This song is credited to Blind Willie Johnson. Here's information about Blind Willie Johnson:
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blind_Willie_Johnson
“Blind" Willie Johnson (January 22, 1897 – September 18, 1945) was a gospel blues singer and guitarist. While the lyrics of his songs were usually religious, his music drew from both sacred and blues traditions and is distinguished by his slide guitar accompaniment and gravelly false-bass voice, with occasional use of a tenor voice."

LYRICS TO "SHINE ON ME"
(as sung by Blind Willie Johnson)

Let it shine on me, let it shine on me
Oh, let Your light from the lighthouse shine on
Let it shine on me, let it shine on me
Oh, let Your light from the lighthouse shine on

My Lord, he's done just what he said
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me
Heal the sick and rise the dead
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me

Oh, let it shine on well, let it shine on
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me
Shine on oh, let it shine on
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me

I know I've got religion and I ain't ashamed
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me
Angels in Heaven, done wrote my name
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me

Oh, let it shine on well, let it shine on
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me
Shine on well, let it shine on
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me

Oh, let it shine on oh, let it shine on
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me
Shine on well, let shine on
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me

Shine on oh, let it shine on
Let Your light from the lighthouse shine on me
Shine on oh, let it shine on
Let Your light shine on me

Reminding The Saints Of The Hope:

As this century closes, Bishop Carlton Pearson's new album Live At Azusa 3: Reminding the Saints of the Hope, re-introduces us to the music that has carried African-American from the century's opening. What he has crafted is a joyous slice of Americana. These dozen songs echo the golden age of gospel when the Soul Stirrers and Mahalia Jackson were cutting edge and in their prime. These songs also remind us of the triumphs, tragedies and tenacious faith that have followed many of us on our journey through America...

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azusa_Street_Revival
"The Azusa Street Revival was a historic Pentecostal revival meeting that took place in Los Angeles, California and is the origin of the Pentecostal movement.[1] It was led by William J. Seymour, an African American preacher. It began with a meeting on April 9, 1906, and continued until roughly 1915. The revival was characterized by ecstatic spiritual experiences accompanied by miracles, dramatic worship services, speaking in tongues, and inter-racial mingling. The participants were criticized by the secular media and Christian theologians for behaviors considered to be outrageous and unorthodox, especially at the time. Today, the revival is considered by historians to be the primary catalyst for the spread of Pentecostalism in the 20th century."...
