Representative Text

1 Jesus, the beautiful sunshine,
Changing the night into day,
Shed in our hearts Thy bright radiance,
Sweetly illumine our way.

Sunshine, sunshine,
Jesus, the beautiful sunshine;
Sunshine, sunshine,
Sweetly illumine our way.

2 Jesus, the beautiful sunshine,
Shining from portals above,
When all around us is darkness,
Send us a gleam of Thy love. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, the beautiful sunshine,
Shine in our lives evermore,
May we reflect Thy effulgeance,
As we have never before. [Refrain]
