1 Life is full of sunshine, when the sun is hid,
When its beams no longer round the flowers play,
Sorrows will not linger, grief will not remain,
Where life is full of sunshine ev’ry day.

Refrain:
Then children sing,
Let the chorus ring,
For life is full of sunshine tho’ the clouds appear,
Then children sing,
Let the chorus ring,
While Jesus waits our song to hear.

2 Set the echoes ringing in a glad refrain,
Tho’ the clouds may gather dark’ning all the way,
Children of the Saviour ever joyful be,
For life is full of sunshine ev’ry day. [Refrain]
