Let Your Light Shine On Me

One of the songs that was played and sung at The Urban Forum was the classic Blind Willie Johnson song - "Let Your Light From The Lighthouse Shine On Me." It has stuck with me... It's one of those songs I just can't shake, not that I want to. So here are multiple versions:

Here's the Blind Willie Johnson version from 1929

I was trying to figure out where I had heard the song before... one of those places was the movie: The Ladykillers (2004). Here are The Venice Four:

Another place was the movie: Prairie Home Companion (2006): Garrison Keillor, Robin & Linda Williams, Prudence Johnson

For a livelier version, here's Rich Hallett, Hank Roberts, Steve Selin, Bill King, & Ben Gould

Or the Travelers Three from Hootenanny 1963

How about a gospel choir version:
