Be a light for Jesus

Representative Text

1 Be a light for Jesus, witness for your King,
Tell His love and mercy, of His goodness sing;
Scatter deeds of kindness as you take your way,
More and more like Jesus growing ev’ry day.

Be a light for Jesus, clearly, truly shine,
Bearing faithful witness to His power divine;
When temptation meets you closer press to Him,
When in touch with Jesus naught your light can dim.

2 Be a light for Jesus ev’rywhere you go,
When the shadows deepen still more brightly glow;
Like your blessed Master shine with radiance clear,
When the night is darkest sending rays of cheer. [Refrain]

3 Be a light for Jesus with His love aflame,
Daily bringing glory to His holy name;
With the Spirit’s guidance for Him ever live,
As to you He giveth unto others give. [Refrain]

4 Be a light for Jesus till your crown is won,
Then thro’ endless ages brighter than the sun!
You shall shine up yonder far beyond the sky,
Joyful witness bearing for your Lord on high. [Refrain]
