This Little Light of Mine
from the MMF! Songbook



This Little Light of Mine is a scripture song based Negro spiritual whose text resounds with the joy of showing God's perfect love in the midst of each and every challenge that life presents.

Nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:15-16


Lyrics
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.

Kids hold up their index finger throughout verse

Won't let Satan blow it out,
I'm gonna let it shine.
Won't let Satan blow it out,
I'm gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Kids blow on their finger when they sing "Won't let Satan blow it out..."

Let it shine til Jesus comes,
I'm gonna let it shine.
Let it shine til Jesus comes.
I'm gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Kids hold up their index finger throughout verse

Hide it under a bushel - NO!
I'm gonna let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel - NO!
I'm gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Kids cover left index finger pointing up with palm of right hand. When they shout "NO!" they uncover their finger.

Let it shine over the whole wide world,
I'm gonna let it shine.
Let it shine over the whole wide world,
I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Kids hold up their index finger throughout verse
