Let your light shine forth in the darkness
Of a world oppressed by sin,
On human hearts that need your help
To lighten the gloom within.

Refrain

Let your light so shine,
Let your light so shine
That they may see your good works,
And glorify God in Heav’n.

Let your lips speak forth the praises
Of the Christ who set you free,
From slavish fear and sinful life
To His joyous liberty.

Refrain

Let your life reveal the riches
Of a soul inspired by love,
That others, too, may catch the strain
And honor your God above.

Refrain

Let your love show forth in service
That the world in you may see
The living Christ pervades your life,
His Spirit abiding free.
