Sunbeams bright

Full Text

1 Just a little sunbeam bright,
Swiftly earthward winging,
Waking up the sleeping flow'rs,
Joy and gladness bringin.

Shining brightly ev'ry day,
Driving gloomy clouds away,
Little sunbeams we would be,
Pointing ever, Lord, to Thee.

2 Just a little sunbeam bright,
Down from heaven shining,
Giving clouds that look so drear,
Each a silver lining. [Chorus]

3 Just a little sunbeam bright,
Doing well its duty,
Telling of the Father's love,
Filling earht with beauty. [Chorus]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
