1. Be a faithful witness for the Lord,
Shine for Jesus where you are;
You cannot an idle hour afford,
Just shine for Jesus where you are.

Refrain
Shine for Jesus where you are,
Shine for Jesus where you are;
Someone lost in sin you may guide to glory,
Shine for Jesus where you are.

2. Grace for ev’ry deed He will provide,
Shine for Jesus where you are;
There are those in need on ev’ry side,
Just shine for Jesus where you are. [Refrain]

3. In your home today let kindness glow,
Shine for Jesus where you are;
Tell someone of Christ and heal sin’s woe,
Just shine for Jesus where you are. [Refrain]
