1 Scatter love’s sunbeams as onward you go,
Brighten life’s pathway with blessings below;
Scatter love’s sunbeams, their golden rays bright
May some lost wand’rer lead into the light.

Scatter the sunbeams over life’s way;
Shed forth their brightness day after day;
Scatter the sunbeams of joy divine;
Bright beams of love,
Over the world let them shine.

2 Scatter the blossoms of mercy so sweet,
Pluck out the thorn points that wound the tired feet;
Comfort the weary with fragrance and bloom,
With kindness loving life’s pathway illume. [Refrain]

3 Scatter hope’s carols from harp-strings of love;
Ring out the glad notes life’s discords above,
Till they shall echo o’er mountain and plain,
In cot and palace, a beautiful strain. [Refrain]
