Full Text

1 More of thy sunshine in my heart,
More of thy love to me impart;
Help me to bear the cheering light
Unto the souls that sit in night.

Chorus:
More of thy sunshine in my heart,
Life has its shadows, grief its smart;
Sun of my soul, with rays benign,
Enter this darkened heart of mine.

2 More of thy sunshine in my heart,
Then I may smile tho' joys depart;
Hope will abide within my breast,
Teaching the lesson, "God knows best!" [Chorus]

3 More of thy sunshine in my heart,
Life may be sweet, tho' friends must part;
Teach me to look to thee for aid,
Be thou my strength when sore dismayed. [Chorus]
