Explanation:
I hope my Japanese font will appear properly on your screen...

"let there be" = "are"
"light" = "hikari"

I am a native speaker of Japanese. This phrase is from the Bible, isn't it? I have read it in both Japanese and English. To support my answer, I have referred to the dictionary that I indicated below.

I hope you will find my explanation helpful. Good luck!
