1 Live for the Lord who loves you so,
Happy and glad where’er you go;
Let your life shine each passing day,
Cheering some comrade on the way.

Refrain:
Shine out, shine out!
Loving service to the dear Lord give;
Shine out, shine out!
Show the Christ in Just the way you live.
Shine out, shine out!
For the sake of those you meet each day;
Be loyal and true, souls are looking to you;
Shine out for Jesus alway.

2 Faithfully walk thro’ life’s long ways,
Not for the sake of earthly praise;
Looking to him who hears each cry,
Striving the Lord to glorify. [Refrain]

3 Let your life shine right where you stand,
Waiting with joy your King’s command;
Then when his voice is truly heard,
Ready to do his blessed word. [Refrain]
