Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in Heaven. Matthew 5:16
Words: Jennie Wilson, in Song-Land Messenger No. 2, edited by Anthony J. Showalter, John S. Hendricks et al. (Dallas, Texas & Dalton, Georgia: Showalter-Lincoln & A. J. Showalter, 1898), number 271.

Shine Thou thro’ my life, O Savior,
With a pure and unfailing light;
Let Thy righteousness be reflected,
In a radiance clear and bright.
Let Thy glorious light, O Savior,
Thro’ my life in this dark world shine,
Leading souls from the ways of evil
To the pathways of joy divine.
May the words that my lips shall utter
Be such words as will honor Thee;
With Thy spirit of loving kindness,
May they e’er richly laden be.
May Thy light thro’ my daily actions
Bless some heart by its constant glow;
And some soul unto Thee draw closer,
All Thy fullness of grace to know.
Where the erring in darkness wander,
May the rays of Thy saving love
Through my life brightly shine to guide them
To Thy kingdom of light above.
