This Little Light Of Mine

Album: The Four & Only Seekers (1964)
  • This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
    This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
    This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
    Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

    Light that shines is the light of love,
    Hides the darkness from above,
    Shines on me and it shines on you,
    Shows you what the power of love can do.
    Shine my light both bright and clear,
    Shine my light both far and near,
    In every dark corner that I find,
    Let my little light shine.
    Monday gave me the gift of love,
    Tuesday peace came from above,
    Wednesday told me to have more faith,
    Thursday gave me a little more grace,
    Friday told me to watch and pray,
    Saturday told me just what to say,
    Sunday gave me the power divine
    To let my little light shine.
    (Chorus twice)
    Shine, shine, shine, shine, shine. Writer/s: Bob Gibson
