OH! AFRICA, ARISE AND SHINE

Composed and Written by Prof. Joseph Israel James


Oh! Africa the beloved of God
You have stayed too long without light
Africa the darkness in you is worth action
Many have thought you are out of God's plan
But God who brought light into existence
Says today! Africa! Arise and Shine for your light is come
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

Oh! Africa your Day is come
Many have waited to see your light shine, but...
Many have prayed, cried and agonized to see a change, but...
Many have forgotten about Africa
But God who brought light into existence
Says today! Africa! Arise and Shine for your light is come
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

Oh! Africa where are you!
Do not hide any more for someone cares!
Africa! Oh! Africa! I say there is light from above
Africa is the beloved of God in prophecy
But God who brought light into existence
Says today! Africa! Arise and Shine for your light is come
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

Oh! Africa it is your time to laugh
Oh! Africa you shall not die but live
Africa! the blood of Christ is pouring upon you
Africa! You cannot be lost nor perish
But God who brought light into existence
Says today! Africa! Arise and Shine for your light is come
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

Africa behold your light is now come!
You looked around for help, here is it,
Africa here is the end of your suffering
Africa it is your time to surface and laugh
But God who brought light into existence
Says today! Africa! Arise and Shine for your light is come
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

Africa!! Africa!! Oh! Africa!!! we thank God for you!
Africa is full of light by faith
Africa is now saved by the grace of God
Oh! Africa, Arise and Shine
But God who brought light into existence
Says today! Africa! Arise and Shine for your light is come
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
