Tune by Heinrich Isaac c.1490.

Text by Martin Optiz c.1628.

English trans:

Arise and shine in splendor,
Let night to day surrender;
They light is drawing near,
Above thee day is beaming
In matchless beauty gleaming;
The glory of the Lord is here.

Lift up your eyes in wonder;
See, nations gather yonder,
They all come to be free.
The world has heard your story,
Your sons come to your glory,
And daughters haste your light to see.
