1 Jesus is sunshine all the day long,
Keeping our hearts o’erflowing with song,
Making our burdens easy to bear,
Chasing the shadows, lightening care.

Refrain:
Jesus is sunshine, beautiful sunshine,
Keeping His dear ones bright and whole;
Cheering us homeward, keeping us happy,
Jesus is sunshine for the soul.

2 Jesus is sunshine, praise His dear name,
Year after year His love is the same;
Skies may be clouded, ways may be dim,
Sunshine is always coming from Him. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is sunshine all the way home,
Hence have our souls no reason to roam;
Brightly His love will shine on our way
Till we have reached the kingdom of day. [Refrain]
