Sunshine As You Go

O the world has need of sunshine as you go

Representative Text

1 Oh, the world has need of sunshine as you go,
For we often see the tears of sorrow flow;
You can haste that coming day,
When they’ll all be wiped away,
If you scatter blessed sunshine as you go.

Refrain:
You can scatter blessed sunshine as you go,
You can scatter blessed sunshine as you go;
Oh, so many hearts are sad,
You can help to make them glad,
If you scatter blessed sunshine as you go.

2 You can labor for the Master as you go,
Plant the precious seed and he will bid it grow;
Toiling on, whate’er betide,
With the Saviour by your side,
You can scatter blessed sunshine as you go. [Refrain]

3 You will meet with many trials as you go,
There will be some self-denials here below;
But keep looking still above,
And remember God is love,
While you scatter blessed sunshine as you go. [Refrain]
