Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord, there’s sunlight in my happy soul today,
Brighter than the glorious noon;
Christ, the Light, is shining in my heart and on the way,
I shall rise to glory soon.

Oh, the precious sunlight,
Oh, the precious sunlight,
Shining as the morning in my soul;
Let its crystal rays inspire our hearts with praise;
Oh, there’s sunlight in my soul!

2 Praise the Lord, there’s singing in my happy soul today,
Precious music to my Lord,
Cheering me with rapture as I pass along the way,
Sing, oh, sing in sweet accord. [Refrain]

3 Praise the Lord, there’s springtime in my happy soul today,
All is evergreen and fair,
Where the flow’rs are blooming and the dove of peace doth stay,
Oh, what treasures rich and rare! [Refrain]

4 Praise the Lord, there’s sweetness in my happy soul today,
“Taste and see the Lord is good”;
For His peace and glory I would ever live, and pray
That my life be as it should. [Refrain]

5 Praise the Lord, there’s gladness in my happy soul today,
Oh, what pleasure I have found!
From His sacred presence I would never, never stray,
In His love I would abound. [Refrain]
