150. Shining for Jesus

1 Are you shining for Jesus, my brother,
Shining so clear and so bright,
That the souls that are perishing around you
May be guided to Him by your light?

Shining for Jesus,
Are you shining today?
Shining for Jesus,
Shining all the way.
Shining for Jesus,
In this world of care;
Shining for Jesus,
Shining everywhere.

2 Are you shining for Jesus, my brother,
Shining in deed and in word?
Is your life by its purity showing
The likeness of Jesus your Lord? [Refrain]

3 Are you shining for Jesus, my brother,
Shining for truth and for right,
Where bold unbelief and its minions
Are posing as angels of light? [Refrain]

4 Oh! shine out for Jesus, my brother,
Shine where He needs you the most;
And shine where the darkness hangs deepest
O’er the path of the straying and lost. [Refrain]

5 Shine only and always for Jesus,
Then, when your toiling is o’er,
In mansions of glory eternal
You shall shine as the stars evermore. [Refrain]
