Lyrics of May He shine His Light on you

May He shine His light on you
May He shine His light on you
When you need someone to turn to
May He shine His light on you

I saw a man on the street the other day
He had a tear in his eye
So I walked on over to see what I could do
And to ask him why

He said "go away
I'm so blue I just want to die"
I got no friends he said
Yeah...they're all gone
I just want to stay drunk
until the cold gray dawn

I don't have any money. My clothes are all torn
And I never knew my parents since the day I was born
But I got to admit. This may sound a little bit out of place
I thought I saw Jesus just now when I looked into your face

May He shine His light on you
May He shine His light
When you need someone to turn to
May He shine His light on you

Then in a flash his personality
It went from sour to sweet
He said, "I knew you were a blues man
before I ever heard you speak".

And I'm so glad that's a guitar you're holding
And not a loaded gun. Can you play it?
Can you really play it?
Or is it just for fun?

I said, " I know how to sing and I certainly know how to play".
Even though long ago it's seen its day
It still has the magic to steal your heart away

It will fill your life with sweet summer sun
And bring you flowers when you have none
While strumming the blues away
Until the morning has come

Then together we both began to croon
Like two dogs howling at the moon
When you're feeling lost and blue and you have no one to turn to
May He shine His light on you

May He shine His light
May He shine His light on you
When you need someone to turn to
May He shine His light on you

May He Shine
Shine His Light
When you need someone
