Hymn/Song Information

Thou Whose eternal word Chaos and darkness heard




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;
O 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.


Blessèd and holy Three,
Glorious Trinity,
Wisdom, love, might;
boundless as ocean’s tide
Rolling in fullest pride,
Through the earth, far and wide,
Let there be light.

Thou, Who didst come to bring,
On Thy protecting wing,
Healing and sight,
Light to the inly blind;
Health to the sick in mind,
O now to all mankind
Let there be light.


Spirit of truth and love,
Life giving, Holy Dove,
Speed forth Thy flight;
Move o'er the waters’ face
By thine almighty grace,
And in earth’s darkest place
Let there be light.


O blessed and holy,
And glorious Trinity,
Wisdom, love, might;
boundless as ocean’s tide
Rolling in all its pride,
O'er the world far and wide,
Let there be light.


Holy and blessed Three,
Glorious Trinity,
Wisdom, Love, Might!
Boundless as ocean's tide
Rolling in fullest pride,
Through the earth, far and wide,
Let there be light!
