     1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

     5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.(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!
