(track by the Jacksons, from album "Joyful Jukebox Music", released in 1976)

 

Mother Earth told the people
That the cold nights can be warm.
Just get along with your brother,
(It's the shelter from the storm).

If you're standing in the sunshine,
But still out in the rain,
Let your heart strike a match,
(Cause love lights the flame).

[Chorus]

Let it shine so bright -
The eternal light,
Let it burn forever and ever,
Let love bring us together.
Let it shine so bright -
The eternal light,
Let us join our hands together,
Make a chain that bonds forever.

Motionless people gather dust,
Stand in the rain and you'll rust.

Let's try to show compassion,
It's the time for us to learn
There will be a mellow tomorrow,
Our reward is love in return.

[Chorus]

Let it shine so bright -
The eternal light,
Let it burn forever and ever,
Let love bring us together!
(
Let it shine so bright)

Let it shine so bright!
The eternal light,
Let us join our hands together,
Make a chain that bonds forever and ever!

(Let it shine so bright)

Let it shine, yeah,

(The eternal light)

Yeah, yeah!

(Shine, shine so bright)

Shine, shine, shine so bright!

(The eternal light)

Yeah, yeah!

(Shine, shine so bright)

Shine, oh, shine so bright,

(The eternal light)

Shine, oh, shine!
