394. Jesus Is My Sunlight

1 My path is bright, my burden light,
Since Jesus came to stay;
I have no fear while He’s so near
To guide me in the way;
He is my light by day and night,
Along life’s rugged road,
And of His love I’m singing all the day.

Refrain:
Sunlight, sunlight on my path doth shine,
Bringing gladness to this heart of mine;
Sunlight, sunlight shining every day,
Jesus is my sunlight all the way.

2 This light divine doth brightly shine,
Dispelling all the night;
’Twill guide the feet along the way,
Into the paths of right;
’Twill comfort give to all who live
Within its rays so bright,
Until they reach those mansions in the sky. [Refrain]

3 Come out from sin, let’s walk within
This glorious light divine,
And journey to that home above,
Where joy will be sublime;
So glad and free we all shall be
Within His courts to shine,
Among the saints and angels over there. [Refrain]
