I Let My Light Shine

 

The perfect piece of prosperity
Intangible to all but me
Designed to bring quiet liberty
This little light of mine

Creative genius at its best
Not at all better than the rest
Yet for me equals happiness
This little light of mine

Given by grace-not happenstance
My personal praise, poem, and dance
Without which I’d not stand a chance
This little light of mine

I shine for all the world to see
My inner strength and dark beauty
For others to see their way to free
This little light of mine

You see, this little light of mine
Was made by God’s loving design
To help someone else walk the line
This little light of mine

So I let my light shine, shine, shine
I let it shine! Oh! Let it shine;
There may be someone down in the valley
Trying to get home.
