'Shine A Light'
                                                                                                                                                                                 
 
 

I had a candle but I could not see

I couldn't see the way ahead.

I had a candle but I could not see.

I couldn't see the way ahead
 
I had a lantern but I could not see
I couldn't see the road ahead.
The light was bright but still I could not see
I couldn't see the road ahead.

 

I had a searchlight but I could not see

I couldn't see the way ahead.

I had a searchlight shining over me

But couldn't see the road ahead.

 

And all the time I knew,

Oh yes I always knew,

The way to light so I could see.

And all the time I knew,

Oh yes I always knew,

The light should shine from out of me.
