This little light of mine 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.

The light that shines is the light of love, Lights the darkness from above It shines on me and it shines on you And shows what the power of love can do I’m gonna shine my light both far and near, I’m gonna shine my light both bright and clear Where there’s a dark corner in this land I’m gonna let my little light shine. This little light of mine… On Monday He gave me the gift of love Tuesday, peace came from above On Wednesday He told me to have more faith On Thursday He gave me a little more grace Friday, He told me just to watch and pray Saturday He told me just what to say On Sunday, He gave me the power divine To let my little light shine.
