Representative Text

1 If you cannot be a great light shining
In some lofty place that all may see,
Do not waste your moments in repining,
Like a little candle you may be.

Refrain:
Always, always shining,
Clearly, brightly shining;
Would you help to fill the dark world with light?
Make your corner bright.

2 Like the nightingale you may not warble,
Thrilling every ear the songs you sing,
But some lonely heart you may make happy,
If you sing to please your Savior King. [Refrain]

3 Many little raindrops make a shower,
Each one patter softly in its place,
Falling on the thirsty fields and flowers,
Scatter thus kind words and deeds of grace. [Refrain]
