Let there be light,
Good light, strong light, warm light,
So that those walking in darkness
May see the way to go.
The light shines in the gloom,
And though the darkness rages on,
And at times may tower above us,
It cannot overcome it.
May the one who first brought radiance,
Rise upon us once more,
This light of the world –
Our golden dawn of resurrection.
You are our truth-filled hope,
Our bright home and our hand of rescue,
And the one who dispels our fear.
Send out your life-giving light we pray,
Warm our hearts and lead us with your presence,
And illuminate our path so that our steps
And our thoughts are guided by you today.
