1 Let your light shine wheresoe’er you go,
Someone is looking to you!
Brighter each day let it gleam and glow,
Someone is looking to you!

Chorus:
Looking to you, yes, looking to you!
Let your light shine the darkness through;
O be faithful, be loyal, and true,
For someone is looking to you!

2 Someone is groping his way to God,
Someone is looking to you!
Following on where your feet have trod,
Someone is looking to you! [Chorus]

3 Someone your counsel will surely take,
Someone is looking to you!
And by your life his decision make,
Someone is looking to you! [Chorus]

4 Someone has almost accepted Him,
Someone is looking to you!
And may be lost if your light grows dim,
Someone is looking to you! [Chorus]
