This Little Light of Mine
“This Little Light of Mine” is a gospel song that is actually written for children. This song was used to encourage children that they are not alone and they have people around them to support and love them. And, no other cover exists out there that would compare to that of Brenda Lee’s.
Don’t take my word for it. Listen to it for yourself!
It should be noted that the words of the song have substantial influences on the Bible. However, it is unclear to which specific Bible verse it is from. But, there are sources that say that it is taken from Matthew 5_13-16 which reads:
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be [hidden]. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house. Let your light shine before men, that they may see your fine works and give glory to your Father who is in Heaven.”
There are other Biblical interpretations about the song out there, but it all boils down to one message. We should all remember that we are all creations of the Lord, and we are all created equal. Sometimes, we forget how much of a great creation we are. Yes, we may lose our way. We are no means perfect. But in that regard, we should always remember that the Lord our Savior is always there for us to herd us in the right direction and that we are all deserving of love.
Brenda Lee is known as “Little Miss Dynamite” to the country music industry. She is a living legend. Lee is ranked as the fourth most chart-topping artist in the 1960’s. She is perhaps best known with her hits “I’m Sorry” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.”
She is a very decorated artist. Brenda Lee is a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Lee is the only woman to be inducted into both the Rock and Roll and Country Music Halls of Fame. She is also inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. She is still very much active in the country music scene, albeit as a special guest, or an award presenter.
