John Marriott

God the Father

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.

God the Son

Thou who did 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.

God the Holy Spirit

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.

God the Trinity

Blessed and Holy Three
Most glorious Trinity,
Wisdom, Love, Might,
Boundless as ocean’s tide
Rolling in fullest pride                                      
Through the world far and wide
Let there be light

John Marriott  1780-1825
