William Mercer Wilson
Let there be light. Jehovah said,
And primal darkness heard and fled
Then, as the waters from the land
He parted with almighty hand
Light ridged the mountain chain with gold
Light through the vales in glory rolled
Light silvered ocean, lake and stream
Light made the pall-like vapors gleam
Light shone the forest vistas through
Light gave the sky it's burning blue
Light fell in life-awakening showers
On torpid leaves and sleeping flowers
And all the universe waxed bright
Robed in it's makers effluence-light.
There is a darkness of the mind
As thick as dark, as undefined
Ere God had said, Let there be light.
But as creations morning burst
On chaos, and the gloom dispersed
So does the Day star from on high.
Light to the darkened soul supply
As that which wrapped the world in night
So does God's grace, that ray divine
On the beseeching sinner shine
Dispelling from the soul despair
And shedding floods of glory there
Oh, when there's doubt and gloom within
Black fruits of un-repented sin
Search thou this book, and searching pray
So shall thy sin be washed away
So shall a beam illuminate thy night
From him who said, Let there be light.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
