Jesus bids us shine
With a pure, clear light
Like a little candle
Burning in the night.
In this world of darkness
So let us shine
You in your small corner
And I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine
First of all for Him
Well He sees and knows it
If our light grows dim
He looks down from Heaven
To see us shine
You in your small corner
And I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine
Then, for all around
Many kinds of darkness
In the world are found
Sin and want and sorrow
So we must shine
You in your small corner
And I in mine.

The Gospel song, "Jesus Bids Us Shine" was written by Susan Warner in 1868, and the music composed by Edwin Excell.
