Representative Text

1 Roads steep and stony our feet find to tread;
Thorns by the wayside and pitfalls ahead.
Sing of God’s sunshine, from morning till night—
Sing it, believe it—that all will come right!

Sing of the sunshine,
Let in the light;
Somewhere, and sometime,
It all will come right.

2 Sing till God’s sunshine is flooding the heart;
Sing till the shadows of care all depart;
Sing till our comrades take part in the song;
Singing and trusting the whole way along! [Refrain]

3 Sing of the sunshine life’s clouds cannot hide,
If we keep faith in a Christ crucified,
Blessed soul-sunshine that brightens the road
While the heart’s singing of gladness and God. [Refrain]
