No. 142 Jesus Bids Us Shine

I have always considered this a beautiful children’s song.

Verse 1:
Jesus bids us shine with a clear, pure light,
Like a little candle, burning in the night.
In this world of darkness, we must shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.

Verse 2:
Jesus bids us shine first of all for Him;
Well He sees and knows it if our lights are dim..
He looks down from heaven, to see us shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.

Verse 3:
Jesus bids us shine, then, for all around;
Many kinds of darkness in this world are found;
Sin and want and sorrow; so we may shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.

  1. I love that song. I remember singing it in Sunday School as a child but it is still appropriate today, not just for the kiddos but for adults as well. We are are all called to shine our light.
