The first creation of God, in the works of the days, was the light of sense; the last was the light of reason; and his Sabbath work, ever since, is the illumination of the spirit.
Walk boldly and wisely in the light thou hast; there is a hand above will help thee on.
Walk in the light and thou shalt see thy path, though thorny, bright; for God, by grace, shall dwell in thee, and God himself is light.
We should render thanks to God for having produced this temporal light, which is the smile of heaven and the joy of the world, spreading it like a cloth of gold over the face of the air and earth, and lighting it as a torch, by which we may behold his works.
Science and art may invent splendid anodes of illuminating the apartments of the opulent; but these are all poor and worthless compared with the light which the sun pours freely, impartially, over hill and valley, which kindles daily the eastern and western sky; and so the common lights of reason and conscience and love are of more worth and dignity than the rare endowments which give celebrity to a few.
Moral light is the radiation of the diviner glory.
The light of nature, the light of science, and the light of reason, are but as darkness, compared with the divine light which shines only from the word of God.
Light is the symbol of truth.
Hail! holy light, offspring of heaven, first born!
Before the sun, before the heavens thou wert, and at the voice of God, as with a mantle didst invest the rising world of waters dark and deep won from the void and formless infinite.
Light is the shadow of God.
The eye's light is a noble gift of heaven! All beings live from light; each fair created thing, the very plants, turn with a joyful transport to the light.
Light! Nature's resplendent robe; without whose vesting beauty all were wrapt in gloom.
