Representative Text

1 O give of your sunshine to others!
The world’s full of sorrow and care,
And many a heart will be lightened,
If you will your sunshine but share.
You know not what heart may be fainting
’Neath grief you may help to allay;
O bind up the poor brokenhearted,
And give them your sunshine today.

O give of your sunshine to others
And brighten the world while you may;
There’s life-giving power in sunshine,
O scatter it freely today.

2 O give of your sunshine to others,
’Tis better than silver or gold;
For many of life’s richest treasures
Can be neither purchased or sold.
When Jesus blest earth with His presence,
It was not of wealth that He gave,
But sympathy, tenderness, mercy,
And love that has power to save. [Refrain]

3 O give of your sunshine to others,
Some soul to right paths it may win;
May strengthen a weak one that’s tempted,
And keep him from yielding to sin.
A word, fitly spoken, has power
To uplift and strengthen the heart;
To weary and heavily laden,
’Twill courage and comfort impart. [Refrain]
