Representative Text

1 Happy are the people whose trust is in the Lord,
Walking with the Saviour, resting on his word;
Trusting in his promise tho’ dark may be the way,
Jesus dwelling in the heart
Makes sunshine every day.

Refrain:
Sunshine every day,
Sunshine all the way,
Jesus dwelling in the heart
Makes sunshine every day.

2 Walking with the Master we find our sweetest joy,
Working for his kingdom, O what blest employ!
Follow in his footsteps along the narrow ay,—
Jesus dwelling in the heart
Makes sunshine every day. [Refrain]

3 All his ransomed children a victor’s crown shall wear,
He will guide us onward to the mansions fair;
Never will he leave us, his love shall light the way,
Jesus dwelling in the heart
Makes sunshine every day. [Refrain]
