106. Brighten the Way With a Smile

1 There are hearts that are drooping in sorrow today;
There are souls under shadow, the while.
O the comfort from God you can gently convey,
And brighten the way with a smile.

Chorus:
O brighten the way with a smile,
Yes, brighten the way with a smile;
Some one's drearest days you can gently beguile,
And brighten the way with a smile.

2 There are burdens most grievous and heavy to bear;
There are souls whom the sinful revile,
You can lovingly whisper God's promises rare,
And brighten the way with a smile. [Chorus]

3 When the soul is in darkness and weary with care
Comes the tempter alluring with guile.
You should shine in that life like the sunbeam so fair,
And brighten the way with a smile. [Chorus]

4 O the beautiful dawning of day is not far,
And the gloaming will linger a while.
Let us glow like the glittering, bright morning star,
And brighten the way with a smile. [Chorus]
