Sunshine Bearer

Full Text

1 Dark the way and dreary,
Sad the heart and weary,
Toiling all along life's busy, rugged way;
But kind words and faces
Brighten gloomy places.
And the heart is gladdened by a cheerful ray.

Chorus:
Speaking loving words, cheerful as the birds,
Lifting heavy burdens from a weary heart;
Giving sunny smiles short'ning lengthy miles,
Making others happy, 'Tis a Christian's part.

2 Earth is filled with sadness,
We should make it gladness,
And our lives like rays of sunshine ever be;
On the road we're journ'ying,
There is no returning,
Let us not neglect an opportunity. [Chorus]

3 Speaking words for Jesus,
Foll'wing paths that lead us
Into places where His name is never heard;
Guiding those who wander,
To the home up yonder,
Teaching them the blessed sunshine of His love. [Chorus]
