4. Your Light Is Needed

1 Do you often grow discouraged with the little you can do?
Does the world with all its burdens have no seeming need of you?
Do not feel yourself forgotten in the wondrous plan divine,
Your light is needed—let it shine.

Refrain:
Your light is needed, let it shine.
Your light is needed, let it shine.
Your light is needed, let it shine;
Thro’ the dark and stormy night,
Keep its rays serenely bright,
Your light is needed—let it shine.

2 In the barren, thorny places plant a flower, sing a song,
You may guide the lost and weary to the Arm secure and strong;
Often-times a single jewel has disclosed the hidden mine,—
Your light is needed—let it shine. [Refrain]

3 Many hearts are sad and lonely, many need a helping hand;
By a word, a deed of kindness you may help some one to stand;
For a nobler, greater mission never murmur or repine,—
Your light is needed—let it shine. [Refrain]
