This Is the Day When Light Was First Created

Author: Fred Kaan, b. 1929 Hymnal: Gather Comprehensive #746 (1994) Meter: Scripture: Genesis 1 Lyrics: 1 This is the day when light was first created, Symbol and gift of order and design. In light is God's intention clearly stated, The break of day reveals his loving mind. 2 This is the day of our complete surprising, Repeat of Easter: Christ has come to life! Now is the feast of love's revolt and rising Against the rule of hell and death and grief. 3 We join to praise, with ev'ry race and nation, The God who with the world his Spirit shares; Strong wind of change and earth's illumination, Dispelling static thoughts and darkest fears. 4 This is the day of worship and of vision, Great birthday of the church in ev'ry land. Let Christians all confess their sad division And seek the strength again as one to stand. 5 We pray that this, the day of re-creation, May hallow all the week this is to come. Help us, O Lord, to lay a good foundation For all we do at work, at school, at home. Languages: English Tune Title: NORTHBROOK

Hallelujah! Sing and tell the story! Languages: English Tune Title: JOYFUL DARKNESS
