Lamplighter – lyrics

We are a city on a hill
A city for the world to see
We are a light in the darkness
A light to help the blind heart see

Lamplighter, Lamplighter
The bushel I will not hide my lamp below

Let your light shine before men
That they may see good works
Glorify your Father in heaven
For evil in the darkness lurks

Lamplighter, Lamplighter
The bushel I will not hide my lamp below

We are the light of the world
A light that cannot be hid
We are the candle on the candlestick
To hide the light we must forbid

Lamplighter, Lamplighter
The bushel I will not hide my lamp below

Let your little light shine
I’m going to let my light shine
