Representative Text

1 Be a little sunbeam ev’rywhere you go;
Help to drive the darkness from this world below;
You will see the shadows swiftly flee away,
If you’ll be a sunbeam ev’ry day.

Refrain:
Be a little sunbeam tho’ your light be small,
Let its gleam of beauty o’er the darkness fall;
You will see the shadows swiftly flee away,
If you’ll be a sunbeam ev’ry day.

2 Be a little sunbeam ev’rywhere you go;
Shine, O shine for Jesus with a radiant glow;
Little ones may help this dark world to illume,
Sending golden sunshine thro’ the gloom. [Refrain]

3 Be a little sunbeam, shining bright and clear;
Someone may be wand’ring in the darkness near;
You may help to scatter shadows of the night,
Leading unto Christ who is the Light. [Refrain]
