    Shine On

    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.
