In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
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.
And God said, let there be light:
and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good:
and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light Day,
and the darkness he called Night.
And the evening and the morning were the first day.
A candle is lit and the light is passed from person to person
A Chaplain says
God said, Let there be lights in the firmament
of the heaven to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for signs,
and for seasons,
and for days, and years.
