The Spirit that is in me
Is the lamp of the Lord
I am not to hide my light
But let it shine abroad.
For, if my eye be clear
Then my body is full of light
But if my eye be evil
It's much darker than the night.

Now, my eyes are clear
With Jesus' light they gleam
For by the Holy Spirit of God
I did remove my beam.
I am but an earthen vessel yet,
Like the one of Gideon
But God shattered me in pieces
To show His light within.

Proverbs 20:27
