"Arise and Shine Forth"


About the Song:
I wasn’t planning to write a song for the 2012 LDS Mutual Theme this year, but this one almost plowed me over. This was a song I felt totally inspired to write– from start to finish. At the same time, I was also feeling promptings to share a little more of my light– in a new form– videos! It’s a little scary to share your light with others, but when you realize that it’s really His light that you’re sharing– it helps to take away the fear!

I now have a Videos page on my site. If you watch the one entitled, “Source of Inspiration” you’ll hear me singing the chorus of this song. I believe I had to write this song– as encouragement for me! Hopefully it will inspire you as well! Enjoy!



Lyrics:
Blessed to have a knowledge of the gospel
Born when truth and wisdom are so openly revealed
Born to know God’s light
that comes from God on high
and feel His light within me shine

I’m grateful for the knowledge God has given
But standing in a shadow will not prove it is of worth
Only holding it up high
will help the world know why
I’m gonna let my spirit shine!

I will arise
Shine my light unto the nations
I’ll arise,
Shine it for the world to see
I won’t let His light go hidden
It’s not meant for only me
I’ll arise and shine forth

Born within this chosen generation
I was born to witness of the truth
Living so you’ll see
what we truly believe
and let God’s light shine out through me!

I will arise
Shine my light unto the nations
I’ll arise,
Shine it for the world to see
I won’t let His light go hidden
It’s not meant for only me
I’ll arise and I will shine!
Arise and shine forth!
Arise and shine forth!
