There's no darkness in your eyes
There's no question in Your mind
God Almighty
God of mercy
There's no hiding from Your face
There's no striving in Your grace
God of mercy
God Almighty

Let there be light
Open the eyes of the blind
Purify our hearts in your fire
Breathe in us we pray
Jesus have your way

Interlude

Verse 2

There's no borders in Your love
No division in Your heart
God of heaven
God of freedom
There's no taking back the cross
No regret in what it cost
God of freedom
God of heaven

Chorus 2 & 3

Let there be light
Open the eyes of the blind
Purify our hearts in your fire
Breathe in us we pray
Let there be light
Open our eyes to your heart
Desperate just to know who you are
Shine in us we pray
Jesus have your way

Instrumental

Bridge

Good news embracing the poor
Comfort for all those who mourn
For the broken hearted, we sing louder
Release from prison and shame
Oppression turning to praise
For every captive, sing louder
Restoring sight to the blind
Breaking the curse of the night
For all in darkness, sing louder
Proclaiming freedom for all
This is the day of the Lord
Beauty for ashes

Verse 3

Let the light that shines above
Become the light that shines in us
There's no darkness in Your way
So have Your way
Lord have Your way

Let There Be Light - In the Bible [Verses & Devotional]

We are reminded in the song Let There Be Light by Hillsong Worship that God is Almighty and full of mercy. He is the God of heaven and freedom, and His love knows no borders. We are called to open our eyes to His heart and to be desperate to know who He is. 

The Bible tells us in Isaiah 61:1-3, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.” 

God is calling us to proclaim freedom for all and to bring good news to the poor. He is calling us to bind up the brokenhearted and to comfort all who mourn. He is calling us to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and to give those who mourn a beautiful headdress instead of ashes. 

The song Let There Be Light reminds us that God is calling us to be the light that shines in the darkness. We are called to open our eyes to His heart and to be desperate to know who He is. We are called to proclaim freedom for all and to bring good news to the poor. We are called to bind up the brokenhearted and to comfort all who mourn. 

Let us open our eyes to God’s heart and be desperate to know who He is. Let us proclaim freedom for all and bring good news to the poor. Let us bind up the brokenhearted and comfort all who mourn. Let us be the light that shines in the darkness and let us proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. Let there be light!
