104. Thou, whose almighty word

6.6.4.6.6.6.4

Moscow:

Felice de Giardini, 1769

John Marriott, 1813

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!

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!

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!

Holy and blessèd Three,

Glorious Trinity,

Wisdom, Love, Might;

Boundless as ocean's tide,

Rolling in fullest pride,

Through the world, far and wide,

Let there be light!

Amen.
