The Bright and Morning Star Earth in darkness The universe in quiet slumber
The infinite magnificence of the sun The Passion of Creation is here
And then God said, “Let there be light! Oh, radiant light!” Lord, the darkness is as light to you Light as bright as you
I awake and I am with You Dawn is here
