When you told that man about Jesus and his precious love
Did you let your light shine did you let your light shine
Oh, was it just a matter of a bunch of empty words
Did you let your light shine, did you let your light shine?

Well, don't you try to give it away if you don't have it yourself
Cause if your spirit is poverty stricken you can't give away such wealth
You must see clearly for you know the blind can't lead the blind
Did you let your light shine, did you let your light shine?

--- Instrumental ---

Well, auction always speaks much louder than your words would sound
Did you let your light shine did you let your light shine
For did you act out all you preached to beg it really count
Did you let your light shine, did you let your light shine?

Well, don't you try to give it away if you don't have it yourself
Cause if your spirit is poverty stricken you can't give away such wealth
You must see clearly for you know the blind can't lead the blind
Did you let your light shine, did you let your light shine?

Did you let your light shine, did you let your light shine?
This little light of mine, I'm a gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm a gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm a gonna let it shine
Did you let your light shine, did you let your light shine?
Did you let your light shine, did you let your light shine?...
