deixar brilhar a luz





"This Little Light Of Mine"


This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
Every day, every day, every day, every way,
Gonna let my little light shine.
Light that shines is the light of love,
Hides the darkness from above,
Shines on me and it shines on you,
Shows you what the power of love can do.
Shine my light both bright and clear,
Shine my light both far and near,
In every dark corner that I find,
Let my little light shine.

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.

.Monday gave me the gift of love,
Tuesday peace came from above,
Wednesday told me to have more faith,
Thursday gave me a little more grace,
Friday told me to watch and pray,
Saturday told me just what to say,
Sunday gave me the power divine
To let my little light shine.

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.

Shine, shine, shine, shine, shine.


Christina Ricci, contracenando com Samuel L. Jackson, canta "This Little Light of Mine" em "Black Snake Moan" (Entre o Céu e o Inferno, 2007)


"Quanto àqueles que, advertidos a se relembrarem de si, convertem-se ao Senhor, de disformes que eram pelas paixões mundanas, são eles reformados pelo Senhor tendo atendido ao Apóstolo que diz: Não vos conformeis com este mundo, mas transformai-vos, renovando a vossa mente (Rm 12, 2), a fim de que aquela imagem [a imago Dei na alma humana] comece a ser restaurada por quem a formou. Com efeito, ela não pode restaurar-se a si mesma, como pôde deformar-se a si mesma".
SANTO AGOSTINHO,
A TRINDADE
