Glow Plug Light issue, 79 300TD

When I go to start her, the glow plug light on the dash recently stopped turning off to indicate the plugs were hot. In the meantime the plugs seem to still be working fine: I just wait 30-40 seconds with the key half cocked as always, and the car fires up normally,( and then the light turns off,) but I'd like to fix the problem, any suggstions?
