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.
