Representative Text

1 Let our hearts be always cheerful;
Why should murm'ring enter there,
When our kind and loving Father
Makes us children of His care?

Refrain:
Always cheerful always cheerful,
Sunshine all around we see;
Full of beauty is the path of duty,
Cheerful we may always be.

2 With His gentle hand to lead us,
Should the pow'rs of sin assail,
He has promised grace to help us;
Never can His promise fail. [Refrain]

3 When we turn aside from duty,
Comes the pain of doing wrong;
And a shadow, creeping o'er us,
Checks the rapture of our song. [Refrain]

4 Oh! the good are always happy,
And their path is ever bright;
Let us heed the blessed counsel,
Shun the wrong and love the right. [Refrain]
