224. 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 blessèd Three,
Glorious Trinity,
Wisdom, love, might,
Boundless as ocean tide
Rolling in fullest pride,
Through the world, far and wide,
Let there be light!
