Let There Be Light

“Let There Be” by Gungor from Ghosts Upon The Earth

This song feels particularly appropriate for the Advent season, as we contemplate how Jesus’ Incarnation signaled the arrival of the new creation, in which God would once again speak light into darkness.

“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.”  -Genesis 1:1-3

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,on them has light shone.” -Isaiah 9:2

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the LORD will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you.” -Isaiah 60:1-2

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” -John 1:1-5

“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” -2 Corinthians 4:6
