6395. Sunshine on the Hill

1. There are shadows in the valley,
Where our tired feet must go;
But we hear the peaceful waters,
As they murmur soft and low;
And our Shepherd whispers gently
As He leads us onward still;
There are shadows in the valley,
But ’tis sunshine on the hill.

Refrain
Sunshine on the hill,
There is sunshine on the hill
There are shadows in the valley,
But ’tis sunshine on the hill.

2. There are shadows in the valley,
But we breathe the sweet perfume
Of the roses on the mountain,
In their lovely vernal bloom;
And again our Shepherd whispers,
As He leads us onward still:
There are shadows in the valley,
But ’tis sunshine on the hill. [Refrain]

3. Oh, the shadows in the valley
Like a dream will pass away;
They will vanish at the dawning
Of the bright and glorious day;
Even now there comes an echo,
And we feel its magic thrill:
There are shadows in the valley,
But ’tis sunshine on the hill. [Refrain]

Notes: Fanny Crosby, 1899: We were out riding one day, and Mr. Sankey said, There's sunshine on the hill, even though there are shadows in the valley, and his remark led me to write the hymn in which those words are used (Crosby, p. 188).
