Cloud or Sunshine

Full Text

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.

Chorus:
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]
