1 Living in sunlight, beautiful sunlight,
Shining from Heaven thro’ the dark vale;
I am rejoicing, shouting His praises,
On the old ship that soon will set sail.

Glory to God, I’m living in sunlight,
Beaming with love, O glory divine;
I am rejoicing all of my journey,
Living in sunlight, Jesus is mine.

2 Living in sunlight, watching and waiting,
Pressing my way to mansions above;
Jesus the light, in Him is no darkness,
Ever I’ll trust His wonderful love. [Refrain]

3 Living in sunlight, heavenly sunlight,
Shining from glory down in my soul;
Leading me up to beautiful mansions,
Where God’s children never grow old. [Refrain]

4 Living in sunlight, homeland is nearing,
All the dark shadows soon will be o’er;
Cheer up, O pilgrim, bells are now ringing,
See the bright angels thronging the shore. [Refrain]
