Shine On

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Happily

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.

[Chorus]

Shine on, shine on, shine on bright and clear;

Shine on, shine on now the day is here.
