Representative Text

1. In the light that Jesus sheds on you,
Thro’ many blessings day by day,
You can be His servant kind and true,
By leaving smiles along your way.

Refrain
You can lighten someone’s burden,
You can brighten someone’s day;
You can drive the loneliness from someone’s heart,
Leaving smiles along the way.

2. Sorrows all about you, grief and pain,
And burdens that are hard to bear;
You can mix the sunshine with the rain,
By making lighter someone’s care. [Refrain]

3. Then in joy and gladness daily be
The Savior’s witness staunch and true;
Showing unto others how ’twas He
Who shed His smiling love on you.[Refrain]
