Bathroom Light Wiring

I need some help with this wiring issue. This is a replacement light fixture in the bathroom; the old one was taken down and the person doing it did not take note of the wiring.. The circuit has a single pole 2-way switch, two -110 outlets and the light itself (standard type with white, black, and ground wires. You can see the outlet box in the photo. On the right side is romex (gray) with the power supply and the romex (white) that leads to the switch. On the left is a piece of gray romex. When you connect the two pieces of gray romex, the outlets are energized. What is the proper way to connect in the white romex for the switch? Also, there were 3 wire nuts on this when it was taken down.

Thank you in advance for your help.

What is the wiring at the switch?

Nots: Homes haven't had 110 volts for about a hundred years. It is 120 volts.

Thank you very much for your help. I also took down another fixture and looked see how it was wired and able to get things to work.
