Gospel Medley: This Little Light of Mine...
The Seekers Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

Light that shines is the light of love
Hides the darkness from above
Shines on me and it shines on you
Shows you what the power of love can do
Shine my light both bright and clear
Shine my light both far and near
In every dark corner that I find
Let my little light shine
Monday gave me the gift of love
Tuesday peace came from above
Wednesday told me to have more faith
Thursday gave me a little more grace
Friday told me to watch and pray
Saturday told me just what to say
Sunday gave me the power divine
To let my little light shine




(Chorus twice)
Shine, shine, shine, shine, shine
