1 Sunshine falls about me, flowers strew my way,
In my heart is music all the day;
Burdens cease to weary, sorrows melt away:
God is very good to me.

Refrain:
God, the Lord, is good to me,
Gentle, kind and true to me;
Strews my path with sunbeams, fills my heart with joy;
O, He is so good to me.

2 Summertime has come forever in my soul
Since I gave my Saviour all control;
O, how light my heart is since He made me whole:
He is good, so good to me. [Refrain]

3 Daily He bestows on me amazing grace,
Daily lets me feel His kind embrace;
And, upon the morrow, I shall see His face:
O, He is so good to me. [Refrain]
