Brighten The Corner/This Little Light Of Mine
.
By Charles Gabriel & Ina Duley Ogden/Harry Dixon Loes

Verse 1
Do not wait until some deed
Of greatness you may do,
Do not wait to shed
Your light afar,
To the many duties ever
Near you now be true.
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
 
Chorus
Brighten the corner
Where you are,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
Someone far from harbor
You may guide across the bar,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
 
Verse 2
Just above are clouded skies
That you may help to clear,
Let not narrow self
Your way debar,
Tho’ into one heart alone
May fall your song of cheer,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
 
Chorus
Brighten the corner
Where you are,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
Someone far from harbor
You may guide across the bar,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
 
Verse 3
Here for all your talent
You may surely find a need,
Here reflect the Bright
and Morning Star,
Even from your humble hand
The bread of life may feed,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
 
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine,
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine,
Let it shine. 
 
Chorus
Brighten the corner
Where you are,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
Someone far from harbor
You may guide across the bar,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
 
Brighten the corner
Where you are,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
Someone far from harbor
You may guide across the bar,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
 
Someone far from harbor
You may guide across the bar
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
This little light of mine!
 
Reprise
Brighten the corner
Where you are,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
Someone far from harbor
You may guide across the bar,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
  
Brighten the corner
Where you are,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
Someone far from harbor
You may guide across the bar,
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
 
Someone far from harbor
You may guide across the bar
Brighten the corner
Where you are.
This little light of mine!
