'Hail, gladdening light' - Charles Wood
Or W H Harris's Lead Kindly Light? not really a motet, i suppose.
Te lucis ante omnia by? who? Wood? Bairstow? again, not really a motet.
Is there a suitable bit from the end of anyone's requiem? (luceat eis and so on)
Oooo the anthem that I absolutely LOVED from a confirmation service recently was "view me lord a work of thine" by... um... oh heck brain like a sieve, Richard Lloyd I think. Not about light, but it struck me as very appropriate. OTOH our Youth Choir sang "You Raise me up" by Westlife at the service where half of them were confirmed... that MIGHT not suit all churches ;-)
