Genesis 1:1-5 (Listen)

The Creation of the World

1:1 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. (ESV)


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 1 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 41:
Wondrous King, All Glorious

— Organ Audio

1. Wondrous King, all glorious, 
Sovereign Lord victorious, 
O, receive our praise with favor! 
From thee welled God’s kindness 
Though we in our blindness 
Strayed from thee, our blessed Saviour. 
Strengthen thou, 
Help us now; 
Let our tongues be singing, 
Thee our praises bringing. 


2. Heavens, spread the story 
Of our Maker’s glory, 
All the pomp of earth obscuring. 
Sun, thy rays be sending, 
Thy bright beams expending, 
Light to all the earth assuring. 
Moon and star, 
Praise afar 
Him who glorious made you; 
The vast heavens aid you. 


3. O my soul, rejoicing, 
Sing, thy praises voicing, 
Sing, with hymns of faith adore him! 
All who here have being, 
Shout, your voices freeing, 
Bow down in the dust before him. 
He is God 
Sabaoth; 
Praise alone the Saviour, 
Here and there for ever. 


4. Hallelujahs render 
To the Lord most tender, 
Ye who know and love the Saviour. 
Hallelujahs sing ye, 
Ye redeemed, O, bring ye 
Hearts that yield him glad behavior. 
Blest are ye 
Endlessly; 
Sinless there for ever, 
Ye shall laud him ever.
