Rise, Shine, You People!
Rise, shine, you people!
Christ the Lord has entered
our human story; God in him is centered.
He comes to us, by death and sin surrounded,
with grace unbounded.
See how he sends the pow'rs of evil reeling;
he brings us freedom, light and life and healing.
All men and women, who by guilt are driven,
now are forgiven.
your banners high unfurling,
your songs and prayers
against the darkness hurling.
To all the world go out and tell the story
of Jesus' glory.
Tell how the Father sent the Son to save us.
Tell of the Son, who life and freedom gave us.
Tell how the Spirit calls from ev'ry nation
God's new creation.
