       C                                                    F
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern, be the light
       G                                           C
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern tonight
       C                                                    F
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern, be the light
       G                                           C
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern tonight


Verse 1 chords:
       C
It's a hungry world out there, even the wind will take a bite 
          F         
And I can feel the world circling, sniffin' round me in the night 
        C                                                          C
And the lost sheep grow teeth, forsake the lambs and lie with the lions 
        C                         
And the livin' is desperate, vicarious and mean 
            F
And gettin' by is so hard that even the rocks are picked clean 
        G                                                     C
And the bones of small contention are the only food the hungry find  


Chorus chords:
So be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern, be the light 
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern tonight


Verse 2: [use verse 1 chords]
Where the roses eat the thorns, the thistles have no chance 
And ain't it no wonder that the babies come out crying in advance 
And the children long for shelter in the hollow of some lonesome cheek 

And the sky's so cold and clear the stars may stick you where you stand 
And you're glad it's dark 'cause you might see the Master's hand 
And you might cast around forever and never find the peace you seek 


Chorus chords:
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern, be the light; 
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern tonight. 


Verse 3: [use verse 1 chords]
For every cry in the night, somebody says "Have faith" 
Be content inside your questions, minutes, hours inside a maze 
Tell me what's the point of light that you have to strike a match to find 

So throw away those lamentations, we both know them all too well 
If there's a book of Jubilations well have to write it for ourselves
So come and lie next to me darling, let's write it while we still got time  


Interlude 1: [C - F - G - C]


Verse 4: [use verse 1 chords]
So if you've got a light, hold it high for me
I need it back tonight, hold it high for me
Cause I'm face to face, hold it high for me
In a lonesome place, hold it high for me

Well all the hurt that I've done, hold it high for me
That can't be undone, hold it high for me
Light had got me through, hold it high for me
I'd do the same for you, hold it high for me


Verse 5: [use verse 1 chords]
I'll hold it high for you, cause I know you got
I'll hold it high for you, your own valley to walk
I'll hold it high for you, though it's dark as death
I'll hold it high for you, and it gets darker yet

I'll hold it high for you, though you passing's lost
I'll hold it high for you, through the bees and rocks
I'll hold it high for you, I'll keep you safe from harm
I'll hold it high for you, 'till you're back in my arms


Chorus chords:
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern, be the light 
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern tonight
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern, be the light
Be the light of my lantern, the light of my lantern tonight


Outro: [repeat chorus chords]
