Wait For The Light To Shine    (1944)

When the road is rocky and you're carrying the load
Wait for the light to shine
If you find your friendless on that weary lonesome road
Wait for the light to shine

Wait for the light to shine
Wait for the light to shine
Pull yourself together and keep looking for the sign
Wait for the light to shine

Don't forget your brother as you travel through the land
Wait for the light to shine
He may be in trouble and may need a helping hand
Wait for the light to shine

Wait for the light to shine
Wait for the light to shine
Never give up hope or cast your pearls before the swine
Wait for the light to shine

If your life is empty and you're on your last go round
Wait for the light to shine
If you hear the chime bells on the highway you have found
Wait for the light to shine

Wait for the light to shine
Wait for the light to shine
When your friends forsake you and you haven't got a dime
Wait for the light to shine

Don't let trouble fool you and your sins will all be gone
Wait for the light to shine
Don't forget it's darkest just before the break of dawn
Wait for the light to shine

Wait for the light to shine
Wait for the light to shine
Keep these words before you as you walk that narrow line
Wait for the light to shine
