1 Ev'ry sky that glistens with the golden day,
Has its cloud of sorrow drifting o'er the way;
If we are the sunshine, clouds will quickly flee,
And the souls that meet us will be light and free.
Are you cloud or sunshine in the world today?
Are you spreading darkness, or a golden ray?
Has some heart been darkened by hour cloud of sin?
Have you been the sunshine, helping others win?
2 Sunshine would be brighter for us day by day,
If the clouds of darkness all were swept away;
Why not be the sunlight, filling hearts with cheer,
Driving far away the sorrow met with here. [Chorus]
3 There are souls in darkness, longing for the light;
We who are God's children should be shining bright;
There are hearts all shadowed o'er by sin and shame,
Waiting for a sunbeam given in His name. [Chorus]
4 Let us then look upward for a golden gleam
Out of Heaven's sunlight till our faces beam;
Then with hearts of kindness let us make, while here,
Lives of others brighter with our sunshine cheer. [Chorus]
