Representative Text

1 Just a little smile from Jesus in the morning,
All your bitter disappointments will repay;
Tho’ the world may frown, while Jesus smiles upon you,
You’ll have sunshine in your heart throughout the day.

Refrain:
If you get a smile from Jesus in the morning
You’ll have smiles to scatter all along the way;
If you get a smile from Jesus in the morning,
You’ll have sunshine in your heart throughout the day.

2 If the crepe is on the door and loved ones leave you,
In your sorrow there is hope for you alway;
In the secret place of pray’r find consolation,
Then your heart will find new sunshine ev’ry day. [Refrain]

3 And when dark the evening shadows gather ‘round you
And when earthly things begin to fade away;
If you have the smile of Jesus thro’ life’s journey,
You’ll have sunshine at the ending of the day. [Refrain]
