Donna Fargo - You Can't Be A Beacon (If Your Light Don't Shine) Lyrics




You can't be a beacon
If your light don't shine
You can't be a beacon
If your light don't shine
There's a little light
In all of us by God's design
But you can't be a beacon
If your light don't shine

How can you ask for truth
When you do not truthful live
How can you ask forgiveness
When you don't forgive
I don't mean to bring you down
Or speak to you unkind
But you can't be a beacon
If your light don't shine

You can't be a beacon
If your light don't shine
You can't be a beacon
If your light don't shine
There's a little light
In all of us by God's design
But you can't be a beacon
If your light don't shine

How can you ask a child
To be honest and true
When he can only judge what's right
By what he sees in you
How can you offer vision
Yet walk around blind
No, you can't see a beacon
If it's light don't shine

You can't be a beacon
If your light don't shine
You can't be a beacon
If your light don't shine
There's a little light
In all of us by God's design
But you can't be a beacon
If your light don't shine

May God's love surround you
May you find a brighter day
May He grant you the peace
You seek in every way
God's light burns
In each life, yours and mine
And you can be a beacon
If you just let it shine

You can be a beacon
If you let it shine
You can be a beacon
If you let it shine
There's a little light in
All of us by God's design
You can be a beacon
If you let it shine

You can be a beacon
If you let it shine
You can be a beacon
If you let it shine
There's a little light in
All of us by God's design
You can be a beacon
If you let it shine

You can be a beacon
If you let it shine
You can be a beacon
If you let it shine
There's a little light in
All of us by God's design
You can be a beacon
If you let it shine

  5. Nicholas West

    Do any one of you recall when Donna Fargo sang ( live ) , One Day At A Time , and on what show that was ? ..As usual , google can't grasp it .

  6. Art Calvin

    I just heard this on a Country Classics radio station from Galax, VA , I live in Greensboro, NC, the DJ after this song played mentioned Donna is from Mount Airy, NC 50 miles from me, essentially Mayberry the hometown of Andy Griffith. I hadn't heard this since the 70's what a treat, also love Donna's rendition of Paul Anka Song "Do I love you".

  7. MaElign Daryl A

  8. FradyKvt420

  9. Ray Freeman

    Donna Fargo is wearing beauitful biboveralls and pink shirt

  10. baf236

    Donna Fargo is so talented most of her songs cannot be sung by anybody but her.

  11. Larry Harkleroad

    This song is so truthful and is where the world misses it so much.

  12. Randal mc'murphy

    truer words never spoken

  13. Donald Moore

    who would thumbs down this? Muslims? Liberals? Who???

  14. Josey Shannon

    Heard this the other day,so true back then and even more so today. I love her music!!!!!

  15. R. Blakehole

    When I was growing up in the 1970s I loved the following female singers: Olivia Newton John, Karen Carpenter, Emmy Lou Harris, Dolly Parton, and, Donna Fargo. Those are the ranks in which I put Donna Fargo. I know she had serious medical problems by the late Seventies which prevented her continuing performing and song writing, but, she still had an impact on me. I love this song!!!!

  16. Not my real Name

    She sounds like Loretta Lynn!

  17. Kenny Huskisson

    Seen this beautiful lady back in 1976 with The Statler Brothers in Jackson, Mississippi, awesome show!!, true country singers, when country music was still country music.

  18. Kelli R

    In the late 70s and early 80s, my family was close with this wonderful woman. When my sister passed away, Donna Fargo wrote my mom a letter. We used to go see her at Knott's Berry Farm all of the time. I have a ton of pictures (somewhere) of me being held up by someone to give her presents while she was on stage or hugging her back stage. She is an amazing woman and talent that MS has tried to keep from us.

  19. moorek1967

    You can tell that she has MS in this video. I have MS so I recognize the way she stands and holds her arm.

  20. William Poff

    AaaaaaaaMen!!

  21. carmen stephens

    Loved her then, love her now!

  22. Tim Martin

    We love you Donna! One of the very biggest hits in all of Country Music History! She was the No. 1 Female Vocalist of the 1970's! It's hard t o believe how big she was.....No. 1 by far in Country Music in 1970's!

  23. Walter Little

    I have always tried to do what the song says and be a shining beacon.

  24. Fara Marsh

    This is so true, and so many are not letting their light shine to help the hungry, homeless, pollution, hate, and treating others like they don't count.

  25. Deborah Murray

    teddy bear Donna fango

  26. Francis Ellis

    she balm good

  27. Roman DiValenti

    She is simply wonderful - original, and honest in her ways, prayers and music!

    Joseph Fagundes

    Roman DiValenti
    Too bad country is not like this today. All the new stuff is crap

  28. Kawolski

    "You can't be a beacon if your light don't shine", Farrah Fawcett-Majors line from I Will Be Remembered, Episode 20, Charlie's Angels 1977 😊
