50. I'll Be a Sunbeam

1 Jesus wants me for a sunbeam,
To shine for Him each day;
In every way try to please Him,
At home, at school, at play.

Refrain:
A sunbeam, a sunbeam,
Jesus wants me for a sunbeam;
A sunbeam, a sunbeam,
I’ll be a sunbeam for Him.

2 Jesus wants me to be loving,
And kind to all I see;
Showing how pleasant and happy,
His little one can be. [Refrain]

3 I will ask Jesus to help me
To keep my heart from sin;
Ever reflecting His goodness,
And always shine for Him. [Refrain]

4 I’ll be a sunbeam for Jesus,
I can if I but try;
Serving Him moment by moment,
Then live for Him on high. [Refrain]
