1 A little bit of sunshine,
A little word or two,
Just falling as the moments
Suggest the way to you;
Ah! these will change the features
Of all the world’s sad face,
And give some soul the courage
To stand within its place.

Sunshine; sunshine;
A little bit of sunshine,
Sunshine; sunshine,
From out a heart of love.

2 A little bit of sunshine,
Enough to throw a smile,
Upon some down-cast spirit,
His sorrows to beguile;
Ah! this is what is needed
More often than we know,
By those whose hearts are aching
Along their paths below. [Refrain]

3 These little bits of sunshine
Caught from the skies above,
Just falling with the moments,
From out a heart of love;
Such service truly given
To each will surely bring,
Its blessing here, and yonder,
From Christ, our Lord and King. [Refrain]
