Lightbulb Basic Switch Wiring

Help:

It has been a long time since I installed a badic light switch into a new construction.

Two wires from light
Two wires from power

Are the hot (black) wires run through the switch or are the white wires run through the switch?

I believe the balck go to the switch and the white are connected to one another outside the switch.

Please let me kmow if I have it right.

I have a PaceMaker and would hate to setuo the wrong wiring.

Thanks in advance for this "simple", yet potentially damgerous, problem that I ahve/
