...help me do some good deed while I live.
Let my life be a light shining out through the night...
Let my life be a light to some soul!Give me wisdom and power every day, every hour... ...help me drink from the fountain above.
Guide my footsteps all right through the dark, stormy night...
...shining out to the world as a guide! Help me rescue someone sinking down with no hope...
...that in heaven we shall ever abide!
Let my life be a light shining out in the night.
May I help struggling ones to the fold!
Spreading cheer everywhere to the sad and alone,
Let my life be a light to some soul.
