A candle burning slowly flickers out,
Another chance of hope is gone – fades away.
A glimpse of light I can bring,
If only into lives of those who long to see.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,
Shining over all I see, shining into all I do.
This little light of mine, I’ll take it forth and shine,
Shining for the world to see, in all of me.
I am not my own, I’m yours,
This light I have because you gave me.
Let me shine so they can see that
All I am is what you made me.
Sweet surrender, I will give my all up for you,
Take my life, and let me shine.
Let it shine, let it shine,
Let it shine.
