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.

Refrain
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]
