6585. Thank Him for the Sunshine

1. There are moments in each life that bring their sadness;
There are other precious moments that bring joy;
But we’ll thank our loving Master for the sunshine
Of the moments that His service doth employ.

Refrain
Yes, we’ll thank our loving Master for the sunshine
That is shining in our soul-life, come to stay;
We will love Him and we’ll praise Him for the blessing
Of His joyous presence in our hearts today.

2. There are blessings when the clouds hang down in darkness,
For the raindrops then will soon begin to fall,
And the place that long has been so dry and thirsting
Gains a blessing from the Father over all. [Refrain]

3. All about us God, in nature, seems but smiling,
From the rivulets and daisies in the field;
And through every life He seeks to send a message,
If to Him our highest talents we will yield. [Refrain]
