JESUS BIDS US SHINE

G                           D7
Jesus bids us shine, with a clear, pure light,
                     G
Like a little candle burning in the night;
                          C       G
In this world of darkness we must shine,
                  G7          D7   G
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 is 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 this world abound-
Sin, and want, and sorrow: so we must shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine, as we work for Him
Bringing those that wander from the paths of sin;
He will ever help us if we shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.
