You Can't Be A Beacon (If Your Light Don't Shine)


1st Chorus:
(F) You can't be a beacon if your light don't shine.
You can't be a beacon if your light don't (G7) shine.
There's a little light in (F7) all of us by (Bb) God's (F) design,
And you can't be a beacon if your (C7) light don't (F) shine.

(F) How can you ask for truth when you (Bb) do not truthful (F) live?
How can you ask (Dm) forgiveness when you (Gm) don't (C7) forgive?
(F) I don't mean to bring you down or (Bb) speak to you (F) unkind.
But you can't be a beacon if your (Gm7)  light (C7) don't (F) shine.

1st Chorus

How can you ask a child to be honest and true,
When he can only judge what's right by what he sees in you?
How can you offer vision yet walk around blind?
You can't be a beacon if your light don't shine.

1st Chorus

May God's love surround you, may you find a brighter day.
May He grant you the peace you seek in every way.
God's light burns in every life, yours and mine,
And you can be a beacon if you let it shine.

2nd Chorus:
You can be a beacon if you let it shine,
You can be a beacon if you let it shine.
There's a little light in all of us by God's design,
And you can be a beacon if you let it shine.
