Representative Text

1 Sunbeams of glory illuminate my soul,
Darkness gone forever,
My Saviour has control;
Gone is my sorrow
While Jesus I can see;
Love hast told the story,
Love of God for me.

Sunbeams of glory!
Love is the story!
Let the blessed tidings onward roll!
Sunbeams of glory!
Sunbeams of glory!
Shining, brightly shining in my soul!

2 O tell me never that Christ is not a friend!
I have often proved Him,
And on Him now depend;
Come, O ye weary,
Tho’ laden down with care,
He, your blessed Saviour,
Will your burden share. [Refrain]

3 Trusting in Jesus I find a sweet repose,
Peacefully and onward
My life’s great river flows;
Each day is sweeter,
The moments gently glide;
Rests my soul contented,
Jesus will provide. [Refrain]
