“Arise, shine; for your light has come,
And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light
For this reason it says,
And arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.”
“No longer will you have the sun for light by day,
Nor for brightness will the moon give you light;
But you will have the Lord for an everlasting light,
And your God for your glory.
Clothe yourself in your strength, O Zion;
Clothe yourself in your beautiful garments,
O Jerusalem, the holy city;
For the uncircumcised and the unclean
Will no longer come into you.
“But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall.
If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.
The people who walk in darkness
Will see a great light;
Those who live in a dark land,
The light will shine on them.
“Then your light will break out like the dawn,
And your recovery will speedily spring forth;
And your righteousness will go before you;
The glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
“The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light,
And those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death,
Upon them a Light dawned.”
Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Because of the tender mercy of our God,
With which the Sunrise from on high will visit us,
A Light of revelation to the Gentiles,
And the glory of Your people Israel.”
There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.
This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.
Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”
I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.
so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world,
And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever.
