Representative Text

1 Let the sunshine of joy get into your life—
There are shadows enough at best;
But the day is less long when ‘tis cheered with a song,
And the singer is always blest.

Ref:
Sunshine, sunshine,
Bringing blessings from above;
Blessings, blessings,
And the greatest of these is love.

2 Let the sunshine of love get into your heart,
And the bitter will be made sweet;
Lift some burden of care which another must bear,
Smooth some pathway for weary feet. [Refrain]

3 Let the sunshine of grace get into your speech,
Say some helpful and kindly word
As you pass on your way: ‘tis so easy to say,
Yet how precious to those who’ve heard! [Refrain]

4 Let the sunshine of peace abide in your soul,
Whatever the outward strife;
‘Twill illumine their way to the realm of the day,
Then shine on thro’ an endless life. [Refrain]
