Shine On
, no. 144


1. My light is but a little one,My light of faith and prayer;But lo! it glows like God’s great sun,For it was lighted there.
[Chorus]Shine on, shine on, shine on bright and clear;Shine on, shine on now the day is here.
2. I may not hide my little light;The Lord has told me so.’Tis given me to keep in sight,That all may see it glow.
