Lyrics:
Soloist:
Rise, O people, awake!
The light of Christ is dawning!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Come, O Jesus, come!

Congregation:
Dawn on us from above. Raise us up in your love.
Awaken our hope with the day, and lead us in your way.
Come, O Jesus, come! Come, O Jesus, come!

Verses (soloist/Choir)
Week 1: Salvation is near, the day is at hand. Rise and put off the night.
Walk in the light of our God with hope. Awake, and greet the light!

Week 2: The day will soon come of justice and peace; the wolf and the lamb will share.
Repent and prepare the way in love. A child will lead us there!

Week 3: God is coming to all the world! Strengthen the weak! Rejoice!
The desert itself will blossom with joy. Lift up your heart and voice!

Week 4: Blessed are they who humbly trust your promise that they have heard.
Shine on us! May we live in peace, according to your Word.
