1 Jesus bids us shine with a pure, clear light,
like a little candle burning in the night.
In this world of darkness so let us shine -
you in your small corner, and I in mine.

2 Jesus 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.

3 Jesus bids us shine, then, for all around;
many kinds of darkness in the world are found;
sin and want and sorrow; so we must shine -
you in your small corner, and I in mine.
