Let Your Light in Babe
by Robert Forster

Mrs Ellis said, “There's someone you should meet here in the church.”
I lent my back again, up against the church and went back inside
There was a woman and a child whom I'd not seen
And Mrs Ellis said, “The woman is a friend, new to this town, a mother and a child.”

Let your light in, babe
Let your light in, babe
Let your light in, babe
And don't you be afraid

I live by myself, a mile from the church and do my work at home
The house was a gift, given from a friend on whom I used to care
Named Silius Farm, though it's not a farm, but a house amidst trees
And Mrs Ellis said, but I stopped her and said, “They can stay with me.”

Let your light in, babe
Let your light in, babe
Let your light in, babe
And don't you be afraid

(later), Mrs Ellis said, ‘Now are mother and child well?”
I said, “They are well.
The mother is in bed. The child is at school and I must be rushing home!”

Let your light in, babe
Let your light in, babe
Let your light in, babe
And don't you be afraid

Let your light in
Let your light in
Let your light in
Let your light in

Let your light in, babe
Let your light in, babe
Let your light in, babe
Let your light in
