Lord shall arise upon you
and his glory shall be seen upon you.
Arise, shine, for your light is come,
and the glory of the Lord is risen.
O arise, shine, for your light is come,
and the glory of the Lord is upon you.
The nations shall come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your rising.
And they shall call you The City of the Lord,
O Zion of the Holy One of Israel. Refrain
Lift up your eyes round about and see:
All gather themselves together;
and they shall come, your sons from afar
and your daughters shall be carried at your side.
Then you shall see and be filled with joy,
and your heart shall thrill with rejoicing.
The abundance of the sea will be brought unto you,
and the wealth of the nations unto you. Refrain
The sun shall no more be your light by day,
nor moon your light by night,
for the Lord shall be your everlasting light,
and the days of your mourning shall be endured. Refrain
