Representative Text

1. Scatter smiles and sunshine
In some gloomy place;
Fill each passing moment
With some kindly grace;
Many hearts are aching,
Many homes are sad:
With your smiles and sunshine
You can make them glad.

Scatter the blessed sunshine,
Scatter its light along;
It will cheer and brighten
As you pass it on;
Scatter the blessed sunshine,
Scatter its light along;
It will cheer and brighten
As you pass it on.

2. Loving words, when spoken,
Passing down the years,
Help to raise the fallen,
Check the dropping tears;
Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Lead the weary wand'rers
To the Lord above. [Chorus]

3. When the souls is hopeless
In the depths of sin,
Whisper words of kindness,
Let the sunshine in.
Brighten up the pathway
With a smile or song;
Help the fallen brother,
Pass the kindness on. [Chorus]
