524. This Little Light/This Joy I Have

1 This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine;
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.

2 Everywhere I go,
I'm gonna let it shine;
everywhere I go,
I'm gonna let it shine.
Everywhere I go,
I'm gonna let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

3 All through the night,
I'm gonna let it shine;
all through the night,
I'm gonna let it shine.
All through the night,
I'm gonna let it shine;
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
