Hymn/Song Information

LET THERE BE LIGHT




On earth was darkness spread,
One boundless night;
“Let there be light,” God said,—
And there was light!


There hung a deeper gloom
O’er quick and dead,
But Jesus burst the tomb,
And darkness fled.


God by His word arrayed
Darkness with light;
God by His Son displayed
Day without night.


For thee, O man, arose
Creation's ray;
For thee, too, brighter glows
Salvation’s day.


The beams first poured on earth
For mortals shone;
The light of later birth
Immortals own.
