1 Scatter the sunbeams, send forth the light;
Drive back the shadows of sorrow’s dark night;
Show to the cheerless Jesus, the Way;
Point to the regions of heavenly day.

Refrain:
Scatter the sunbeams, the bright golden sunbeams,
Scatter the sunbeams, the sunbeams of love;
Scatter the sunbeams, the bright golden sunbeams,
Scatter the sunbeams, the sunbeams of love.

2 Scatter the sunbeams, cheer with thy smile;
Bless other souls by a heart without guile;
Strive by kind actions wand’rers to win
Back from the bypaths of error and sin. [Refrain]

3 Scatter the sunbeams! hope beameth bright;
Bathed in her forehead with radiant light;
Shed forth that brightness where’er you go,
Blessing and blessed your life’s journey thro’. [Refrain]
