Jesus Bids Us Shine

Jesus Bids Us Shine

Song lyrics to the children’s hymn ‘Jesus Bids Us Shine’ (also known as ‘Jesus Says to Shine’), written by B. War­ner (1868), music by Ed­win O. Ex­cell

Jesus bids us shine
With a pure, clear light,
Like a little candle
Burning in the night.
In this world of darkness
So let us shine—
You in your small corner,
And I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine,
First of all for Him;
Well He sees and knows it,
If our light grows dim.
He looks down from Heaven
To see us shine—
You in your small corner,
And I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine,
Then, for all around;
Many kinds of darkness
In the world are found—
Sin and want and sorrow;
So we must shine—
You in your small corner,
And I in mine.
