    Verse 1
    Thou whose almighty word
    Choas and darkness heard,
    And took their flight,
    Hear us, we humbly pray,
    And where the gospel day
    Sheds not its glorious ray
    Let there be light!

    Verse 2
    Thou who didst come to bring
    On Thy redeeming wing
    Healing and sight,
    Health to the sick in mind,
    Sight to the inly blind,
    O now to all mankind
    Let there be light!

    Verse 3
    Spirit of truth and love,
    Life-giving, holy Dove,
    Speed forth Thy flight:
    Move on the water's face,
    Spreading the beams of grace,
    And in earth's darkest place
    Let there be light!

    Verse 4
    Blessed and holy Three,
    Glorious Trinity,
    Grace, love and might,
    Boundless as ocean's tide
    Rolling in fullest pride,
    Through the world far and wide
    Let there be light!
