Let Me Be a Witness
Intro: G D G D

G                                       
Some people preach the Gospel in mighty way,

Some people serve the Lord 
                    C
without one word to say.
      G
But I believe you have to live it 

before you ever give,

A friend in need the Bread of Life
          D               G
that will surely save his soul.


Chorus:
G
Lord let me be a witness in this world of darkness,
       C             D             G
Let me shine, let me shine, let me shine.

Pour heaven's light down through me,

I pray that You can use me,
       C             D             G
Let me shine, let me shine, let me shine.
C    D         G
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. (Amen)
C    D         G
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. (Amen)
C    D         G
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. 


C
Oh Lord I am Your servant and I do believe;

I don't need to wear a sign 
                  F
or a button on my sleeve.
C
I'll reach out to my brother, 

I want to be a friend

And help him cross the troubled water 
     G                C
over to that Promised Land.


Chorus:
C
Lord let me be a witness in this world of darkness,
       F             G             C
Let me shine, let me shine, let me shine.

Pour heaven's light down through me,

I pray that You can use me,
       F             G             C
Let me shine, let me shine, let me shine.
F    G         C
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. (Amen)
F    G         C
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. (Amen)
F    G         C
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. 


F
Oh I proclaim the Gospel every night and day,

I shout it from the mountaintops 
                          B
and the world can hear me say
F
Holy is my saviour, 

He is the one,

That gives me the power 
        C            F
and the grace to overcome.

Chorus:
F
Lord let me be a witness in this world of darkness,
       B             C             F
Let me shine, let me shine, let me shine.

Pour heaven's light down through me,

I pray that You can use me,
       B             C             F
Let me shine, let me shine, let me shine.
B    C         F
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. 
B    C         F
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. (Amen)
B    C         F
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.


       B             C             F
Let me shine, let me shine, let me shine
       B             C             F
Let me shine, let me shine, let me shine (Amen)
       B             C             F
Let me shine, let me shine, let me shine (Oh yes)
B      C             F
Shine, shine, shine, shine (Let me hear you)
B      C             F
Shine, shine, shine, shine
B      C             F
Shine, shine, shine, shine
