Song Message

Jesus is my light and my Salvation and I want to shine for Him and let everyone know who He is and what He has done in my life. There have been times where I have been happy to hide, happy to fly under the radar or concerned about what people may think of me if they truly knew what the love of Jesus meant to me. I am not gonna hide anymore! Jesus has turned my sorrow, my darkness into light and given me hope and a future. He has filled my heart with His love and I want to let the whole world know about it because He is there waiting to do this for everyone when they receive Him into their life.

Matthew 5 vs 14-16 (NIV) “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Mark 4 vs 21 – 22 (NIV) “He said to them, “Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand? For whatever is hidden is meant to be brought out into the open.”

Luke 8 vs 16 (NIV) “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.”


Not gonna hide it away
Gonna shine my light night and day
Gonna show the world who you are
And let your love flow right out of my heart

Not gonna hide it under a bushel
No No not gonna
Tuck it under my bed
Not gonna
Keep it under a bowl
No No
I’m gonna put it on top of a lamp-stand

I’m gonna shine for you Jesus
I’m gonna shine the light
I’m gonna live for you Jesus
You turned my darkness into light

You turned my darkness into light
You turned my darkness into light
