1 In this world of darkness let us ever be
Each a light that shineth clear and bright;
O the shining ray some wand'ring soul may see,
And be led to Christ, the Light.

Chorus:
Shine for Jesus! Shine for Jesus!
Never let your light grow dim;
Shine for Jesus! Shine for Jesus!
Souls will be led to follow him.

2 Never think your light so humble is and small
That it matters not if it should fade;
Let its radiance softly thro' the darkness fall,
That some soul from sin be stay'd. [Chorus]

3 E'en a little light can pierce the gloom afar;
It can shine for Jesus day by day;
It may serve to someone as a guiding star
That shall lead from sin away. [Chorus]
