1 In a world where sorrow
Ever will be known,
Where are found the needy,
And the sad and lone;
How much joy and comfort
You can all bestow,
If you scatter sunshine
Ev'rywhere you go.

Refrain:
Scatter sunshine all along the way,
Cheer and bless and brighten
Ev'ry paasing day;
Scatter sunshine all along the way,
Cheer and bless and brighten
Ev'ry passing day.

2 Slightest actions often
Meet the sorest needs,
For the world wants daily
Little kindly deeds;
Oh, what care and sorrow
You may help remove,
With your songs and courage,
Sympathy and love. [Refrain]

3 When the days are gloomy
Sing some happy song,
Meet the world's repining
With a courage strong;
Go with faith undaunted,
Thro' the ills of life;
Scatter smiles and sunshine
O'er its toil and strife. [Refrain]
