LYRICS BY ROBERT HUNTER

Under the elm

Inside the night

The story began

Let there be light

Let there be reason

Let there be right

Let there be seasons

Let there be sight

Let there be light

Let there be rain

Let there be happiness

Let there be pain

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be vision

Souls to redeem

Hearts to be broken

Let there be dream

Let there be beauty

And ugliness too

Truth, love and duty

The sparkle of dew

Let there be light

Let there be rain

Let there be happiness

Let there be pain

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be violence

Fang and the claw

Let there be silence

And let there be law

Let there be sunset

Let there be dawn

Let there be moonbeams

To shine down upon

Let there be light

Let there be rain

Let there be happiness

Let there be pain

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

Let there be light

## Sounds of the Universe

*Let There Be Light* shines through the aurora borealis (see *This One Hour* for descriptions of creating sound from solar wind data) and the Sombrero Galaxy (which also appeared in *Who Stole the Show* - see *Slow Joe Rain* for descriptions of sonifying the spectra of galaxies).
