Brighten the Corner Where You Are

Do not (C) wait until some deed of greatness (C/E) 
You (Ebdim7) may (G7) do,
Do not wait to shed your light (C) afar,
To the many duties ever near you (F) now be (F#dim7) true,
(C/G) Brighten the corner (D9) where (G7) you (C) are.

Chorus

(C) Brighten the corner (G7) where you are!
Brighten the corner (C) where you are!
Someone far from harbour you may (F) guide 
across the (F#dim7) bar;
(C/G) Brighten the corner (D9) where (G7) you (C) are!

Just above are clouded skies that you may help to clear,
Let not narrow self your way debar;
Though into one heart alone may fall your song of cheer,
Brighten the corner where you are.

Chorus

Here for all your talent you may surely find a need,
Here reflect the bright and Morning Star;
Even from your humble hand the Bread of Life may feed,
Brighten the corner where you are.

Chorus
