6394. Sunshine in My Soul

1. There is sunshine in my soul today,
More glorious and bright
Than glows in any earthly sky,
For Jesus is my light.

O there’s sunshine, blessèd sunshine,
When the peaceful, happy moments roll;
When Jesus shows His smiling face,
There is sunshine in the soul.

2. There is music in my soul today,
A carol to my king,
And Jesus, listening, can hear
The songs I cannot sing. [Refrain]

3. There is springtime in my soul today,
For, when the Lord is near,
The dove of peace sings in my heart,
The flowers of grace appear. [Refrain]

4. There is gladness in my soul today,
And hope and praise and love,
For blessings which He gives me now,
For joys laid up above. [Refrain]
