Lift Your Light A Little Higher

by Civilla D. Martin


Lift your light a little higher, there's a life to save,
Let it shine a little brighter, o'er the stormy wave;
Some poor soul for help is crying,
In the sea of sin is dying,
Lift your light a little higher o'er the wave.

Lift your light a little higher, do not hide its ray,
You may be a beacon light a long the rocky way;
By a little care and labor,
You may save a friend or neighbor,
Lift your light a little higher o'er the wave.

Let the light from God's own presence shine into your heart,
Then to those who live in darkness light you may impart;
Burning "oil of joy and gladness,"
You may help dispel life's sadness,
Lift your light a little higher o'er the wave.

Chorus

Lift your light a little higher
Keep it bright;
Someone lost and sinking,
Looks to you for light;
You a life may save, from a hopeless grave,
Just lift your light up higher, o'er the wave.
