In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. (Genesis 1:1-5 ESV)
Hymn ELH 14:1 Father, Who the Light This Day
Father, who the light this day
Out of darkness didst create,
Shine upon us now, we pray,
While within Thy courts we wait;
Wean us from the works of night,
Make us children of the light.
Heavenly Father, through Your Word, all things came to be. Through that same Word, continue to enlighten my heart and help me to grow in my faith. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
