Representative Text

1 If you would sing along life’s way,
And fearlessly your faith display;—
If you would help the Lord each day,
Always live in the sunshine.

Always live in the sunshine,
Gleaming from heav’n above;
The blessed glorious sunshine,
Of your Redeemer’s love.

2 If you would comfort those who grieve,
And weary, burdened souls relieve;
If blessings rich you would receive,
Always live in the sunshine. [Refrain]

3 If you would make the world more bright
By sending out the gospel light,
And helping men to live aright,
Always live in the sunshine. [Refrain]

4 If daily you would grow in grace,
And ev’ry doubt by faith replace,
If you would see your Savior’s face,
Always live in the sunshine. [Refrain]
