lyrics

Take the candle from the table light the lamp
Take the lamp, please go outside and look around
When you find the one that's missing from the other ninety-nine
Please take me home and relight my little candle

'Cause this little light of mine I didn't let it shine
This little light of mine I have failed to let it shine
But this new light of mine, I promise, I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

I won't hide it in my Bible, I won't hide it around my neck
I won't hide it in the church pew, I won't hide it in my head
I won't hide it anywhere I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

Cause you took the candle from the table lit the lamp
you took the lamp and went outside and looked around
and when you found the one that was missing from the other ninety-nine
you took me home and relit my little candle

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

I won't let satan blow it out,
no I'm gonna let it shine
I won't let anyone blow it out
no I'm gonna let it shine
Oh I myself will not blow it out again,
I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine let it shine let it shine
