Ceiling Light Fixture

Hello,
I removed old light fixture without taking note of how the wires were connected. I know. What was I thinking?
Now I'm left with two cables coming into the junction box; one has a black and white wire and the other cable has a black, white, red and ground wire.

The switch that controls the light fixture is in the same junction box as a GFI outlet (if that makes any difference) and the breaker for the switch is off but the outlet still functions (separate breakers, I imagine?)

I'm just not sure how to configure all the wires in the ceiling to my new fixture. I've changed fixtures before, installed switches and outlets but this one is baffling me. HELP!!!!

Thank you!!!!!

Try black of 2-conductor cable to black of 3-conductor cable.
Red to black of the light.
All whites including light connected together.
