"Let There Be Light! "Thus spoke the Lord;
thus we were made and thus restored.
Christ's conquering Word created all;
our shinning hope: his sovereign call.
Now Christ has summoned us to speak
his mighty Word, though we are weak.
So let our feet be Gospel-shod,
and all the power belong to God.
Christ speaks and freedom is conferred;
he reigns triumphant in his Word
to frustrate Satan's fatal might,
and lead his captives into light.
Come, broken hearted, take good cheer;
come, crushed in spirit, do not fear.
The Lord who reigns in blinding light
dwells with the lowly and contrite.
Now let us set the world aflame;
proclaim the glory of his name!
His light be everywhere adored,
and every creature own him Lord!
