Shadow on the Wall

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing along with Bob Nolan in his home.

 

I’d been walking through the darkness,

I’d been lost beyond recall

And I’d never seen my shadow on the wall

Till I saw the Great Light shining

On the glory road ahead.

Then I turned and saw my shadow on the wall.

 

Let me walk in the light of the Lord

And my shadow will walk with me.

Let me follow the light of the Lord.

There my shadow will surely be

And the closer that I come to Him

The larger be my shadow on the wall.

 

In the greatness of my shadow

Is the greatness of my Lord

For ‘tis He who makes my shadow grow so tall,

Makes my soul rejoice with gladness

And my heart to swell with pride

For His light has cast my shadow on the wall.

 

Let me walk in the light of the Lord

And my shadow will walk with me.

Let me follow the light of the Lord.

There my shadow will surely be

And the closer that I come to Him

The larger be my shadow on the wall.

 

In the sunburst of the dawning,

In the moonbeam’s silver glow,

In the sudden flash of lightning He may call.

Let me then be standing straighter

Than I’ve ever stood before

And He’ll know me by my shadow on the wall.

 

Let me walk in the light of the Lord

And my shadow will walk with me.

Let me follow the light of the Lord.

There my shadow will surely be

And the closer that I come to Him

The larger be my shadow on the wall.
