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!

Refrain:
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]
