1 Oh, the blessèd sunshine which the Lord hath giv’n;
’Tis the Father’s blessing coming down from Heav’n.
He who in His goodness, sunshine doth bestow,
Gives a glimpse of glory to the world below.

Blessèd, blessèd sunshine from the realms of light;
Scattering gloom and shadow of the darkest night.
He who in His goodness sunshine doth bestow,
Gives a glimpse of glory to the world below.

2 Oh, the blessèd sunshine drives the clouds away;
Changes gloom and sadness to a brighter day;
And His radiant splendor passes no one by;
Sheds on all a blessing from the throne on high. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the blessèd sunshine of the Savior’s love;
’Tis the glorious sunshine from the home above;
Cheering us and guiding in the righteous way;
Leading up to Heaven, to the perfect day. [Refrain]
