Lyrics: Even one light can shine in the darkness,
Giving us hope as it shows us the way.
Grateful we sing of the Saints gone before us
Who planted the seeds that we harvest today.

Brought from all lands by the hand of the Father,
Gathered as youth, we will hold to the rod.
Trusting the plan that was laid out before us,
Valiant we stand in the armour of God.

Arise and shine like a light upon a hill,
Stand for truth, firmly rooted, sure and still.
Let faith hold fast to make hearts pure and lead the way
Like a beacon in the night until the bright of day.

Raising our eyes to the spires of the Temple,
Heavenly power upon us is poured.
Flowing through us, it will lift ev’ry nation,
sharing the light of the House of the Lord.

Arise and shine like a light upon a hill,
Stand for truth, firmly rooted, sure and still.
Let faith hold fast to make hearts pure and lead the way
Like a beacon in the night until the bright of day.

Pressing forward with faith
and the love of our Saviour,
Lifting the burdens that we see,
As we walk in the light of the love of the Lord,
He will shine through you and me!

We will arise and shine like a light upon a hill,
Stand for truth, firmly rooted, sure and still.
Let faith hold fast to make hearts pure and lead the way
Like a beacon in the night until the bright of day.

For God remembers still His promise made of old
That he on Zion’s hill Truth’s standard would unfold!
Her light should there attract the gaze
Of all the world in latter days.

A light upon a hill!
