1Jesus bids us shine
With a pure, clear light;
Like a little candle
Burning in the night:
In this world of darkness,
So we must shine–
You in your small corner,
And I in mine.
2Jesus bids us shine,
First of all for Him;
Well He sees and knows it
If our light grows dim:
He looks down from heaven,
To see us shine–
You in your small corner,
And I in mine.
3Jesus bids us shine,
Then, for all around;
Many kinds of darkness
In the world abound,–
Sin and want and sorrow;
So we must shine–
You in your small corner,
And I in mine. Amen.
Matthew5:16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
