1 Let your light shine for the Saviour to-day,
Out in the desert of sin's dreary way;
Guiding the wanderer into the fold,
Where there are blessings and pleasures untold.
Let your light shine for the Saviour to-day,
Let it shine brightly along the dark way;
Keep your lamp burning where'er sin is found,
Shining for Jesus the whole world around.
2 High on the mountain now let it shine clear,
Warning the careless that danger is near;
Bidding them come unto him who will bless
All who believe and his dear name confess. [Chorus]
3 Over the ocean, across the dark wave,
Let it shine brightly some lost one to save;
Tell them of Jesus who giveth sweet rest
Unto the weary who lean on his breast. [Chorus]Source: The Golden Sheaf: a collection of choice hymns and songs especially designed for Sunday schools, loyal worker's meetings, prayer and social services (Enl. ed.) #130
