Jesus Bids Us Shine

Play

Jesus Bids us Shine is a children’s hymn with words by Susan Bogert Warner (1819-1885) and music by Edwin Othello Excell (1851-1921). It was first published in the children’s magazine The Little Corporal in 1868.

This children’s hymn is a favourite of Pastor Patrick Tan from Ebenezer BP Church, Melbourne, Australia. I would like to dedict this rendition of this hymn to him. God Bless.

Lyrics: Susan Warner
Music: Edwin O Excell

Jesus bids us shine with a clear, pure light,
Like a little candle burning in the night;
In this world of darkness, we must 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 is dim;
He looks down from heaven, sees us shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine, then, for all around,
Many kinds of darkness in this world abound:
Sin, and want, and sorrow-we must shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.
