Representative Text

1 Are you shining for Jesus your Savior?
Are you shining each step of the way,
So that others now lost in the darkness
May be led to the Savior today?

Shine on, shine on for Jesus
Thro’ life’s long darksome night;
Shine on, shine on for Jesus
Till dawns the morning light;
Shine on, shine on for Jesus
In this dark land of woe;
Shine on for Christ, your Savior,
Ev’rywhere you go.

2 Do you trust him for heavenly guidance?
Are you looking to Jesus in pray’r,
So that all who are groping in blindness
May behold your light burning and fair? [Refrain]

3 Keep your lamp trimmed and burnished, dear brother,
Hold a torch o’er the boisterous wave,
Throw the life-line to poor whip-wrecked sailors,
Lend a hand your lost comrades to save. [Refrain]
