Surge, Iluminare – Canticle from Morning Prayer

Arise, shine, for your light has come, *
and the glory of the Lord has dawned upon you.
For behold, darkness covers the land; * 
deep gloom enshrouds the peoples.
But over you the Lord will rise, * 
and his glory will appear upon you.
Nations will stream to your light, *
and kings to the brightness of your dawning.
Your gates will always be open; *
by day or night they will never be shut.
They will call you, The City of the Lord, * 
the Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
Violence will no more be heard in your land, * 
ruin or destruction within your borders.
You will call your walls, Salvation, * 
and all your portals, Praise.
The sun will no more be your light by day; *
by night you will not need the brightness of the moon.
The Lord will be your everlasting light, * 
and your God will be your glory.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; * 
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
