Representative Text

1 We will shine for Christ our Saviour,
Though our years are very few,
We some little loving service,
Daily for our Lord may do.

Refrain:
We will shine for Christ our Saviour,
Each within his little sphere,
Shining ever for His glory,
Sending out love’s light and cheer.

2 We will shine for Christ our Saviour,
We will keep our lights aglow,
Teach us how to serve Him better,
As we older, wiser grow. [Refrain]

3 We will shine for Christ our Saviour,
Striving evermore to bring,
By our loving deeds the straying,
To the palace of our King. [Refrain]
