Arise! Shine, for your light has come,
the glory of the LORD has dawned upon you.
Though darkness covers the earth,
and thick clouds, the peoples,
Upon you the LORD will dawn,
and over you His glory will be seen.
Raise your eyes and look about;
they all gather and come to you—
Your sons from afar,
your daughters in the arms of their nurses.
The vessels of the coastlands are gathering,
with the ships of Tarshish in the lead,
To bring your children from afar ~ Isaiah 60: 1-2, 4, 9
