486. God, Whose Almighty Word

1 God 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!

2 Savior, you came to give
Those who in darkness live
Healing and sight,
Health to the sick in mind,
Sight to the inward blind:
Now to all human-kind
Let there be light!

3 Spirit of truth and love,
Life-giving, holy dove,
Speed on your flight!
Move on the water’s face
Bearing the lamp of grace
And, in earth’s darkest place,
Let there be light!

4 Gracious and holy 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!
