Charlie Landsborough – Shine Your Light lyrics

Shine your light against the dark
Stand upright and make your mark
Do your best wherever you may be
And shine your light for me
Long ago when I was just
A boy of tender years
My father told me life's a road
Paved with joy and tears
And as you travel you must choose
Between what's right and wrong
Remember sin is giving in
For Heaven's sake be strong
As I grew beyond my teens
The world began to press
My father's words began to fade
Lost to selfishness
And after years of walking down
The wrong side of the track
One night I cried and deep inside
My father's words came back
My father said that kindness is
The light of God in man
So I was told to shine like gold
On everyone I can
I changed my ways and did my best
To right the wrong I'd done
I settled down and in a year
God blessed us with a son
Now he's barely nine years old
A learner on life's way
He wonders why a day goes by
He doesn't hear me say
Do your best wherever you may be
And shine your light
Shine your light
Do your best wherever you may be
And shine your light for me
