1 Arise, shine out, your light has come, unfolding city of our dreams. On distant hills a glory gleams: the new creation has begun. 2 Above earth's valleys, thick with night, high on your walls the dawn appears, and history shall dry its tears, as nations march toward your light. 3 From walls surpassing time and space unnumbered gates, like open hands, shall gather gifts from all the lands and welcome all the human race. 4 The sounds of violence shall cease as dwellings of salvation rise to sparkle in eternal skies from avenues of praise and peace. 5 The dancing air shall glow with light, and sun and moon give up their place, when love shines out of every face, our good, our glory, and delight.
