Christmas Eve 2018

Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

Isaiah 60: 1-3 (NIV)

Text: Johann Rist 1641 – Translation John Troutbeck 1873
Music: Johann Schop 1641 – Arrangement Johann Sebastian Bach 1734
