     1 Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. 2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me; 3 And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified. 4 Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the LORD, and my work with my God. 5 And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength. 6 And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

     7 Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.(KJV)

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, 
Oh, now to all mankind 
Let there be light! 

3. Spirit of Truth and Love, 
Lifegiving, holy Dove, 
Speed forth Thy flight; 
Move on the water’s 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, 
Thro’ the earth, far and wide, 
Let there be light!
