Representative Text

1. In spite of gloom and darkness,
Keep facing t’ward the light,
Keep looking for the sunshine,
Tho’ hidden from your sight;
For at the dawn of morning,
So beautiful and bright,
The blessèd sunshine coming
Will drive away the night.

Sunshine, sunshine,
Soft and gentle from above,
Sunshine, sunshine,
Token of a Father’s love;
Sunshine, sunshine,
Lighting all the dreary way,
Sunshine, sunshine,
Turning darkness into day.

2. In spite of all your sorrow,
O let your spirit fly,
To where the sun is shining
Above the clouded sky;
A better day is coming,
A dawn of glory bright,
The sunshine of God’s presence
Will drive away the night. [Refrain]

3. We’ll gather with our loved ones
Upon the silv’ry strand,
Our doubts and fears will vanish,
And we will understand,
The beauty and the brightness
Of Heaven’s sun-kissed shore,
The sunshine of God’s presence
Is there forevermore. [Refrain]
