Arise. Shine. An Epiphany Mediation

Arise! Shine! Your light has come; the Lord’s glory has shone upon you.

Though darkness covers the earth and gloom the nations, the Lord will shine upon you.

God’s glory will appear over you.

Nations will come to your light and kings to your dawning radiance.

Lift up your eyes and look all around: they are all gathered; they have come to you.

Your sons will come from far away, and your daughters on caregivers’ hips.

Then you will see and be radiant; your heart will tremble and open wide,

Your gates will be open continually; day and night they won’t close,

Violence will no longer resound throughout your land, nor devastation or destruction within your borders.

You will call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.

The sun will no longer be your light by day, nor will the moon shine for illumination by night.

The Lord will be your everlasting light; your God will be your glory.

Your sun will no longer set; your moon will no longer wane.

The Lord will be an everlasting light for you and your days of mourning will be ended.

From Isaiah 60 (CEB)
