2 Arise, arise, good Christian,
Let right to wrong succeed;
Let penitential sorrow
To heavenly gladness lead; To the light that hath no evening, That knows nor moon nor sun, The light so new and golden, The light that is but one.
3 O happy, holy portion, Refection for the blest, True vision of true beauty, Sweet cure of all distressed!
Strive, man, to win that glory;
Toil, man, to gain that light; Send hope before to grasp it,
Till hope be lost in sight.
4 O sweet and bless&d country,
The home of God's elect; O sweet and bless&d country
That eager hearts expect! Jesus, in mercy bring us
To that dear land of rest, Who art, with God the Father,
And Spirit, ever blest.
Bernard of Cluny, 1145. Tr. by J. M. Nkale, 1858
