Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Fill your life with sunshine

Full Text

1 Fill your life with sunshine from those cloudless skies,
Where the never-fading lights in splendor rise;
Fill it with the rays that burn for faith’s clear eyes,
Fill your life with sunshine from above.

Fill your life with sunshine!
Blessed heav’nly sunshine!
Fill your life with sunshine from above!
Fill it with the glory of redeeming love,
Fill your life with sunshine from above.

2 Open wide your heart and let his light shine in,
Driving out all hidden wrong and secret sin;
Let the healing presence now its work begin,
Fill your life with sunshine from above. [Refrain]

3 Let His blessed sunshine on your pathway shine
Turn the eyes of others to the source divine;
Say to all, “that light will gladden thee and thine,
Fill your life with sunshine from above.” [Refrain]
