1 Does your sunshine make a bow
On the clouds around you?
Do you brighten, where you go,
Pathways all around You?

You can make a rainbow
Full of glory bright;
Where the clouds are hanging low
You can send your light.
You may be a beacon,
Sending rays afar,
If your light is shining
Brightly where you are.

2 Do you scatter words of cheer
When sad hearts are aching;
And to others, far and near,
Hope and courage taking? [Refrain]

3 Do you leave upon your way
Gladness you are giving
Unto others day by day,
For the Master living? [Refrain]

4 Is your path to heav’n above
Filled with radiant glory?
Is your life a light of love
As you tell the story? [Refrain]

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
