487. Thou, whose almighty Word

1 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!

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!

3 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!

4 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!
