176. 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's day
Sheds not its glorious ray,
Let there be light.

2. Thou, who didst come to bring
In 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 o'er 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,
Wisom, Love, Might!
Boundless as ocean's tide,
Rolling in fullest prde,
Thro' the world far and wide
Let there be light.
