Does The Light Still Shine?
Words by Ray Boltz, Music by Steve Millikan and Ray Boltz
He used to run the mission
This old friend of mine
And it stood down on the corner
Underneath a neon sign
Had a cross that lit up heaven
And the message "Jesus Saves"
And each week at the old folks' home
His question was the same
CHORUS:
Does the light still shine?
Does the light still shine?
Is it bright enough
For the lost to find?
Does the light still shine?
Now how was I to tell him
They tore the old sign down,
Explain about electric codes,
And zoning in the town
I knew that it would break his heart,
I didn't want to lie
So I just held his hand and smiled
When he asked me the last time,
CHORUS
In a quiet ceremony
I began to understand
After all the testimonies
For this ordinary man
He took them in, he gave them food
He taught them of God's grace
And as they spoke
I saw a light
Shining on each face
And you may not believe it
But I tell you that's it true
The light kept growing brighter
Until it filled the room
I heard a voice say,
This, my friend, is what
I was speaking of...
When you touch someone in Jesus' name
There shines the light of love
Oh the light still shines
Oh the light still shines
Yes it's bright enough
For the lost to find
Oh the light still shines
Oh the light still shines
Yes the light still shines
And it's bright enough
For the lost to find
Oh the light still shines
Yes the light still shines
