181. Sunlight

1 I wandered in the shades of night,
Till Jesus came to me,
And with the sunlight of His love
Bid all my darkness flee.

Refrain:
Sunlight, sunlight in my soul today,
Sunlight, sunlight all along the way;
Since the Savior found me, took away my sin,
I have had the sunlight of His love within.

2 Though clouds may gather in the sky,
And billows ’round me roll,
However dark the world may be
I’ve sunlight in my soul. [Refrain]

3 While walking in the light of God,
I sweet communion find;
I press with holy vigor on
And leave the world behind. [Refrain]

4 I cross the wide, extended fields,
I journey o’er the plain,
And in the sunlight of His love
I reap the golden grain. [Refrain]

5 Soon I shall see Him as He is,
The Light that came to me;
Behold the brightness of His face,
Throughout eternity. [Refrain]
