Let There Be Light
© 2014 Tom D Blakely
Before time began
In a world without form
All was lifeless and empty and dark.
Then the Word of God
Spoke and there became light
By the Word of the Lord life was born.
Lord You gave us life… gave us light
Where did we fail You Lord?
We could walk with You… talk with You
Show us the way back Lord!
In the mists of time
We lost every good thing
When we chose to ignore You and sin.
Lord have mercy now
Through the death of Your Son
May Your Light shine on us once again…
‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him,
and without Him nothing was made that was made.
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
And the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness did not comprehend it.’
