Thy Light is Come

The double “l” in wonderful is not a typo; that was the spelling in 1888.

Verse 1:
Give thanks unto God who is able and willing
To save to the uttermost all who draw near;
To send out His light, their redemption fulfilling,
While his wondrfull love shall dispel ev’ry fear.

Refrain:
Arise! arise!
Arise, for thy light is come!
Arise! arise!
Arise for thy light is come!
The light of truth
To lead thee home;
Arise! Oh! arise, for thy light has come!

Verse 2:
Sweet hope in the home of the drunkard hath risen,
Where the darkness of sorrow too long held its reign;
He hath cast off his fetters, and burst from his prison,
And the sunshine of joy fills his heart once again.

Verse 3:
Then banish the wine-cup, and seek for a blessing
From Him in whose might you alone can prevail;
For they who will seek Him, their weakness confessing,
Shall have strength to resist all the foes who assail.

Miss M. E. Servoss/Dr. H. R. Palmer
