Let There be Light


Thou whose Almighty Word

Chaos and darkness heard

And took their flight

Hear us we humbly pray

And where the Gospel’s day

Sheds not its glorious ray

Let there be Light!

Thou who did’nt come to bring

On Thy redeeming wing

Healing and sight

Health to the sick in mind

Sight to the inly blind

Oh, now to all mankind

Let there be Light!

Spirit of truth and love

Life giving Holy Dove

Speed forth Thy flight!

Move on the water’s face

Bearing the lamp of grace

And in earth’s darkest place

Let there be Light!

Blessed and Holy Thee

The glorious Trinity

Wisdom, love, might!

Move on the water’s face

Boundless as ocean’s tide

Rolling in fullest pride

Through the earth far and wide

Let there be Light!
