J. Marriott

THOU, whose almighty Word

Chaos 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.


Thou, who didst 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 waters’ face,

Bearing the lamp of grace,

And in earth’s darkest place

Let there be light.


Holy and blessed Three,

Glorious Trinity,

Wisdom, Love, Might;

Boundless as ocean’s tide,

Rolling in fullest pride,

Through the world, far and wide,

Let there be light.
