  Make us like the moon at night,
Gsus2   Asus4
  a mirror of the light.

  Grace and justice here collide,
Gsus2   Asus4
  to keep us through the night.
G              Bm           A

Mid section:
G   A   Bm   G   A   Bm
G                  A
  Sing now, sing into the dark,
        Bm
sing to lonely hearts,
oh, sing, 'let there be light.'
G                   A
  Sing out, when we see the Son,
        Bm
for our light has come
and the dead have come alive!

From the chaos You composed
A song that all creation knows
You took a mess and You made life
You said, let there be light

Word of God, God from the start
Re-creating human hearts
Make us like the moon at night
A mirror of the light

With just the Word set dark to flight
Sing to the world “let there be light!”

O, Word of God, let there be light!
Cut through the dark, O, let there be light
Come, risen Son, in glory bright
Come, Word of God, O, let there be light

We’re desperate for the break of dawn
To be warmed by risen Son
Grace and justice here collide
Keep us through the night

Sing now, sing into the dark
Sing to lonely hearts, sing
“Let there be light”
Sing out, when we see the Son
For our light has come
And the dead have come alive
