Need help with pot light wiring


Hi, I removed a flourescent light fixture in my basement and did not pay attention to wiring, silly me, well I have three sets of wires at this point, wire from the panel, wire from the switch and a wire I am guessing is for a receptacle. All these were connected in the light fixture and I took them out to put in pot lights and now I am mixed up with how to connect all these wires back. Wires are black and white and copper. Any help would be much appreciated

The wire from the panel and the wire to the receptacle go color to color, the white from the switch goes to the two blacks already spliced together, the black from the switch goes to the fixture along with a white that was previously spliced together. all the grounds get spliced together.
